Round Valley Lake was hustling and bustling last Saturday, as Plumas National Forest and its partners hosted the annual Kids’ Fishing Derby. The 18th annual event had a turnout of 20 participants, and had a lot to do.

Everyone had a great time with a variety of fish caught. In addition to fishing, children made crafts, played trivia games and checked out insects through a microscope at the aquatic-insect station that was set up. John Shower, from Greenville, brought his quality terrestrial bug collection that also included many flying insects.

The Mt. Hough Ranger District decided to have a science focus at this year’s derby, to show the participants some of the lesser-seen aquatic animals of the forest’s water systems.

The smoke blanketing Plumas County has many people asking "where is the fire?"

As it turns out, the fire is a long way from here.  The smoke is from the Happy Camp Fire on the Klamath National Forest.  The fire is over 99,000 acres in size and has been burning in very rough and inaccessible terrain since August 12th.  The fire has the potential to be one of the largest fires in the history of California.
