Fish parasites

Question: I recently caught a number of trout that had what I believe to be parasites called Lernaea attached to them in various places. I know after reading another posting from this column titled “Parasites and Trout” that these “are killed during cooking, effectively eliminating any possibility of infecting humans eating the fish,” but I am considering smoking them. Would these parasites pose any threat if the trout were cold smoked rather than cooked, or would the curing that takes place eliminate any threat as well? Presumably if they were hot smoked there would be no threat because the fish are then cooked. I appreciate any info you can provide. Thanks.

Golf Results for the week of 9/19/2014

LACC Women’s Golf

The President’s Choice for Kathy Roseler’s last game as President of our Lake Almanor Women’s Golf was labeled “Disaster Golf”, a crazy accounting of everything that can go wrong in golf. Players had to keep track of every time a drive from the tee box landed in the rough; each ball that went into the sand; an extra ding for not getting out of the sand on the first try; any three-putts or worse; any four-putts; any out-of-bounds balls—I’m sure you get the idea.

The Quincy Trojans opened their season last Friday night with a home game against Modoc. The Trojans looked hot. They had the speed, they gained the yards and their possession was equal to Modoc’s. Some slip-ups in the third quarter ultimately cost them the game, however.

Modoc, which took down Chester in overtime the week before, beat out the Trojans 26-7. Quincy’s running game looked good, but Modoc completed more passes that gained it major yardage.

Just when the runners thought it couldn’t get any worse, it did. That was the sentiment expressed by several runners at last Saturday’s Lost Sierra endurance race based in Graeagle.

The course, mapped out by the Sierra Buttes Trail Stewardship, was designed for the more experienced runners out there. Runners faced the steep and often brutal climbs Eastern Plumas County has to offer.

It’s the brutality of the course that has made it so popular among athletes around the nation. Teams from Texas and Florida showed up to participate, along with two runners from Australia. Last year, around 120 runners participated. This year, over 200 ran in the race.
