“Don’t tell fish stories where the people know you; but particularly, don’t tell them where they know the fish.” –Mark Twain

The big news this time of year is always the Hexagenia mayflies. These huge and beautiful yellow mayflies are not found in many part of California. But they are becoming a big attraction in Plumas County.

  They are found in parts of the Midwest in numbers sufficient to inspire a Hitchcock movie when they splatter windshields and crunch underfoot. But it is very different here.

Well, our neighbors began feeding them, and now there are at least two pairs of wild turkeys and 15 chicks between them. I suspect there are more but these were just on our patio last week. And these turkeys can be mean! Recently, one of our neighbors was putting his garbage can out and was attacked by some large male turkeys! He fell down and broke his wrist trying to get away from them.

Feather Publishing


This group of paddlers spends the afternoon playing around out on Lake Almanor last Tuesday. The group rented the kayaks and stand-up paddleboard from Lake Almanor Kayaks, located in Canyon Dam for the past six years. In recent years, paddling has become a popular pastime around Plumas County. People can also rent kayaks from Bucks Lake Marina at Bucks Lake and Graeagle Outpost in Graeagle near the Millpond.
