12B Wednesday, Nov. 5, 2014 Bulletin, Record, Progressive, Reporter New CDFW fishing guide is on the Web The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has launched an improved online fishing guide to help novice and experienced anglers plan successful fishing trips. The new guide is faster and provides detailed information about fish plants and fishing locations. The new version of the guide can be found at Guide. The map-based fishing guide allows users to research information about specific fishing locations by selecting from a drop-down menu, clicking directly on the map or by searching for a specific address, city or ZIP code. Specific information about each location includes a planting schedule, historical fishing information and comments about the terrain, local amenities, fish known to the location and links to lodging, camping and dining options. Other information displayed includes a link to driving directions, locations known to have quagga mussels and links to other pages, including fish planting information, regulations, license sales, boat launch facilities and a "safe to eat" portal. The safe to eat portal displays advisories about known fish contaminants in a specific location. In the coming year, CDFW plans to expand the fishing guide to include direct access to fishing regulations, license sales locations and boating facilities. "We put a lot of effort into creating successful fishing opportunities across the state," said CDFW Fisheries Branch Chief Stafford Lehr. "The new fishing guide will be a major tool that lets us share the useful information we have with the public and to help anglers of the state find new places to enjoy the sport." , round Plumas County Graeagle: Wino Wednesday, Longboards Bar & Grill.

Photos by James Wilson b Thrift store donates Maidu basket to Plumas County Museum James Wilson Staff Writer The volunteers at Nifty Thrifty, the Eastern Plumas District Hospital Auxiliary thrift store in Portola, were in for a surprise earlier last month. When sorting through the donations, one item stood out -- a Maidu basket estimated to have been woven close to 150 years ago. After approval from the auxiliary board, volunteers Mellouise Curry and Hilda Machado donated the basket to the Plumas County Museum last Thursday. Machado was volunteering at the thrift store and noticed the basket, thinking it could be authentic. She wanted to learn more about it andfind out if it really was what she thought it was, so she brought it to Scott Lawson, director of the Plumas County Museum. Once Lawson saw the basket, he immediately recognized it as.Maidu. The tightly woven basket is adorned with quaff plume designs and other tribal motifs. "The unique aspect is the multiple designs," said Lawson. It's just full with designs." Lawson said the basket was probably used for mixing, and at one time 'may have been waterproof. Maidu basket weavers used to use a coil design to make their baskets waterproof. Rather than sell the basket to raise money for Eastern Plumas Health Care, the auxiliary board decided it would be put to better use on display to the public. "The board of directors thought it would be best to donate it for research and education," said Curry. "We thought we should repatriate it closer to the tribe, rather than sell it to a private owner." Nifty Thrifty has donated items to the museum on multiple occasions, starting back in 1981. Money raised by the thrift store is used to buy patient equipment. To learn more about the recently donated basket and other Maidu baskets, go to the Plumas County Museum at 500 Jackson St. in Quincy. Thanks to the keen eyes of the store's volunteers, who recognized its historical value, this Maidu basket is now on display at the Plumas County Museum. rll 11 BIB m m m m m m m m m i 11 | SENIOR.
