In Your Backyard: San Joaquin River

The sun sets on the San Joaquin River and Murphy the dog. Picture taken at Fresno's River West.

In this week's "In Your Backyard," FOX26 Sports Anchor Nick King stays in Fresno, to spend time on the San Joaquin River. It's the second longest river in California, more than 300 miles long from the High Sierras to San Francisco - but we're focusing on a 22 mile stretch from the Friant Dam to Highway 99. Kayaking, canoeing, tubing, fishing, rope swinging and more are a possibility just minutes from home, and the cold water feels great during the triple digit summer days in the Central Valley.
