CHICO, Calif. - Now that Sycamore Pool is officially open for the summer, it can be a great place to beat the heat.
The Spring Run Chinook season lasted late into the Spring. According to Fish Bio, a mere 10% of the returning salmon will survive their upstream swim.
The City of Chico had postponed the official opening one week because crews weren't able to drain the pool. They wanted to hold off on draining the water in the pool to avoid stressing the fish out further. Now, the Chinook Salmon have most likely moved on. The pool was drained and cleaned, and the lifeguards have been added.
