“I’ve gone fishing thousands of times in my life, and I have never once felt unlucky or poorly paid for those hours on the water.”

—William Tapply

 

Lake Almanor

Surface water temperatures had been moving into the high 60s, but have now dropped a bit with the recent cool and windy weather. This will keep the fish scattered throughout the lake just a bit longer.

Fishing pressure is light. Strong winds this past weekend probably had a lot to do with that. Scattered fish coupled with very abundant feed, mostly insects, have anglers working a little longer for their catch.

Unclaimed tags

Question: Last year I drew an Area 6 antelope tag. While in camp I was talking with a fellow hunter who told me he drew a tag six years ago. He also told me he had a tag for this year and showed me an antelope he had shot that day. I told him I was surprised at his good luck in drawing so soon. He responded by saying he was just as surprised when he received a telephone call from the Department of Fish and Game (DFG) offering him an unclaimed tag. I am wondering what becomes of unclaimed tags. I heard that years ago there was a standby list for unclaimed tags, but thought that was done away with long ago.

The Fourth of July celebration is right around the corner and it is a popular time for boaters to get out and enjoy being on the water with family and friends. But with approximately 500 people drowning each year from recreational boating accidents, it is imperative to always boat responsibly, including wearing a life jacket, being alert and aware while on the water and obeying navigation rules.

The National Safe Boating Council (safeboatingcouncil.org) is encouraging all boaters to take the “Safe Summer Pledge” this July 4. The pledge allows boaters to share with their family and friends their dedication to boat safety and wearing a life jacket each and every time they are on the water. The pledge can be signed and shared via social networks by visiting safeboatingcampaign.com/camp-pledge.htm.

“And finally, I fish not because I regard fishing as being terribly important, but because I suspect that so many of the other concerns of men are equally unimportant, and not nearly so much fun.”

—John Volker

We have seen some late spring weather disturbances this year that have prolonged the spring fishing patterns. That has come to an end now that warm summer weather has settled in.

The surface water temperatures in many local lakes has crept up into the 60s. This will have the fish moving towards cooler water.

It’s time to start changing lake fishing strategies. Fish deeper and look for springs and cold water inlets.
