Warm water challenges anglers

The fishing was good; it was the catching that was bad.

—A.K. Best

Fishing in late summer is normally pretty tough. The warmer water and depleted oxygen levels slow the fish’s metabolism and feeding. The low water in the streams makes for less cover, resulting in fish that are more skittish.

This year has been especially tough. The meager snowpack caused the water temperatures to rise and the levels to fall even more quickly than usual.

Fall isn’t far away. One very good thing about fall is that the fishing picks up. But if you are not willing to wait for fall fishing, there are still fish to be caught even in the heat of late summer.

There are some big changes to the athletic department going into effect at Chester High School this year. New staffing nearly across the board will affect every aspect of how Chester plays its game.

One big change is the title of athletic director. This summer, long-time Athletic Director Terry Hernandez left Chester after 20 years of teaching and coaching for a position at Central Valley High School in Redding. Paul Hardig took over the AD position after Hernandez’s departure.

Hernandez was also Chester’s head football coach. Former assistant coach Rich Dreith took the helm of the team, and plans to steer it into another winning season.

Legally, wildlife rehabilitation must be left to the professionals

Rescued rattlesnake

Question: I found and took home a dying Northern Pacific rattlesnake (Crotalus oreganus oreganus) after it became a victim of a wildfire. It’s now eating great and able to move fluently which is great and a job well done in my eyes. I’ve had it in captivity close to three weeks now. Is it OK to place it back into the wild (away from humans, of course)?
