2C Wednesday, Oct.. 27, 2010 Bulletin, Progressive, Record, Reporter Being sJeunked isn't such a bad thing L Michael Condon Staff Writer Sometimes a lake or stream can be red hot, but the fisherman ice cold. That happened to me re- cently. I went to my favorite fishing hole: Lake Almanor. Almanor can be a tough lake to fish. But it has lots of fish. Many kinds offish. And many big fish. The fishing at Almanor has been excellent lately. The pond smelt, whose popu- lations are cyclical, are ex- tremely abundant this year. Between generous trout Plants and abundant feed A1- manor has a healthy fish population now. Best of all I knew where the fish were. I had been catching lots of fish. I was so confident of the impending success that I talked the son-in-law into taking a couple days off work to go fishing. I assured him we would get into lots of fish ... little did I know. So we went to what I thought was the sweet spot only to find the fish had moved. I have no idea what hap- pened. I had high expectations. The fishing had been great. How can you go wrong this time of year? The fish are every- where and they are hungry. They practically jump into your boat they are so anx- ious to be caught. But not that day. The pond smelt appear to be scattered throughout the lake and likewise the trout. The trout are still there, and still hungry. You just have to work a little harder to find them. So the first day we got skunked. The next day we got rained out. I am not big on fishing in the rain and I am not thrilled about getting skunked. Despite all that, I have no complaints. I enjoy hanging out with the son-in-law. He keeps me young. What is not to like about a cozy cabin with a warm fire. The lakes seem to be where the most action is, but don't forget our local streams. The general fishing season for most local streams closes Nov. 15. Be sure to check the fishing reg- ulations before you head out. Lake Almanor Recent northeast winds have really stirred up the lake and as a result water clarity is now only about 6 - 8 feet. The wind makes it dif- ficult to stay on anchor and bait fish, so most boats have been trolling the East Shore or the west side of the penin- sula where the mountainside provides some protection from that wind. According to Doug Neal of Almanor Fishing Adven- tures the East Shore has been the "go to" area, provid- ing lots of action for the trolling crowd. Limits have been found from the Dorado Inn and into Lake Cove. However, the fish have been running on th e small side with most averaging around 14 to 18". Needlefish in the silver prism pattern rigged down from 5 - 20 feet have the top water hits com- ing early, and red and gold Speedy Shiners stacked down deeper at 25 and 35 feet, from midmorning into the afternoon. Keep in mind that water clarity is poor right now, and dodgers or flashers will really help the fish find your hook: Bait fishermen have been working Big Springs and the Spar Buoy areas, and some big fish have been coming from the late afternoon right up to dark. Crickets and mealworms three cranks off the bottom have produced some big brown trout while nightcrawlers and anchovy tails are the key for salmon. Frenchman Lake The fishing is good, and the drive up to Frenchman is incredible. Fall colors are at their best. Little Last Chance Creek Canyon and Dixie Val- ley are incredibly beautiful in the fall. The water level has dropped so docks are no longer in the water. Shore fishing is still excellent and nightcrawlers are the bait of choice. Call the good folks at Wig- gins Trading Post (993-4683) before you go to find out the latest conditions. Lake Davis Lake Davis is fishing very well now cooler tempera- tures have arrived. Fly fish- ing has produced plenty of 8- to 10-inch trout at Mosquito Slough. Shore fishing has been great at Mallard Cove. The fish are right off shore and biting. Ellis Hickman produced a 4-1/2 pound trout. He was us- ing a silver one-eighth ounce Kastmaster. He also brought in a sfringer full of 3- to 4-pound fish. He was using half of a night crawler at 10 - 20 feet out towards the island. Ed Dillard from Dillard's Guided Fishing reported he landed 17 14- to 16-inch fish in four hours. He was using the silver and the Copper Red Head Dick Nite #1. The current temperature of the lake is at 58 degrees. Call Dollard's Market for the latest Lake Davis fishing in- formation. No matter which lake or stream you choose, fall fish- ing is great. The air is crisp, the fish hungry and the fall colors are beautiful. Tile on- ly shortcoming is that fall is too short. So get out and en- joy it. The ice and snow aren't far off. Women's soccer playing to win The Feather River College women are still struggling to find their rhythm this sea- son, and lost 4-1 to the Lassen Cougars, Oct. 19. Lassen opened the scoring in the 10th minute with a hard shot to the far post from the left side of the 18- yard box. FRC keeper Kayla Healey, who had nine saves on the day, tried in vain to keep the ball out of the net. Halftime found the Lady Eagles down 1-0, even though they out shot the a cross to the far post, and first-year player Rosi Flores of Portola headed the ball home. "We have been working a lot on heading the ball," said FRC coach Don Williams. "It is so great when you see players learn and apply what we have been teaching in training." As the match wore on, the FRC women knew that they must throw more players forward if they wanted to have a shot at tying the match. "Losing 2-1 or 4-1 does not matter to me, I would rather have us give up more goals because we are trying to win the match than just sit back and lose 2-1." Don Williams, FRC soccer coach Cougars 8-4. In the 58th minute, Lassen broke through and lofted a shot high over the head of Healey for goal number two and the match winner. The FRC women were not done and would not give up. The Lady Eagles earned a corner kick from the right corner in the 65th minute. Madeline Ramos and Gaby Naranjo smartly played the Corner kick short, which led to Ramos dribbling toward goal. As defenders came up to challenge Ramos, she lofted Lassen took advantage of the Eagles' strategy and scored two more off the counterattack. "Losing 2-1 or 4-1 does not matter to! me," said Williams. "I would rather have us give up more goals because we are trying to win the match than just sit back and lose 2-1. "There is no such thing as a moral victory in soccer. What matters most to me is that our teams never, ever give up and our women did not even come close to giv- ing up today."

The four-person team played each hole in normal :fashion but determined its score on the next tee box us- ing two net scores as indicat- ed by symbols found there. No one knew which scores would be used until after the hole had been played. The team winning first place included Priscilla Piper, Sharon Rogers, Jacquie McMaster and Janet Reihsen. Taking second place was Ann Pratt, Ellen Fearing, and Maureen Ford. In third place were Pat Nichols, Jan Pierce, Connie Rehab and Garnet Bell. Lynn Hogan, Kathy Sipel, Esther Rimbault and Donna Swan- son came in fourth. The Turd Queen, deter- mined by the low net score over the field, was Cheryl Brennan. Closest to the pin was won by Lynn Hogan on the third hole and by Jody Lindroth on the twelfth hole. Bailey Creek Women The Bailey Creek Women's Club enjoyed fabulous fall weather for their final play day of the year Wednesday, Oct. 20. Winning low gross was Mary Ashburn of Greenville, followed by Jenni Cesarin and Lee Hunter. In addition to fun and competition, a highlight of the day was a long chip-in on the 7th hole by Joan Eychner of Foxwood. The club will play weekly on Wednesdays when Bailey Creek reopens in the spring. For membership informa- tion contact Jenni Cesarin at or 284-7469. Plumas Pines Women's Golf Club The ladies played the front nine twice, due to the fact that the golf course is busily getting ready for winter preparation and had the back nine closed for aerifica- tion on October 19th. The game was a 9-hole eclectic where the best score on a hole was used. It was a beau- tiful Indian Summer day that was enjoyed by all who played. Winning Low Gross over the field was Jan Tal- bott who scored a 49 and Scooter Kidwell won Low Net over" the field with a 36. Sharon Rogers won Low Gross in her flight with a 54, and Jennifer Zumbro won I,ow Net scoring a 37-1/2. There were no chip-ins which means there is only one more chance for some- one to win a pretty sizeable pot next week. The final offi- cial ladies play day is Tues- day, October 26th and Hal- loween Golf will be the game. If the weather stays warm like it's been, there may be unofficial ladies play days.
