The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is reminding anglers of the fishing regulations for the 2013 salmon season on the Feather River.The regulations went into effect Tuesday, July 16. The California Fish and Game Commission adopts yearly regulations to help ensure the health of fish populations and give anglers an opportunity to enjoy fishing.
It’s time again that outdoor paddling enthusiasts look forward to all year in Plumas County. Pacific Gas and Electric Co. plans to increase flow releases on the North Fork Feather River this weekend for recreational purposes.
Caution is necessary for those in the water, as the water level will sporadically rise and fiercer rapids will engulf the river. For the experienced kayaker or rafter, however, this is heaven.
GPS collars on dogs
Question: My dog is often hard to follow when we’re hiking through heavy cover. Is it legal to use GPS tracking devices on dogs while hunting?
Answer: GPS collars may be used on dogs only when bird hunting but are prohibited when hunting mammals. Electronic dog retrieval collars employing the use of global positioning system equipment (devices that utilize satellite transmissions) are prohibited on dogs used for the pursuit/take of mammals (California Code of Regulations Title 14, section 265(d)(2)).

The Gansner Park softball field was packed with players who signed up to help support their community at the Scotty Schwartz Co-Ed Softball Tournament last Friday and Saturday.
The tournament was traditionally held over one day, but higher than average sign-up numbers stretched the tournament into two days this year. On Saturday, a food and beverage station was set up to satisfy hungry and thirsty players.
