Lake Davis

As of June 11, the fishing at lake Davis has been great for trolling. The best thing to use is still the #2 sockeye slammer, fire tiger. The depth that is working best is 8-12 ft. The best thing to use for shore fishing is worms and rainbow powerbait. Flyfishing has had its rewards with the J Fair olive wiggly tail. The average size is 14-15 in with an occasional 18-20 incher. The lake temp is at 59 degrees and is at 68 percent. Camp 5 has had a couple of bears hanging around so be careful.

Frenchman Lake
Weather is great and so is the fishing. A group from Sacramento caught their limit of rainbow trout using worms near Big Cove. Conner Gonzales of Reno, Nev., caught his limit at Crystal Point on worms. A pair of locals were stream fishing in Beckwourth and caught a four pound brown trout.

Summer has finally made it. Come and join the fun. Call ahead for updates 993-4683.

Lake Almanor

For bank fishing, try fishing the jetties in Prattville and the usual Hamilton Branch with SW10 Kastmasters or nightcrawlers and power bait. Crickets are working also catching browns and rainbows of decent size. Also, the dam might be a good spot.

For boat fishing, there are good reports from trollers taking fish with red/gold speedy shiners and various Rapalas. Add carp spit or trophy trout and go down 15 to 30 feet along the east or west shores for good size browns and rainbows. There are many excellent reports by the dam for salmon with anchovy tails with size 1 or 2 octopus hook a few cranks off the bottom. Smallmouth should start picking up as the weather improves at the points and dropoffs all around the lake with various rubber worms. Crickets on a size 10 baitholder with 3/0 split shot 12 inches from your hook.

For fly fishing, at Hamilton Branch use woolly buggers, at Almanor pond smelt and caddis, at Deer Creek try Cooper Johns, at Butt Lake streamer patterns and on Warner, Feather River use stoneflies.

On the rivers and streams try crickets, salmon eggs, worms and a panther martin.

For more information call Roger Keeling 284-6429.

Summer Solstice Century - "just as challenging as the Death Ride"


Shannon Morrow

Sports Editor

The Summer Solstice Century is an epic bicycle ride held in Quincy each summer that features a grueling 137-mile loop and 13,400 vertical feet of climbing.

While most recreational cyclists wouldn't want to attempt such a ride, for the armies of intrepid cyclists who love a big challenge, the Summer Solstice offers a delightfully painful test of endurance and willpower.

A very similar ride is the Death Ride, held just south of Lake Tahoe two weeks after the Summer Solstice Century.

Tour de Manure bicycle ride set for June 12


Last year’s inaugural Tour de Manure metric century in Sierra Valley went so well the Sierraville Fire and Rescue Department is doing it again.

“This year some things are changing, but most things are staying the same,” said Doug Read, race co-coordinator. “It’s still a bunch of firefighters who don’t ride bicycles putting on a fun event for people who do ride. But we have adjusted a few tour features in response to comments from last year. Most important, we’ll have more of the mad-bull T-shirts to sell. Also, we’ve added a hill for people who say the course wasn’t tough enough.”
