Golf season is underway

Graeagle Meadows Golf

The golf season at Graeagle Meadows Golf Course has finally started.

It’s been a long, cold, snowy, wet winter but true life is starting to emerge in the community of Graeagle. The birds are flying, the squirrels are climbing, the deer are grazing, the coyotes are roaming and real golfers (both men and women) are surfacing from their winter shelters to reunite at Graeagle Meadows Golf Course.

The Spring bite is on

Small streams

Spring runoff is still going full throttle. Some of the smaller streams, however, are starting to show signs of clearing and becoming more fishable. If stream fishing is your thing, focus on the small streams and creeks.

The fish will be conserving energy by staying out of the faster water. Try drifting an egg or a small stonefly imitation through pocket water.

Look for the seams in the current where the fish can stay in slower water but grab their food as it drifts past in the faster current.

That faster current is like a food conveyor belt, but the fish will stay just to the side of it in slower water to conserve energy.

Bloodsucking leeches?

Q. My daughter and I love to swim and play in waters wherever we find them.

While in French Gulch (Shasta County) last year, we decided to play around in Clear Creek. The creek was running pretty high, but when my daughter and I got out we had these black, worm-like things hanging off us.

Our first thought was leeches, which got us out of the water quite quickly! Someone told me they were rock worms and wouldn’t hurt us. We haven’t returned there though because we’re still too scared they were leeches.

Lake fishing coming to life

Trout Stream Opener

The trout stream opener last weekend was great…for kayakers.  The abundant spring runoff made it a tough go for anglers.  Most streams were running very high with low water clarity.

A week ago I listed a few of the streams I thought might be fishable despite the high water levels.  One of those was the North Fork of the Feather River above Chester.
