An investigation is underway after a woman's body was found Friday morning in a slough near the Sacramento River, between Los Molinos and Red Bluff.

The body was found by a man who was fishing in a Sacramento River slough, just west of Joseph Avenue around 10:45 a.m. The fisherman reported the discovery to the Tehama County Sheriff's Office and deputies were able to pull the body out.

The fisherman told Action News Now the body was female and he estimated that it had been in the water for at least a week. The sheriff's office has not confirmed any of the details at this time.

Action News Now has a crew on the scene and we will bring you a full report tonight on KNVN-24 at 5 p.m.
