OROVILLE, Calif. - Oroville’s Annual Salmon Festival looked a little different this year.

The event was scaled down to protect the public’s health. There were only a few activities that were scheduled for the 2020 version of the annual event.

One of the events scheduled is the Kayak Floats. They are organized by the Forebay Aquatic Center, and they are designed so people can get close up so that they can see the salmon in the Feather River.

Brad Cooke the Director of the Forebay Aquatic Center said people were really enjoying the event.

"And we have fishery biologists that came and educated us and we pulled fish out of the water. We have seen all kinds of wildlife and people are just loving it to get outside,” said Cooke.

Cooke also added there are more kayak rides tomorrow and they might be having a couple more over the next few weeks.

It's a warmer and windier day for our area in the wake of the storm from this weekend. A Red Flag Warning continues for the valley through 8pm and for the Sierra through late Tuesday morning, with hotter weather returning.
