The Fish and Game Commission will also discuss and possibly decide the issue at regularly scheduled meetings. The first DFG meeting is scheduled for Friday, May 4, in Sacramento, Resources Building Auditorium, 1416 Ninth St., from 6-8 p.m. In the last two years, the use of mechanical duck decoys-- also known as spinning-wing decoys, "moto-ducks" or "roto- ducks"--has increased, and so has the debate about whether they should be permitted for waterfowl hunting. Some hunters claim that widespread use of the devices will dramati- cally increase the waterfowl harvest, resulting in the need to reduce bag limits and sea- sons. Others, however, feel the devices will help recruit and maintain hunters by increas- ing hunter success. i i ecoy The DFG, in cooperation with the University of California at Davis, California Waterfowl Association, United States Geological Survey, Biological Resources Division, the Central Valley Habitat Joint Venture, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, has been collecting and assessing data on the possible impact of these devices. Data includes information on the harvest, harvest rates, and the popula- tion status of ducks breeding and wintering in California. In reports to the Fish and Game Commission, the DFG has not, to date, been able to discern any biological effect. However, results from last year's hunting season and other yet-to-be completed assessments may warrant a different conclusion and the DFG may be making recom- mendations to the Fish and Game Commission regarding mechanical decoy use in the 2001-2002 waterfowl hunting seasons.

The Department of Fish and Game said the ocean salmon season for the area between Horse Mountain near Shelter Cove and Humbug Mountain in Oregon opens May 17 and runs through July 8, under a limit of two salmon, 20 inches or greater per day and four in seven consecutive days. Coho, or silver, salmon may not be taken at any time in ocean or inland waters of California. No steelhead caught at sea may be kept, either, the DFG said. Fish and Game said the Horse Mountain-Humbug area--also known as the "Klamath Management Zone"---reopens to salmon sport fishing on July 24 and runs through Sept. 3, with the same daily limit of two, but an increased one-week limit of six fish in seven consecutive days. The "Klamath Control Zone"--a 12-mile square area at the mouth of the Klamath River--is closed to fishing dur- ing August. Fish and Game said gear and fishing rod restrictions remain the same as last year. Anglers fishing for salmon from a boat may have no more than two single-point, single-shank, bar- bless hooks and only one rod per angler. Klamath River king salmon stocks are mixed with salmon from other river systems in ocean waters of the KMZ before they launch their I Lake Almanor Country Club (LACC) Pro-Shop Manager Jeff Smith called early last week to share the excitement of a that was made Sunday, April 22.

The DFG's Region One office' said new 2001-2002 sport hunt- ing licenses, tag applications and tags for deer and bear hunting are now available at the Redding and Eureka offices. "This is the earliest date that we have had licenses and tags for sale," said Barbara Pike, program technician in Redding. Although many deer and bear hunters wait until fall to purchase available licenses and tags, upwards of 80,000 California hunters buy licens- es and tag applications in the spring so they can compete through public drawings for X-zone and special deer hunt- ing tags and for elk, bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope tags. Fish and Game said this year's deadline for drawing applications to reach the Sacramento license office is June 4.
