2C Wednesday, June 18, 2014 Feather River rodeo heads to national finals James Wilson Sports Editor w • €, Right now, members of the men's and women's rodeo teams out of Feather River College are giving ittheir all in Casper, Wyoming. The team started competition last Suffday in the College National Finals Rodeo and will compete through June 21. FRC went into the finals with quite a few accomplishments already taken care of. The men's team placed second in the West Coast Region, just slightly behind Cal Poly. The women's team placed first, marking the first year it topped the men's team in the standings. Going into the finals, FRC looked pretty competitive. The men's team was ranked sixth overall, against teams from much larger schools with much bigger budgets. The women's team was ranked 10th. Some FRC hopefuls include Grant Denny, ranked third in the nation for bareback riding. Courtney Wood was ranked in the top 10 in the nation in both goat tying and women's all-around. Kara Kohutek was ranked fourth in breakaway roping, and Quin Hundsdorfer was ranked eighth. Last year, the FRC men's team was ranked fourth in the nation and placed first in the West Coast Region, but slipped in the finals rodeo to finish 48th overall. Everything that could've possibly gone wrong did. In a pre-rodeo interview with FRC head coach Jesse Segura, the coach expressed a deeper level of hubris going into the competition. "Our teams should do good, but we'll see how it goes," said Segura. "We'rejust going to take it one round at a time. We had ome tough luck last year, but everyone seems to be in shape and healthy this year." Prior to the CNFR, Denny competed in some pro rodeos and placed high, even winning men's overall in the E1 Paso rodeo• If this is any indication, the teams from FRC should do just fine. To find out how FRC places in nationals, see next week's Sports and Recreation section.

These huge and beautiful yellow mayflies are not found in many part of California. But they are becoming a big attraction in Plumas County. They are found in parts of the Midwest in numbers sufficient to inspire a Hitchcock movie when they splatter windshields and crunch underfoot. But it is very different here. Hexagenia are large, beautiful and graceful mayflies that occur in only a few places ir our state and in numbers that stimulate amazing fish feeding rather than Hitchcock movies• Hexagenia begin hatching in mid-June: The peak of the 4, although I would expect them to be a bit early this year. Until last year Lake Almanor and Butt Lake were the only places Hexagenia were found• Last year there were several confirmed reports that they had stlccessfully moved to Lake Davis. Time will tell how well .they become established at Davis; but given the Hexagenia's preference for a muddy substrate in shallow water, there is every reason to believe that Lake Davis is prime habitat• This bodes very well for what is already an exceptional fishery. Lake Almanor Lake Almanor seems to have its own personality. Some lakes are easy to read. They are fairly predictable. But not Almanor. Almanor is fickle• You can fish one technique one day, or even a few days, and have an amazing time catching some beautiful fish. You can go back the very next day and do the exact same thing and come up empty• Almanor has been that . way for me for 30-some years• Studies show that using Testosterone products may significantly increase your risk of a heart attack, stroke, blod clots and death.

And then I talk to other anlers and find out it is pretty much the same for everybody. Everybody I know gets skunked at Almanor. But nobody has a bad day on the lake. Getting skunked gets under-reported; that is just the nature of us anglers• But those that are catching some fish are reporting some good action, according to Doug Neal, of Almanor Fishing Adventures• Doug spends enough time on Almanor that he probably gets skunked far less than the rest of us and he knows more about who is catching, fish and how they are Catching them. Doug reports good action off of Rocky Point, from Rec 1 to the A-Frame,and in the Big Springs area. But as I said, there are also reports of boats getting skunked at these same places. Suspended baits are working. Try crickets and mealworms a few cranks off the bottom• Trollers are doing well fishing half-crawlers behind dodgers and also with red • and gold Speedy Shiners. Anglers are catching some nice king salmon fishing anchovy • tails at the snag and at Big Springs. The salmon seem to move in and then leave so the spot that is hot one day is cold the next. The Hex hatch should be heating up now. This is a major fish food fest.
