Photo by James Wilson go for the attack during the 27. Seven teams participated I James Wilson , Sports Editor Though it's baseball and softball season now, Quincy and Portola's high schools opted to play using a different type of ball; a dodgeball. Both schools held fundraisers to benefit their student bodies, and both tournaments were well attended• Quincy's tournament took place last Thursday, March 27. Seven teams participated, mainly made up of different members of the community• The local California Highway Juan Rodriguez, right, dodges a ball thrown by Brad Miller of the teachers' team, the Purple Punishers, at the Portola High School dodgebal/tournament March 14. Photo submitted Patrol, Forest Service, Quincy Volunteer Fire Department, Quincy varsity baseball team, members of Plumas Christian School, Mike Curran Trucking and the Quincy High School History Team all competed to be the top dog of the tournament. Quincy High School's varsity baseball team came out as the victor, not losing a single game. The History Team was runner up. In addition to the set games to determine the champion, all teams were asked if there was any team in specific they wanted to challenge. The Quincy Volunteer Fire Department challenged the local CHP, and won in a close match. Portola held its dodgeball tournament first, on March 14. Students from the high school made up five of the teams that competed. Sixth-graders from the elementary school formed two teams, and teachers from Portola High School formed the eighth team that competed. " The tournament was double-elimination style and the teachers won the whole shebang undefeated. In total the tournament raised $900 to benefit the seventh and eighth grade classes. BASEBALL, from page 1C and Colusa were named co-champions. The recent downpour also affected the Trojans' home field. According to Kelsch, when the team returned home, they found ducks swimming in center field• In other news involving Plumas County's high school baseball teams, Portola turned around to dominate its second game of the Biggs tournament, against Williams. Chester played one game last week, losing to University Prep. Greenville was supposed to host Loyalton on March 27, but the game was canceled due to weather. Portola 20, Williams 2 Later in the afternoon, after the lopsided loss to Quincy, the Tigers came back to wallop Williams. Though the win was impressive, juxtaposed with the loss against Quincy, it ended up frustrating Portola coach Tim Brubaker. "My guys have to learn to compete all of the time, not just some of the time," said Brubaker. "We have a young team that still has a lot to learn. Against Quincy, we didn't compete from the first pitch thrown. Then against Williams, we won the game early•" Williams struck first blood with one run in the top of the first. Portola came back with five runs in the first, four in the second, nine in the third and one in the fourth. Portola's batters finally got into their zones. Will Marquette led the ' Tigers at bat, and even hit a grand slam during the game. Traven Carnes pitched the whole game for Portola, striking out four batters and giving up only three hits with two runs. University Prep 3, Chester 2 Chester traveled to University Prep on March 27 for its only game of the week. The wind was blowing pretty hard, which made for some difficult playing conditions. Both teams had trouble at bat, but University Prep squeaked out one more run than Chester to win the game. The Volcanoes scored their only two runs in the sixth inning. University Prep's pitcher was spot-on, and struck out 11 Chester batters. In contrast, Chester only struck out five batters from University Prep. "(We're) just not coming through with big hits," commented Chester coach Terry Hernandez." (We) missed a pop-up that scored one too. Good game." FISHING, from page lC some nice fish off the causeway just outside of Chester. I have not heard any reports, but I would except that fly anglers are finding some nice browns in the coves along the west shore• Lake Davis Lake Davis has been producing some excellent action for fly anglers. Fishing pheasant tail, hares ear or prince nymphs under an indicator has been the most productive technique. The east shore is best, especially when the sun is off the water. When the sun is on the water there are a few blood midges showing• Fish are plump for spring and averaging 17 to 22 inches long. Bucks Lake Spring fishing can be great at Bucks Lake. Bucks has a tremendous number of fish. All summer long anglers catch kokanee salmon, brook trout and rainbows. : There are also some huge browns and monster lake trout (Mackinaw) in Bucks Lake. Early spring is when the big boys come up into shallow water. The hungry bruisers cruise the lake shore in search of smaller fish. Bank anglers can get into some beautiful fish this time of year, but the fish are on the move so it's the boat anglers who have the best chance of hooking into some of Bucks' biggest fish. Trolling Rapalas and other baitfish imitations near shore is the most productive. Fast-action lures like Speedy Shiners work great and allow you to troll a little fast and cover more water. The lake level is lower than I have ever seen it this time of year. Launching a boat is bestdone with a four-wheel drive vehicle. The road is not plowed past Haskins, but there were some tracks in the snow. My truck is two-wheel drive so I did not explore how far those tracks went. Frenchman Lake Frenchmari 6ntinu s to • i ~ f!; fish well. Ban~ anglers are drifting worms suspended off the bottom or using PowerBait. Fish are averaging 14 to 16 inches. Pressure is very light. Lower Feather River (Oroville area) The spring steelhead fishing is very good with best reports coming from the low flow section (Highway 70 bridge to outlet). Swinging pond smelt patterns, egg patterns and bright green caddis pupae are all catching fish. Blue-winged olive nymphs are hot flies midday on overcast and rainy days. North Fork Feather (above Lake Oroville) Fishing is open from the Cresta Powerhouse to downstream to Lake Oroville. The water is cold but the fish are active for a couple hours during the warmest part of the day. The best method is suspending midges and blue-winged olive mayfly nymphs under a small indicator. The col l water has the fish holding in the tailouts. Fishing pressure is very light.
