Fishing for American shad in the American River

American Shad are a popular sportfish that run up Central Valley rivers to spawn in the late-spring. These fish, the largest member of the herring family, put up an incredible fight and can be caught on both fly and spinning rods. Adding to the fun, when anglers get into them, they really get into them. Watch as one Sacramento family hooks fish after fish this week in the American River in the Sacramento.

Lightweight jacket perfect for rainy weather

Out on the trails, nothing can turn a fun day into a miserable one faster then getting cold and wet. When unexpected showers come, it's nice to have a lightweight cover that that will keep you comfortable on the move. The Tantrum Hooded Jacket from Outdoor Research is just that, a super lightweight jacket (5.2 ounces) that can easily be stowed away in a backpack - or worn snuggly against your back with its integrated waist belt - until needed.

A simple plan to strengthen your core

Core strength, though it has been a hot term in the fitness industry for more than a decade, has unfortunately become synonymous with six-pack abs. Those are nice, but the core doesn't stop where your shirt hem ends. In fact, for women, the core pretty much starts there.

Outdoor fun: Stop-and-go soccer!

Here's a skill-building version of the classic kids' game red light, green light. One player, the traffic cop, stands on the sidelines of the playing area; the players line up at one end, each with a soccer ball. The cop turns her back and yells, "Green light!" and the players start dribbling their balls across the field. When she yells, "Red light!" and turns around, the players must stop immediately - and trap their balls. If they don't, they go back to the starting line. The first player to cross the field becomes the new traffic cop.

Motivational mind tricks: How real women get to the gym

Even those athleisure-sporting, tea detox-promoting, smoothie-sipping fitness enthusiasts (you know, the ones who upload sweaty post-SoulCycle pictures on Instagram and tweet about their amazing six-mile morning hikes) sometimes feel like skipping the gym. No one can be 100 percent motivated all the time. Which is why celebs pay big bucks to make the gym and its highly motivating instructors come to them. Real people, however, have to rely on good, old-fashioned mind tricks when the motivation is waning. So we searched high and low for the best techniques real women have to offer - and by "real women," we mean fitness instructors, health bloggers, and exercise specialists (aka women who know their way around a gym).
