The annual Horses Unlimited Bowl-a-Thon is back and set to take place at 1 p.m. Saturday, June 22, at La Sierra Lanes in Quincy. The annual event is one of the nonprofit’s largest fundraisers.
After an incredible season, winning the West Coast regionals and being ranked fourth in the nation, the Feather River College rodeo team fell at the College National Finals Rodeo in Casper, Wyo., the week of June 9 – 15.
“Everything that could possibly go wrong did,” said FRC’s rodeo coach, Jesse Segura. “We drew the worst horses and we were just off our game. We just didn’t do what we needed to do.”
Bicyclists of all ages will be treading through Indian Valley for the 15th annual 100 Metric and 100 Mile Bike Rides on June 22.
The Indian Valley Chamber of Commerce traditionally hosted the non-competitive ride during Memorial Day weekend; however, the weather almost always posed a problem. For this reason, a new date has been selected in hopes of providing a better ride experience.

Heat brings an end to spring fishing patterns
“If all politicians fished instead of spoke publicly, we would be at peace with the world.” —Will Rogers
The spring bite has been excellent, but the recent heat wave has put us on notice that spring is about over.
It’s time to adjust to summertime fishing conditions.
Trout are cold-blooded creatures, so they are very sensitive to the temperature of the water around them. They also need plenty of oxygen and colder water generally holds more oxygen than warmer water.
