“A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.”
—Author unknown

It is hard to know how to accurately describe the fishing this time of year.

I tend to be a “glass is half full” sort of person generally. But talking about the fishing this time of year it is hard to ignore the empty half of the glass, and the warm water in the glass.

Golf Results for the week of 7/25/2014

Mt. Huff
Golf Tournament

Under a blazing hot July sun, a large group of golfers turned out for the Mt. Huff Two-Person Best Ball Tournament that was held on July 12. After a 1 p.m. tee-off in 96-degree weather, three teams scored prize money.

First place prize winners were Gary Metzdorf and Tom Rogers, who were smokin’ hot to say the least!

Second place recognition went to the red-hot combo of Mike Ingle and Dick Grace.

In third place came the toasty duo of David Smuts and John Bowen.

Old Beezlebub didn’t show up for the competition because he thought it was too hot!

A cool breeze swept its way up the canyon walls keeping the otherwise stifling July heat at bay for a moment. The whip of a long cast, followed by the distant splash of long-bodied shallow running Rapala was the only other noise accompanying the wind. Twitch … twitch, zzzzzzzzz!!!

Cruising the steep canyon banks of the deep and mysterious Rock Creek Reservoir in the Feather River Canyon is a native river monster. It is an aggressive predator sometimes reaching lengths beyond 3 feet!
