Fresno Bee Fishing Report | Oct. 17, 2017 | The Fresno Bee

Only for runners or good mountain bikers September, by mystang52 I rode the entire length from Nyack to the end at Haverstraw on my hybrid bike. It became a quixotic quest once I started, but frankly it was not fun, and maybe dangerous. A couple of steep hills, but numerous other rolling hills. On the downhills easy to pick up speed too dangerous for the crushed gravel surface. I never spun out or fell, but I can see that one could easily do so. This was a scenic trail, but I was too busy white-knuckling to have the time ti take in the view! However, with a mountain bike it is probably a decent challenging ride.

A few crappie are coming from the dirt canals around Firebaugh. Most anglers release the large bass, and the action is just starting to heat up as the temperatures cool. Fishermen are scoring largemouth bass to 3. There are bass holding along the shorelines, but the better cut is found in deeper water.

Utter darkness is as much a part of the scenery along the Elroy-Sparta State Trail as the views of the rolling hills and farmland. That’s because visitors pass through three hand-dug railroad tunnels on their mile journey from Sparta to Elroy on what is widely acknowledged to be the oldest rail-trail conversion in the United States.

Pre-game buildup[ edit ] During the summer preceding the season, Oklahoma was hyped to be a top 5 team and national title contender. They initially were the favorite to win the Big 12 South. The Sooners opened their season 3—2 with a controversial loss to Oregon and a loss to Texas. The Sooners also lost their Heisman -hopeful running back Adrian Peterson during their sixth game to a broken collar bone. Many had written the Sooners off at this point. However, the Sooners won their next seven games while Texas lost their last two and the Sooners became the outright winners of the Big 12 South and faced the Big 12 North winner, Nebraska , in the Big 12 Championship Game.

They won that game 21—7 and were given an automatic berth to represent the Big 12 in the Fiesta Bowl. Boise State was the champion of the Western Athletic Conference. The new stadium is state-of-the-art with an inclined retractable roof and fully retractable natural grass playing surface. The capacity of the new stadium is 63, , although for this game and the BCS National Championship Game, extra seats were added in the south end of the stadium to increase capacity to about 70, Anthony Montgomery kick good 9:

We’ll have to wait until Jan. Between now and then, we’ll get to see 38 bowl games, starting with five on Saturday. Here’s everything you need to know about this season’s bowl lineup: ET Why to watch: It’s the first bowl game of the year, and the game will feature two of the country’s more underrated quarterbacks:

Welcome! Located in beautiful Fresno, California, Three Palms RV Park is a wonderful family-oriented place to live. With all the amenities you would expect of an upscale RV Park, you will enjoy free Wi-Fi, a sparkling clean pool, laundry, showers with full hookup sites.

Lures such as jerkbaits, flukes, and tubes are also effective. The popularity of the California Aqueduct has led to increased numbers of anglers, and in order to maintain the right to continue to fish along these public areas, fishermen are encouraged to take out all trash and debris when departing. Fishing will run until Guests with their own poles are encouraged to bring them; the park staff will hand out loaner poles, but supplies are limited. Individuals 16 or older must have a valid fishing license.

Eastman has risen to 76 percent capacity. The lake rose from 28 percent capacity to 40 percent and the water is dirty. Once it clears, the bass bite should be outstanding. Army Corps of Engineers, Hensley Lake Hidden Dam Lake Don Pedro Bass 2 Trout 2 Kokanee 1 King salmon 1 Crappie 2 Don Pedro Reservoir received a massive inflow of water and debris from the Tuolumne River during the storms of the past week, and there were several nervous moments when the possibility of the small Moccasin impoundment above the main reservoir failing.

The water is moving through the system, and the bait is starting to accumulate near the headgates. In the southern aqueduct in Kern County, striped bass action is decent with tube baits, jumbo minnows, blood worms or sardines with catfish on jumbo minnows, chicken livers or anchovies. The popularity of the aqueduct led to increased numbers of anglers and in order to maintain access fishermen are encouraged to take out all trash and other debris when departing.

For the big rainbow trout-patterned swimbaits such as Huddlestons or River2Sea Swavers, there is a bite very early in the morning prior to the sun rising and also at dusk, but you have to put in your time for the opportunity for a single quality fish.

A year-old woman has been charged over the strawberry needle crisis and allegedly wanted to bring farmers down.

Four of us rode July 21, Saturday and 2 trees were down between Wilton and Elroy. We had to lift our bikes over and then climb over a large tree blocking the path. Another tree was down but you could get around it by going in the ditch. People with bike trailers for children would not be able to pass. Other areas had a lot of mud on the trail.

Again, I think if the surface in the tunnels was better maintained it would be safe to ride through. Very cool trail July, by irmaiden I just spent the last 2 days riding this trail.

Heavy-duty sling type boom tow truck Towing a wrecked truck Towing of cars and trucks is a unique form, with an industry dedicated to it. Specialized “tow truck” vehicle types are most often used. Some of these are flatbed, with hydraulic tilting beds and winches and dollies to position the car behind the bed and pull it up onto the bed.

Others have a specialized boom hitch instead of a flatbed, which will lift one end of the car and allow it to ride on its remaining tires; they otherwise have similar equipment to the flatbeds and position and perform much like them.

In need of repair! August, by jdunlop58 It has been a couple of years since I hit this trail with my road bike and I was pretty amazed and a little disappointed at the lack of maintenance. It is a beautiful trail with fairly easy grades and nice shade. The issue is the heaving of asphalt which on a road bike is jarring, to the point of being dangerous if you are in the shade and don’t see it coming. On a fat tire bike, not so much.

Again, it could be a great trail, but the state or whoever is responsible needs to spend a dime, i.

Heavy-duty sling type boom tow truck Towing a wrecked truck Towing of cars and trucks is a unique form, with an industry dedicated to it. Specialized “tow truck” vehicle types are most often used. Some of these are flatbed, with hydraulic tilting beds and winches and dollies to position the car behind the bed and pull it up onto the bed.

Others have a specialized boom hitch instead of a flatbed, which will lift one end of the car and allow it to ride on its remaining tires; they otherwise have similar equipment to the flatbeds and position and perform much like them. In other cases, a specialized vehicle dolly can be attached to a standard vehicle hitch; for example, some moving vehicle rental companies, such as U-Haul, will rent these dollies for one-way transport of cars. Larger versions, with a long, weighted body and heavier duty engines, transmissions, and tow hooks, may be used for towing of disabled buses, truck tractors, or large trucks.

The artificial sizing and weighting must be designed to withstand the greater weight of the towed vehicle, which might otherwise tip the tow truck back. When many cars are to be transported, rather than using a specialized vehicle, a specialized trailer may be used instead, attached to a standard tractor truck or other large vehicle. These “motor carriers” often bring cars from factories to dealers. Their beds, on each level, may have channels or tracks to guide loading and further maintain transport stability.

Vehicle towing may be performed for the following reasons: Some tow services communicate with drivers using wireless telephone equipment. In others, the dispatching center contacts an available tow truck driver via mobile radio or by sending a text message using a mobile data terminal. Recent technology includes the use of GPS and on board wireless equipment to dispatch drivers via an LCD screen receiver.

Along those lines, my IM and texts messages have been blowing up since we pulled out of the Kern County Raceway Park parking lot. So I only have to do this once, here is a breakdown of the possibilities: Entering the season finale at the Stockton Dirt Track, Hirst owns a narrow point lead over Golobic. Keep in mind that there are just two ways to earn points in the King of the West-NARC series … qualifying and the main event.

The top qualifier earns four points, dropping by one for the four fastest cars. The series also pays a premium for winning. For example, parking it in victory lane is worth 42 points. Second place is worth 39, but it drops by one point per position from that point on. Now … as a public service announcement, we are going to have some fun and share seven possible scenarios with you.

Kyle jumps out of his truck and sets quick time running around the parking lot, hooping and hollering for a few minutes.
