They are cascade, centennial, and chinook. The general area is guy west bridge and Watt ave on the south side of the river. Not sure if they are still there as I haven't checked on them in two years.

I hate to resurrect old threads like this, but I've lived in Sacramento my whole life, and once I saw this thread saying there were hops near Watt Ave and Howe Ave, I HAD to check it out! I spent about 4 hours looking around pretty well. I spent like 2 hours near Guy West Bridge, going about a mile from the bridge on each side, looking. Then I spent about 2 more hours near Watt Avenue, mainly on the south side of the river.

Unfortunately, I couldn't find any. I found PLENTY of blackberry bushes, whose leaves look deceivingly like young hop leaves. So no hops, but I filled up on blackberries.

So, slomo, have you checked them recently, and were they close to the water?

If you have any info, that'd be awesome.
