Page 10, Cloverdale Reveille, December 3, 1997 California Department of Fish & Game announced that an abalo- ne stamp will be required for all divers and rock pickers beginning Jan. 1, 1998. The cost of the new stamp will be $12.60. Fees raised will be used for research and man- agement of abalone habitat plus enhanced enforcement to protect abalone populations. There will also be a moratorium on taking any abalone in waters south of the center of the mouth of San Fran- cisco Bay. Striper fishermen will also have to dig into their wallets for 1998. Fish and Game is bringing back the striper stamp after a three year hiatus with a cost of $3.70. The revenue will be used to produce and in crease the number of striped bass and help restore habitat. Fif- teen percent of the proceeds from his stamp will go to projects that benefit salmon habitat. Both of these stamps are required for all 16 years of age or older. 1998 fishing licenses are now available at your local dealers. The cost of a resident license took a small jump from $26.50 to $27.05. These make a great Christmas present for that outdoorsman on your list. Just make sure you get 1998, not 1997's. Thursday, Dec. 4 is the date for our free seminars in Ukiah on steel- head fishing and duck hunting. Steelhead will be covered from 7 p.m. until 8 p.m. Space is limited so call Longs at 462-9711 and ask for Vance or the manager. Speaking of duck hunting, I tried the Sacramento refuge on Satur- day. The predicted storms never materialized which led to pretty. poor shooting. Three of us man- aged only one pintafl and most others didn't fair much better. The safe (no shootg allowed) ponds were loaded with ducks and we saw a lot of high flying snows. Our current storm front should make conditions perfect for some good shoots this weekend. Rivers are full of color and for the most part unfishable. Before Tuesday's storm they did catch some salmon out of the Smith and it is probably the only river that might be fishable this weekend. You can call Sport Haven Marina 1-8(X)-421-4249 for current condi- tions on the Smith. Lake Mendocino reports early this week were good. Stripers and catfish action was decent. Try anchovies or nightcrawlers for cats in fishing areas where mud is flow- ing into the lake. Broken back rapalas were the ticket for strip- ers. Lake Sonoma has a lot of color and very little fishing activity.
