Salmon Fishing Fisherman and fisheries experts expect this year's fall salmon run to be the best in a decade.  And, although the population is only predicted to reach half of normal, experts say this year's large return of fishery salmon to Sacramento waterways is evidence Northern California's salmon population is rebounding after a devastating decline in 2008.  We'll look at what the return of Northern California salmon means to commercial and sport fisherman and what more salmon means for your dinner table.  Watch a video of salmon spawning at the Nimbus Hatchery HERE.  For salmon recipes cook HERE.

CAVE Women is an eclectic group of five local musicians who are either attending or have graduated from Sacramento State University.  Their often jazzy, sometimes gypsy, sound draws from the group's collective background in classical, a capella, Brazilian, and African music. CAVE Women are nominated for their first-ever Sammie this year.
