In its home opener, Portola’s varsity football team racked up points in the first half, and kept its lead through the second for a 46-20 win against the Weed Cougars. The win brought Portola’s record up to 2-1.

“I thought we improved from the previous week in many areas,” said Portola coach Steve Heskett. “The offensive line played very well, and (quarterback) Evan Leal had a huge game because of their efforts.”

“The real heroes of the game were the kids from Weed who made a 10-hour round-trip bus ride after the devastating week they had,” Heskett added.

Men and fish are alike. They both get into trouble when they open their mouths.

Lake Almanor

Surface water temperatures continue to decline into the mid to high 60-degree range. Fish are feeding more actively as the water cools.

Trout are in the colder water but starting to scatter as the lake cools. Feeding trout are increasingly focusing on pond smelt.

Question: I have a house on 5 acres in Northern California and have some really nice bucks on my land. Every day they come within a few feet of my house and graze on my garden and plants. If I purchase an A zone tag this year, can I legally shoot a deer on my land from my house or porch? My house is situated more than 200 yards from any other property or house and it is outside of the city limits. Thanks.

There’s something to be said about home-field advantage. This was clearly evident in Greenville’s 36-14 win against Dunsmuir last Friday night.

The Indians took down the visiting team for the first time the two teams faced each other since 2008. For the last five years, Greenville was the team on the road, and for the last five years, Dunsmuir was the victor.

The victory was Greenville’s first win of the season, which bumped its record up to 1-2.

Fish parasites

Question: I recently caught a number of trout that had what I believe to be parasites called Lernaea attached to them in various places. I know after reading another posting from this column titled “Parasites and Trout” that these “are killed during cooking, effectively eliminating any possibility of infecting humans eating the fish,” but I am considering smoking them. Would these parasites pose any threat if the trout were cold smoked rather than cooked, or would the curing that takes place eliminate any threat as well? Presumably if they were hot smoked there would be no threat because the fish are then cooked. I appreciate any info you can provide. Thanks.
