From what I remember, someone talked to the sherriff and it was never open to the public for shooting; although many people have shot there regardless

There are previous threads that discussed this. Search "Davis Levee Clean up" or something. If you are concerned I would read them. I would advise anyone who asks not to do it. There are a number of reasons why that you can read about in the previous thread I mentioned.

My own personal top three reasons for not doing so are as follows:

1.) The land beyond the canal is a wetland wildlife refuge.
2.) The water in the canal is part of an environmentally protected watershed.
3.) Last summer I watched a Sheriff's helicopter show up when people were shooting there, and proceed to chase them east and then northbound on the freeway towards Natomas. Never heard about the outcome.

It just does not seem to be worth the risk of all the hassle and/or charges they could justifiably or not throw at you.

On a side note, that area may be getting increased attention in the press during the next election. The watershed rights are in dispute yet again as someone tries to sell the water to So-Cal. It might make the local ballot as an initiative.

I went out there once (didn't shoot) to check the area out.

There are no trespassing signs posted (they have been shot at) There's some PG&E equipment (natural gas?) out there, The place has also been treaded like a dump, with a lot of garbage. Like others have said, the water area and beyond (the place you would shoot into) is a protected wetland.

It's not worth the risk. I've heard stories of the Yolo sheriff showing up out there as well.

Just go to YSA, it's a few miles away. Yes, you have to follow range rules and pay a few bucks, but it's a lot better than loosing your guns and your rights.

The only place in Yolo besides a gun range (YSA) is up cache creek over the low water bridge. It is at the far north of the county but connects to BLM land.
