CHICO, Calif. - Due to a late run of the protected Spring-run Chinook Salmon, the official opening of Sycamore Pool is delayed.

The pool, which is located in the Bidwell Park One Mile Recreation Area, will officially open on June 8. 

Typically, the swim season starts on Memorial Day Weekend. 

City officials and the California Department of Fish & Wildlife have agreed to delay the opening to assist the fish in their migration to the upper Big Chico Creek to spawn. 

The pool will be available to swim during the holiday weekend and in the coming weeks, but there will be no lifeguards on duty until June 8. 

When opened, the pool will have lifeguards on duty from 12 - 7 p.m. every day except Thursdays. Those hours will remain until the Chico Unified School District's fall semester begins in August.
