The Shasta County boating unit was called to the Sacramento River around 10:30 a.m. Thursday to rescue three fishermen.

According to Shasta County Sheriff's Deputy Gary Van Dyne, the group of three men launched from the Bonnyview boat ramp to go fishing Thursday morning.

The tide pulled their boat to the left side of the river and they became caught in some trees, the boat then flipped and all three men had to be rescued by the boating unit. The boat flipped about half a mile from the boat ramp.

All three men were wearing life jackets and were uninjured. The boat was not recovered.
