The Lower Feather River originates from Lake Oroville and flows generally south across the Sacramento Valley, east of the Sutter Buttes, past Oroville and Yuba City, and discharges to the Sacramento River approximately 20 miles north of Sacramento. Agriculture is the single largest land use in the subwatershed, making up roughly 60% of all lands. The Lower Feather River is an important habitat for fall- and spring-run Chinook salmon. The Sutter County Resource Conservation District has recently developed a management plan for the subwatershed.
