Watch salmon heading up the Sacramento.
Between 37,000 and 60,000 king (chinook) salmon, plus steelhead and other fish, make a trip during the fall run, usually from mid-September through mid-December. Most scoot up the latter underwater; you can watch them on TV monitors at the viewing plaza.
Two artificial spawning channels, birthplace for 1.5 million salmon, are on the other (southwest) side of the river. Between 7:30 and 4 weekdays, drop into the office near the channels to see a free 15-minute slide show on the facility.
To get to the channels from 1-5, take State 36 west to Main Street in Red Bluff; follow Main south 3-1/4 miles (it becomes County Road A8), then take Tyler Road east 3-1/2 miles.
