Fishing for Volcano Creek goldenTrout
The California record is nine pounds,eight ounces.
The Volcano Creek Golden is one of the most beautiful fish in the world.
It has a light olive back which suffuses to gold then crimson at the lateral line.
Olive parr marks are evenly spaced along the lateral line and remain visible in all but the oldest.The golden yellow flanks meld to a brilliant orange ventral surface.The operculum are of the same fiery orange as the belly.The orange ventral and the anal fins look as though the tips were dipped in white paint.Bold black spots spatter the dorsum and become profuse at the base of the caudal fin.Most Volcano Creek Goldens spotting is absent or minimal below the lateral line.Volcano Creek Goldens are found in over three hundred sierra waters.and are the goldens typically encountered by high country anglers.

How to Build a Campfire
Ah, the sweet sound of a crackling fire, the gentle orange glow and the woodsy smell of smoke. There's nothing quite like a campfire to make your adventure complete. The following tips will help keep you safe and cozy.

1. Know the Rules
Though it may be tempting to have a campfire where one is not permitted, camping rules and regulations were created for one reason - to keep you safe. Call ahead to make sure that campfires will be permitted where you want to stay. If not, and having a campfire is important to you, you might want to find another park.
Keep in mind that fire rules can change on a daily basis depending on weather conditions. If a park posts "No open fires due to dry or windy conditions," always be sure to comply for the safety of all.
2. Use Designated Fire Pits
If campfires are permitted, use the area that has been designated. These areas were chosen for a good reason (a good wind break, good brush clearance, etc.). If there is not a formal fire area, make sure that your fire ring is surrounded by a circle of rocks, large enough to keep wood and kindling contained and not blowing or tumbling over the sides.
3. Clear Area of All Debris
Make sure there are no extraneous twigs, leaves, paper products or other flammables within several feet of your campfire. And don't forget to look up. Overhanging branches should be avoided.
4. Use the Right Wood
Different kinds of wood are needed to make a great campfire. Start by gathering a supply of all three:
Tinder, or small twigs, wood shavings, dry leaves or grass and when it is raining,you can peel the bark off of a cedar or fir tree trunk,as it is usually dry and will ignite easily. (Never use flammable liquids to start a fire!) Kindling, or small sticks one inch in diameter or less, go on next. Make sure to let your kindling get burning well before you add on the last kind of wood. The last kind? Your Fuel, or larger pieces of dry wood that burn for longer periods of time.
Be sure to stack your wood in separate piles, well away from the fire area. Never pull branches off trees or cut living vegetation.
5. Don't Over-Build.
Campfires can easily get away from you. Keep your campfire well within the borders of the pit, and keep it small to avoid sparking. You can always snuggle up to the fire (or each other) to keep warm.
Bring warm clothes to wear.
6. Be Ready to Put it Out
Be sure to have a bucket of water and a shovel or a fire extinguisher nearby.
7. Be Safe
Enjoy your campfire, but be safe. Make sure an adult is present at all times, and discourage running or horse playing near a campfire.
8. Douse, Dreg,Dig and Feel
Before leaving camp, make sure that your campfire is completely out-and that means doing more than just dousing it with water once or twice. Douse with water, dreg up the fire to uncover any hot spots and douse again. Finish up by turning over the fire debris to make sure everything is cold, and never put fire ash into trash receptacles.
