ton, n»ch. ciht.. Tmi., INDEPENDENT (AM) PRESS-TELEGRAM (PMHC-5 DONNELL CULPEPPER Boat inspection set for Crowley The Sierra Nevada trout season is closer lhan you miyht think, and to most anglers [hat means Crowley Lake, north of Bishop. The scramble for Crowley Lake boats already has been settled for the opening week, so now comes the question of w h a t to do about private boats. ' . There will be only one place where boals may be inspected prior to being trailered to Crowley, and that is Hanson D a m , 11770 Foolhill Blvd., Lakeview Terrace. ' ·· Inspection of private boats will begin at Hanscn Dam on Thursday, April 1,'and continue until May 10. if you have a boat and want it inspected, personnel at Hanson Dam ask that you telephone 899-5752 for an appointment in that April 1-May 10 period. II you don't have your boat inspected at Hansen Dam, you must pass inspection at Crowley Lake prior_.lo putting it in the water. Inspection there can delay your fishing. To pass inspection, each boat must have at least a five-horsepower outboard, measure 12 feel from bow to stmi, be equipped with (wo paddles, a life preserver for each occupant of the lioal, two good anchors ami a (ire extinguisher for any decked-over area. Although all boats have been reserved for the opening weekend, motorboats and boats w i t h o u t motors may lie reserved for other weekends and weekdays by calling -185-5515. If you want olher i n f o r m a t i o n on Crowley Lake, call the Camping Section (485-4853). ; A FRIEND STOPPED ME RECENTLY and said: "You're just the man I'm looking for. I know t h a t you can tell me 'Where the Hell is Bullhead City?' " That sign is appearing more and more on automobile bumper stickers. I don't know who started the bumper-slicker advertising scheme for Bullhead City, but it is a fast- growing town in Arizona just south of Davis Dam. Furthermore, il is on the Colorado River, which forms the natural boundary line between Arizona on the eiisl and California and Nevada on (he west. The town is far from a sleepy little retirement village, but there are many retirees in [he town and also in Mohavc Valley. '. There are modern accommodations in plush motels, excellent public campgrounds, several restaurants and lilckle shops that cater to fishermen. Also, there arc Ihrec gambling establishments across the river in Nevada thai offer free ferry service from Bullhead City just in case you arc inclined to-try Ihc slots and the crap tables. An olcltime fishing buddy of mine, George Lobaugh, Southern California editor for Fishing and Hunting jYews, and his wife, Ingrid, have retired and moved from their Baysidc Village home to Bullhead City, and George immediately had become involved with the Bullhead City, Mohavc Valley, Davis Dam Chamber of Commerce Merchants' Striper Fishing Derby, which begins April 1. GEORGE WHITES THAT AWARDS of $3,500 will go lo-those anglers catching the three heaviest striped bass in two divisions. Cash prizes of 51,000, $500 and $250 will be awarded to local residents of the area who live within 75 miles of Davis Dam. Similar awards will he made 1 lo residents of any other areas f a r t h e r than 75 miles from the d a m . It's (he richest derby on Ihc Colorado River for slriped bass fishing. Fish musl be caught between Davis Dam and the Topock area. Sportsman's One Stop and Smitty's R a i l and Tackle in Bullhead City will be (he official weigh-in stations. It is well to remember that the upper part of Ihc Colorado River at Bullhead City actually is a continuation of Lake llavasu, which has a large population of stripers that move up (lie river toward Davis Dam for spawning. Although stripers arc caught at all limes of [he year, July is usually the best month, for that is the lime when the spawning lakes place. Pownriver at Parker, Jeanne Branson, of Branson's Resorts in P a r k e r and Great Bear I«ikc in northern Canada, is hosting a benefit d i n n e r next S a t u r d a y night for "ihe Parker Community Hospital, which urgently needs additional equipment. ll will IK a wild game dinner of caribou, moose, elk. A r c t i c char, lake trout and grayling, all imporluil from Canada, plus tropical fish from Baja California. If you are interested'in that type of dinner and benefit, call iG02fC67-33-16 for more information. .
