Fishing in isolated ponds

Question: As our creeks dry up, ponds are formed, with some of them at the road culverts. Is it legal to fish these ponds with a pole, by hand or a dip net?

Greenville’s football team was bumped out of the playoffs by visiting Butte Valley last Friday in a back-and-forth game that ended with a 59-42 loss. The Bulldogs took a lead early on, but Greenville resiliently continued to catch up until close to the end, when Butte Valley pulled too far ahead.

The loss ended the season for the Indians in the first round of the Division VI playoffs. Greenville won seven of its games this season with only four losses.

Everyone expected a good game last Friday as Portola ran out onto Chester’s field, and no one was disappointed. Chester lost the championship to Portola last year, but took its revenge Nov. 8 by beating the Tigers 35-26.

The Tigers brought their signature toughness to the game, but in the end, the Volcanoes’ speed and decisive execution won them the game.

The game was pretty even through the first half, with both teams’ defense controlling the field. Each team managed to score twice in the half, however. Chester came out swinging in the second half and scored one more touchdown than Portola to take the win.
