“The best fishermen I know try not to make the same mistakes over and over again; instead they strive to make new and interesting mistakes and remember what they learned from them.” ~ John Gierach


If there is one constant in this week’s fishing report it is that one day the fishing is hot, and the next day it is cold. Fishing can be like that.

There are many elements to fishing success. Timing is one of them. Add a comment

The Quincy Trojans football team will have a new — and very recognizable — face leading the charge for a Northern Section Mid-Valley League championship in 2015.

The Plumas County Unified School District has approved the hire of Chris “CB” Brown as the head coach of the Trojans for the upcoming season, which is a reprisal of the role he undertook during the 2011 season. That year, Quincy went 7-4 overall and 4-2 in MVL standings before losing to Modoc, 27-6, in the first round of the playoffs. Add a comment

After falling 1-4 to conference leader Cabrillo College in their first match of the day, the Golden Eagles bounced back with a 4-1 victory over Gavilan College last week to finish the program’s first-ever weekend of competition with a 2-2 record.

“Cabrillo is a really good team,” Feather River head coach Sarah Ritchie said. “But we seemed to be getting better as we played them. Today was a huge improvement in play from yesterday. The girls are learning as they go and that showed today. I’m very proud of them.”

Against Gavilan, Feather River College’s No. 5 pair, Alexis Kimbrell and Alexia Southern, beat Alexa Balistreri and Serena Adame by the scores of 21-15 and 21-16.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.
—John Buchan

Lake trout, also called Mackinaw, are a big draw this time of year. They are by far the largest of our local fish. Fish over 10 pounds are pulled from local waters every year. And they are easiest to catch from ice-out to mid-spring.

Already this season Jacob Capp caught a 14-pound lake trout at Bucks Lake and Hans Mulgraber pulled an 11-pounder from Gold Lake.

Lake trout, like brook, are classified as char, which are closely related to, but different from, true trout. The differences between trout and char are so minor that they are of no consequence to the angler. (I suspect the fish aren’t too interested either.)
