  Reid Mason says he spends a lot of time admiring his neighbors’ wood piles. He can’t help it.

  “Everyone has wood envy around here,” Mason said with a smile. “You see somebody’s stack and you go ‘oh man, he’s ready for winter.’

  “And then you see my stack and you say ‘oh, he’s got a ways to go.’ So wood envy is a big thing I see in this county. It’s really a funny thing. But we are into it.”

Almanor Fishing Association works to improve Almanor fishing

  Since the late 1800s, artificial methods to increase the fish population in California have been employed in order to fill a void between nature’s ability to produce fish and anglers’ demands for them.

  To keep up with the demand, the California state Legislature passed “An Act to provide for the restoration and preservation of fish in the waters of this state” April 2, 1870. Under this act, the three newly appointed commissioners of fisheries were given the duty to establish “fish breederies” and stock streams, lakes and bays with both foreign and domestic fish.
