I remember when the creeks in Canyon Country where closed because of the Stickleback fish , It stopped all dredging in the area ! ,  San Francisquito Canyon was one of my favorite places to sluice below where the dam broke. now you can't even park on the side of the road.

Years ago, I went into the area that has a big parking lot with the bear proof trash cans.  Someone had told me at a Keene Meeting that there was a hill on the other side of the stream where they had found a few small nuggets.  At the time I had my 5000 so I decided to figure out the story.

I went across the creek and headed up a little gully.  It was a big mistake.  It seems that everyone had used the parking lot for a place to shoot everything on the other side!  Some of it was old lead with the 3 rings and a few other pieces but no gold.  After that I gave up on the area and went to other places much farther away with less trash.  Maybe there is still some gold there?
