Fishing Report for the week of 5/14/2014

A bad day of fishing is better than a good day of work.  ~Author Unknown

I recently received an email from a big box sporting goods store with a subject line that read “Spend more time fishing.” What angler is not going to open that email?

I took the bait and opened the email.

The email contained fishing ads and the headliner at the top of the page was an ad for a new boat.

My first thought was shame on them for such a shameless ploy. But then as I thought more about it I saw the genius in their ad.

Can gifted fish get you a ticket?

Question: My husband and some friends and I were fishing in the Eastern Sierras the second day of the trout opener and we all caught some nice fish. As we were leaving the lake to return to our car, one of our friends who had a long drive ahead didn’t want to keep his fish and offered them to us. We already had our limits but he said, “You can have two limits in your possession so just say you caught mine yesterday.” We took the fish but didn’t feel right about it. Was this actually okay?

Fin-clips

Question: With trout season opening soon, I was thinking about how several years ago I ran across a way to identify what strain a Lake Crowley trout was based on which fins were clipped. Identify as follows: adipose only — Eagle Lake strain; adipose and left ventral — Kamloops (from Junction Reservoir); adipose and right ventral — Coleman; and ventral only — Kamloops or Coleman. No fin clips would indicate a natural spawn and not from a hatchery.

And, what hatchery would these plants have come from? Possibly Hot Creek or maybe Fish Springs? I have talked to the driver planting catchables in Silver Lake and learned those plants came from the Fish Springs hatchery. Thanks for any info you can provide.

Feather River College’s rodeo program is preparing for its third annual Rough Stock Rodeo Clinic, to be held at FRC’s rodeo arena April 21 – 22. This is the second year FRC will open the clinic to the public, allowing anyone interested in rodeo to learn all about it up close and personal.

The clinic will focus on the rough-stock portion of rodeos: namely bareback and saddle bronc riding and bull riding. One of the advantages of the clinic is the more-than-qualified instruction participants will receive. More than 15 qualifiers from the National Finals Rodeo will be present to instruct and ensure a safe area.
