“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.”

—John Buchan

Mid-July is a time of transition on most local waters. The best of the insect hatches will be winding down soon and warming water has the trout searching for cooler locations.

Limits from different waters

Question: I enjoy your weekly newspaper columns and now I have a question that I hope you can answer. When fishing for striped bass at a local lake where there is a 10-fish limit with no size restriction, what happens if on the way home I stop at the Delta to fish for catfish and a wildlife officer checks me out and I have 10 striped bass already? How do I prove I caught them at, say, New Hogan Lake several miles away and not the Delta? Another thing, if I catch eight striped bass at the lake, can I still catch two more out of the Delta? Thanks for your consideration. You keep writing them and I’ll keep reading them!

Nesting mallards

Question: We have a pair of mallard ducks that seems to have taken up residency in our backyard pool and have laid eggs in the surrounding plants. I am afraid that if they hatch they will end up dead because of all the meat-eating birds in the area. Why are they doing this? If I can get them to leave, where will they fly off to? I can’t seem to find any help in the town that I live in (Modesto). I read your piece in the Modesto Bee and wondered if you had any suggestions of what I could do.

Guard/forward Justus Eaglesmith was named 2013-2014 Pioneer-Mountain League most valuable player. Greenville, which lost lead-scorer Walker Meyers to injury last season, relied upon the 5 foot, 9 inch freshman to finish as co-champions of the league.

Justus averaged 12.8 points and 10.8 rebounds each game. He also led the team in steals, assists, and blocked shots.

“Justus displayed remarkable leadership and floor presence. At times, it was difficult to remember he was only a freshman,” said Greenville coach Russ Crouch. “He is a dean’s-list student and a fine young gentleman off court, as well.”
