Bike race Thursday In recognition of bike-to- work week, Feather River College is hosting its second annual Alley Cat bicycle race this Thursday, May 13. It may be called a race, but the Alley Cat is more about merriment than competi- tion. Cyclists are encouraged to register in teams of two or three, and costumes are re- quired. Decorated bicycles are also popular. The race is free and starts at 4 p.m. in front of the Alley Cat Caf6 in Quincy, with signups beginning at 3 p.m. The race will last approxi- mately two hours and end at Gansner Park with a potluck barbecue and awards cere- mony.

Photo submitted FISHING REPORT Frenchman Lake Fishing continues to be good from the shore at or near the dam, and streams have been excellent for fish- ing since they have opened. Most fishermen are float- ing night crawlers off the bottom with bobbers and marshmallows (white or chartreuse). Various lures such as Rooster Tail (char- treuse or red), Spin-it-lure (copper with red dots) and Dick Nite's (all kinds) seem to be producing good results. Call ahead for current info, 993-4683. Report courtesy of Wiggin's Trading Post, 993-4683 Feather River River remains high, but clear water helps fishing. Fishing the eddies and un- dercuts producing most fish. Bouncing nightcrawlers through drifts good method. Rooster Tails and Panther Martins best lures. Lakes Basin Road closed. Report courtesy of Ace Mountain Hardware & Sports; 836-2589 Lake Davis As of May 7, the fishing conditions remain to be good. PowerBait, worms and salmon eggs are still working good for bait fishing. The darker colored nymphs and red wire Copper Johns are still great for fly fishing. The temp of the lake is at 48 de- grees and at 61% of max. The only dock that is in is at Honker. Trolling is good at this time. Ed Dillard landed 14 fish in four hours using a combo of the Wee Dick Nite and the #1 Dick Nite. He also had luck with the Needl #1 Red Dot frog. His fish were 12 - 14 inches on average. The lake is open on the east side all the way down to Mosquito. The campgrounds are still closed except for the ones at the Grizzly store. Watch out for the pelicans. I watched them steal three fish along with the stringer from a fisherman. Report courtesy of Sierra Super Stop/Dollard's; 832- 5251 Lake Almanor For bank fishing, best bet is Hamilton Branch using white Crappie jigs or: mini gitzits. For some good size fish, try some salmon roe. For the jetties in Prattville, use SWl0 Kastmaster or nightcrawlers with Power- Bait. For trout by the dam use a Rapala or give meal- worms a try. Trollers are taking fish with trolling flies, nickel speedy shiners and a #2 chartreuse Red Dot Needl- fish with some carp spit or trophy trout down 5 - 10 feet in early morning. Some reports of good size browns and rainbows, 2 - 5 pounds on the West Shore, Big Springs area and Rec #1. Try crickets with meal- worms with a size 10 hook. The salmon are showing around Big Springs and down by the dam with sar- dines a couple of turns off the bottom. The small mouth are starting to show up at points and drop-offs -- use gitzits and ripbaits or a cricket by itself. Call Roger Keeling for guide service 284-6429.
