Difference between baiting and attractants

    Q: What are the differences between baiting and attractants? I know baiting is illegal but was curious about attractants. What qualifies something as an attractant? Can you please define and differentiate? (Josh L.)

    A: There is no difference … bait is an attractant and an attractant is bait. No specific definition is provided in Fish and Game laws for these terms, but the definition of “baited area” in the California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 257.5 is helpful.

All the aspects that make live games more enjoyable to watch were present Friday: a crowd of parents, children, high school alumni and community members were there cheering the team on.

“Fishing puts me in touch with another of nature's species, in beautiful surroundings that are as old as time. That is where I want to be; that is how I'm renewed.” Joan Salvato Wulff

I spent a few days at Lake Almanor this past weekend. Other than a large gathering of firefighters in their camp at the West Almanor rest area, there is very little sign of the Chips Fire that burned all the way from Highway 70 in the Feather River Canyon to Highway 89 at the south end of Lake Almanor.

This is the “mop up” stage of the fire. Mop-up is very hard work. It is also boring, difficult and dirty work. There is no adrenaline — none of the excitement that attracts young men and women to this line of work.
