2C Wednesday, April 15, 2015 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter TOURNAMENT, from page lC third. Fall River would throw up a six-run fifth inning after Leal tapered, though Lowdermflk would come in for the save. Portola 10, Tulelake 0 The Tigers' Mitch Pearson managed to throw a three-hitter against the Tulelake Honkers in Game 2, all while netting five strikeouts against 19 batters in five innings. Combined with the action on the mound, Portola managed to send Lohi Peiler across the mound three times, with Romano and Baumbach adding a pair of runs each as well Leal, Heffron and Billups also scored. Defensively, Baumbach and Romano led with five putouts on five chances each. Peiler was also perfect in his fielding average, nailing three-of-three stops against Tulelake. Next up, the Tigers will travel to Maxwell this Friday before returning home on April 24 to host Biggs. Greenville first baseman Landin Carmichael nearly gets the stop against a Whittell runner in last week's Photo by Greg Knight tournament. "Fishing h t one day, could be quite cold the next '. Michael Cond0n i ' Staff Writer "The best fishermen I know try not to make the same mistakes over and over again; instead they strive to make new and interesting mistakes and remember what they learned from them." John Gierach l If there is one constant in this week's fishing report it is that one day the fishing is hot, and the next day it is cold. Fishing can be like that. There are many elements to fishing success. Timing is one of them. Fishing when the fishing is really hot is a real treat. Success is always fulfilling. But those slow days serve a purpose too. They remind us that fish, like all of nature, are complicated; more complicated than we can understand. That adds marvel and mystery to fishing. It also keeps us humble. Lake Almanor The bite at Almanor was slowing a bit prior to the recent rain and snow. It has slowed even more since then. But it's not all bad news. The fishing should be rebounding by now. All that storm really did was prolong the Spring bite. Doug Neal of Almanor Fishing Adventures (258-6732; m) recommends trolling number-two silver or white Needle Fish, or 1/6 oz. Speedy Shiners in silver or red and gold. The best speed to troll is about 3 miles per hour. Another option is to slow troll (about 1 mile per hour) threaded nightcrawlers behind a dodger. Whether slow trolling a worm or trolling a little faster with a lure, Doug recommends fishing 8 to 15 feet deep early in the morning and then go deeper as the sun climbs.
