The following letter pertaining to the fishing for salmon and steelhead trout has just been received from State Game Warden Burghdorff by District Game Warden P. H. Dailey:

“This department has interpreted the law to mean that it is legal to take salmon trout over ten inches in length during December, January, February and March. Further salmon trout are classified as anadromous trout that have returned to the sea.

This ruling is in effect in game district No. 1, and we therefore hold under this ruling that steelhead trout and salmon trout are one and the same in so far as this act is concerned, and it is, therefore, legal to take steelhead trout over 10 inches in length during the months of December, January, February and March.”

Mrs. M. C. Womack arrived home Sunday evening from a two weeks visit at Sacramento with her son Roy P., who was married there last week, and with his bride will leave soon for New York City to educate himself as a lawyer. Mrs. Womack would have remained longer at Sacramento but she was too worried over her husband. Mike is so careless and will go out without his overshoes on.
