The focal depth was 3.9 miles below the surface. It was widely felt from 0roville to Redding, to Susan- ville, but there were no reports of dam- age or injuries. The activity began on November 7 with a series of six Mls, then paused on November 8, surged on the 9th with 22 events and the 10th with 23 events, then shortly after midnight,the largest event occurred. It was followed by a robust aftershocks sequence and by the end of the reporting period, the sequence haclproduced 203 earth- quakes, including 54 M 2s but no more in the M 3 range. The sequence is ongoing. This was the first M 3 quake at Lassen Peak since 2001 and the largest since a robust swarm in 1953. The earthquake swarm in northern Washoe County, Nevada jumped into high gear, producing nearly 500 earthquakes, including eight M 4s and 68 M 3s. The larg- est jolts measured M 4.5 and M 4.6 and occurred November 7 and 12.

Photo by James Wilson Sturgeon population struggles during severe drought Sturgeon in drought .Question." I have a question about sturgeon. Are they being negatively affected by the drought? Since sh]r eon ll Vtt UUUII &rqunu mllllOIlSOI years, they must have endured many droughts and so hopefully this drought will not hit them as hard as maybe some other species that are less hardy and more sensitive to changes. Is this true? --Anonymous Answer: That's an excellent question, but the answer is complicated. According to California Department of Fish and Wildlife Environmental Program Manager Marty Gingras, plenty of sturgeon in California will likely outlive this drought because of the state's adaptive management of white sturgeon harvest (green sturgeon is a threatened species so harvest is illegal) and protection from poaching. Sturgeon and salmon are anadromous species, but salmon mature and then die in just two to three years. By comparison, female sturgeon typically mature after 15-plus years, can spawn more than once (though not annually) and can live many decades. These characteristics mean that sturgeon are resilient, but it also means they can easily be overfished. California's sturgeon fisheries were (with minor exceptions) closed from 1901 through 1953 due to overfishing. Commercial harvest of white sturgeon is illegal and recreational harvest is now managed through area closures, bag limits, size limits and gear restrictions. Most sturgeon spawn in the Sacramento River and young-of-the.year fish migrate downstream to rear in the San Francisco Estuary. Large numbers of young sturgeon survive the migration only in years with nearly flooding Sacramento River flows during both winter and spring. For sturgeon it is as though 2014 is the eighth straight year of drought. Although a relatively good "cohort" of white sturgeon spawned in 2006 will soon be harvestable, we expect the CALIFORNIA OUTDOORS CARRIE WILSON California Dept of Fish & Wildlife fishery to decline substantially. Adaptive management of California's white sturgeon through predictable ebbs in abundance is key to conservation of the species and its fishery. Deer tag validation Question: If I take a legal buck on my own property, then tag and process it on site, do I need to get the tag validated since it will require me to transport the carcass off my property? --Ruth W. 'Answer: Yes. All deer must be validated even when taken on private property. Remember, Wildlife belong to the people of the state of California, not to the owners of land where animals live. The law states the animal's tag must be validated regardless of where taken and may not be transported initially except for the purpose of taking it to be validated (Fish and Game Code, section 4341). Dorado limits Question: I went fishing out of San Diego twice this fall. The first time we fished in California waters off San Clemente Island and the second time we fished in Mexican waters. I understand the daffy bag limit for dorado in Mexico is two fish, but can't find it in the regulations booklet for California. 'What is it? --Chuck K. Answer: Dorado do not have a specific bag limit in California and so they fall under the general bag limit of 10 fish of any one species with no more than 20 finrish in combination of all species (California Code of Regulations, Title 14, section 27.60(a)).
