Golden Eagles ready to soar in coming season

Every season has its sports; the changing colors of an approaching winter in Plumas County generally (excluding skiers and their mountain-bound schussing) means taking the action indoors as the temperatures drop, the snow falls and the hoop dreams of Feather River College basketball players grow in intensity.

The men’s program at FRC has been led by head coach Randy Rick since 1999. In that first year he put together a 25-5 record and brought home the first Golden Valley Conference championship for the previously floundering teams.

Under Rick’s tutelage FRC has won six Golden Valley Conference championships and has turned out more Division 1 players than any team in the conference. Four former Eagles currently play professionally overseas internationally. Seven former players are now high school basketball head coaches while one player was drafted by the NFL’s Tampa Bay Buccaneers out of the community college level.

Waterfowl decoys

Question: With waterfowl season approaching, I was wondering if you could clarify Regulation 507 regarding duck decoys that move. That regulation specifies moving wings or blades are prohibited until after Nov. 30, but I cannot find a prohibition regarding motor-powered decoys that simulate swimming (clamp-on propeller), or water movement to simulate feeding (magnet type) or battery-powered jerk string. In short, are only moving-wing decoys prohibited during the first six weeks of the season?

Three big wins at last weekend’s rodeo at the Plumas-Sierra County Fairgrounds put the Feather River College men’s and women’s teams to the top of the standings in the West Coast Region.

The FRC men’s team placed first both days, while the women’s team took second under University of Nevada Las Vegas on Friday and came in first Saturday.

Fishing Report for the week of 10/10/2014

“There is no greater fan of fly-fishing than the worm.”

—Patrick F. McManus

The dog days of summer are quickly becoming a thing of the past. 

The warm water of summer (too warm if you happen to be a trout) is giving way to much more comfortable water temperatures thanks to cooler nights, shorter days and a couple of very welcome rain showers.

This is my favorite time of year. 

Normally my biggest challenge is figuring out how to allocate my scarce free time between the harvest in my garden, deer hunting and fishing. 

This year the gophers and deer have pretty much eliminated the gardening option so I am free to focus on the other two activities (and I have a little extra motivation for the deer hunting). But this is about fishing.

The stream flows are still pretty skinny, but falling temperatures are helping improve the bite in local streams and rivers. However, the lakes are where the action is.
