Smoked fish on the menu

Give a man a fish and he has food for a day; teach him how to fish and you can get rid of him for the entire weekend.

I like smoked fish a lot. But smoked fishing is another matter. And right now that is what is on the menu for much of northern Plumas County.

The Chips Fire is on the loose. It started along the Pacific Crest Trail in the Feather River Canyon and is now well-established in the Yellow Creek and North Fork Feather River drainages.

It’s not going away anytime soon. These are steep, rugged and inaccessible canyons and several thousand acres are likely to burn before the fire is controlled.

California Outdoors for the week of 8/8/2012

‘Skeet Fleet’

Question: In Southern California we have taken large boats offshore on the open ocean to shoot clay pigeons with shotguns. We call this “Skeet Fleet.” We use steel shot and do not shoot auto loaders so that we can maintain control of the shells and not have the casings land in the water. I guess the first question is what are the regulations regarding this activity and is there a distance that we need to be offshore? I now live in northern California and am interested in doing the same. Would there be an option of doing the same around Grizzly Island or on San Francisco or Suisun Bay?

The Smackdown Bull Riding Series will once again be making an appearance at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair. Last year’s event was such a draw to the fair that organizers plan to make the event a regular occurrence.

The Smackdown event has 25 riders signed up from the California Cowboy Professional Rodeo Association and the Professional Bull Riding circuit. The show is already full, but those that want to compete can still be put on a waiting list.

A genie’s lamp isn’t essentially necessary to grant wishes. As is evident through the Fish for a Wish Derby, all one needs is a fishing rod.

This year’s eighth annual Fish for a Wish Derby was a huge success, earning a sizable amount for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. The money raised at this year’s tournament will be used to grant the wishes of hopefully up to five children.
