National Park Admission Fees Set for An Increase

The Gilmer Free Press

WASHINGTON, DC — Be prepared to pay a bit more if you’re headed to some national parks and recreation areas this summer.

After a six-year moratorium, the federal government is increasing the price of admission at some of its public lands and raising the fees charged for camping, boating, cave tours and other activities. The National Park Service says the money expected to be raised is just a fraction of the $11.5 billion needed to repair and maintain roads, trails and park buildings.

Some members of Congress have expressed concern about the fee increases, but National Park Service Director Jonathan Jarvis said at a March congressional hearing that visitors are still getting an incredible deal when compared to other recreational pursuits.

“We cannot greet them with failing facilities,” Jarvis said of the 295 million people expected to visit National Park Service properties, which also include sites like the Lincoln Memorial.

Fees have increased in eight parks, including Yosemite, so far and are likely to rise in several dozen more parks in the coming months.

Each park determines how much to charge visitors after public input and approval from Washington. Jarvis told park superintendents last September to begin the public outreach that must accompany fee increases. The service went to Facebook as part of its efforts to gauge the prospect of higher fees at Yosemite National Park.

“Keep in mind — this belongs to the people, and it shouldn’t be priced out of the reach of the average person,” wrote Gayle Partmann of Rohnert Park, California. Partmann and her family spent several summer vacations at Yosemite when she was growing up.

“I’d rather pay money to get into Yosemite than any theme park I’ve been to,” wrote William Sanger of Berwick, Maine, who visited the park in October.

Only about a third of the 400-plus properties within the National Park Service system charge an entrance fee. Even in those places that do charge a fee, many visitors are exempted. For example, federal law requires parks to issue free passes for the disabled and to provide the elderly with the option of buying a lifetime pass for just $10.

Families can also buy an $80 annual pass that allows them to go to as many national parks as they desire, and that price will remain the same.

By comparison, the cost of going to Disneyland for a day is a minimum of $99 for one person age 10 and over.

Fees vary from park to park. At Yosemite National Park, the country’s third-busiest national park last year, the annual pass increased from $40 to $60.

Nick Haris, a motorcyclist who lives about two hours from Yosemite and travels there regularly, said the price increases are unlikely to deter him from coming back, but he’s heard grumbling from other motorcyclists.

Haris said area motorcyclists generally just want to ensure they’re not singled out for steeper increases than other park visitors. The National Park Service helped alleviate some of those concerns by phasing in the increase and not charging as much as originally proposed. The rate per motorcycle has risen from $10 to $15 this year and will jump to $20 next year.

“I think it’s worth it,” Haris said.

Jarvis said the National Park Service collects about $180 million annually through fees and had hoped to raise $45 million more through all the fee increases. But officials have delayed or rescinded some proposed increases based on opposition from local residents and lawmakers.

The agency’s needs are numerous. Half of all paved roads in the national park system have been designated as in fair to poor condition. More than two dozen bridges need repair, as do more than one-third of the hiking trails — some 6,700 miles, according to the agency.

Some Republican lawmakers have questioned the scale of the pending fee increases. Republican Rep. Doug LaMalfa, whose Northern California district includes Lassen Volcanic National Park, said the cost of “just driving through the park” is possibly jumping from $10 to $25 per vehicle, while hikers and bikers would see fees go up from $5 to $12 a person, and motorcyclists could see an increase from $5 to $20.

He said a modest increase, perhaps 25%, could be understandable. But going beyond that “really starts making a difference in people’s pocketbooks,” LaMalfa said.

Fairy Diddles Are Nocturnal, But Common

Recently the temperature reached 60 degrees, so I headed outside and checked some of my nest boxes. I really didn’t expect to find any active nests just yet, but thought some bluebirds, chickadees or Carolina wrens might have begun gathering nesting material. No such luck, but in another week nesting will surely have begun.

The contents of one box, however, quickened my pulse. Located on the edge of a woodlot, finely chewed plant material surrounded by an envelope of large intact leaves jammed the box. I gently poked the nest until I saw some movement. Suddenly two big black eyes stared back at me. It was a flying squirrel.

After we checked each other out for a few seconds, she jumped from the box and sailed to the base of a nearby tree. She instantly scurried to the far side of the trunk to stay out of sight. We played hide-and-seek while I tried to get a better look at her. But each time I peeked around the trunk, she managed to keep the trunk between her and me. Finally, after several minutes, she leapt onto a larger tree trunk, and I got a chance to admire her.

Back at the box, I found four naked and helpless pups. I estimated them to be three or four days old. Given the flying squirrel’s 40-day gestation period, this female had bred in early to mid February.

At about four weeks of age, the pups will be fully furred. At seven weeks, they will be adult-sized — ten inches long including a flat four-inch tail and about three ounces — and ready to leave the nest. The first brood stays with mom until she bears a second litter in July or August.

Southern flying squirrels (Glaucomys volans) inhabit most deciduous and mixed deciduous/coniferous woods east of the Great Plains and are quite common. If a woodlot has oaks, beeches, hickories and/or walnut trees, it is sure to have flying squirrels.

Because flying squirrels are strictly nocturnal, they’re seldom seen. An evening in any woodlot, especially one dominated by nut trees, is one way to remedy this.

You might hear the sound of teeth gnawing nuts overhead. Or perhaps you’ll catch flashes of white gliding from tree to tree. This is best done on a moonlit night. As a flying squirrel twists and turns through the forest’s obstacle course of outstretched branches, its white belly stands out in the moonlight. When it lands, note how it disappears to the back of the tree, a habit that no doubt pays off when it crosses paths with a hungry owl.

A flying squirrel’s diet is as varied as the seasons. In February, a flying squirrel might take peanuts, corn or sunflower seeds from a bird feeder, eat swollen buds or slice into the bark of a sugar maple and lap up the sap that flows. In May, it switches to insects, and occasionally raids bird nests for a meal of fresh eggs or nestlings. In August, mushrooms, fruits, berries and mice are abundant and irresistible. And in October, flying squirrels gather and store bushels of acorns, beechnuts, walnuts and hickory nuts to get them through the coming winter. Fairy diddles, as flying squirrels are sometimes called, eat whatever the forest provides. (In some parts, red squirrels are also called fairy diddles.)

By day, flying squirrels sleep in den trees or nest boxes, often in groups of four to 12 individuals during the winter. Flying squirrels do not hibernate; they huddle together in small groups to stay warm.

One final note: Flying squirrels do not fly. They glide. Courtesy of a flap of skin that runs from wrist to ankle on each side of the body, they sail from tree to tree. Upon takeoff, this skin balloons and permits a controlled glide. The flat tail serves as a rudder to guide the “flight.” Most flights are short, 30 to 40 feet, but biologists have observed trips as long as 300 feet.

Last Year     198,200     76,700         4,700        279,600

Compared to last week, feeder cattle and calves sold mostly steady to 5.00 higher with a majority of sales ranging from 2.00-5.00 higher.

As a whole, receipts are currently made up of growing lot yearlings and fall born calves both carrying considerable flesh, but there seems to be plenty of buyers eagerly bidding on all classes.

True grass ready stocker cattle still bring top billing.

The last three weeks, feedlots have traded fat cattle higher, despite poor processing margins.

Demand and attitudes have come out from under a cloud that had plagued them since the first of the year.

The CME cattle complex continues to see increasing open interest in positions, but market behavior is nothing new as CME cattle futures can be leery about keeping distance between the futures and the cash market.

Spring beef demand, fed and feeder cattle availability, packer margins and slaughter increases will be key market factors. 

There are market watchers who feel there is still some fuel left in these rockets with available supplies of feeders eventually tightening and plenty of on the farm feed.

At the Bassett, NE, Livestock Auction on Wednesday sold consignments and strings of reputation Sandhill cattle with near 270 head of steers averaging 730 lbs. sold with a weighted average price of 246.91 and 400 head of their bigger brothers averaging 760 lbs. sold with a weighted average price of 237.09.

USDA’s Grain Stocks and Prospective Plantings reports were released on Tuesday and pointed to larger than expected corn supplies.

USDA’s estimate of 89.2 million acres of corn to be planted would be 1.5% lower than one year ago, but still 460,000 acres more than analysts expected.

March 01 corn stocks came in at 7.740 billion bushels which was 11% higher than a year ago and over 130 million more than analysts had expected.

Boxed beef values continue to grind higher with positive news with warming weather helping sales and the need to restock inventories for May.

Choice product closed on Friday at 255.57 with feedlot trade in Kansas 2.00 higher at 167.00 and Nebraska live sales 2.00-2.50 higher from 167.00-169.00.

Auction volume included 55% weighing over 600 lbs. and 41% heifers.

Fishing Report - 04.03.15

The Gilmer Free Press

BEECH FORK
Anglers should call the Beech Fork Corps of Engineers office at 304.525.4831 and go to www.lrh-wc.usace.army.mil/wc/bbfns.htm  for information and current lake levels.  No current fishing reports, the lake is at summer pool almost due to recent rains.


BLUESTONE
Spring is slowly approaching and some fish species are preparing to spawn as the water warms in the next few weeks.  Crappie will be showing up on brush piles, flooded timber or downed trees where they will spawn.  They will hit small minnows or doll flies.  Bass may be caught off rocky points and around downed trees using live bait and artificials such as spinnerbaits and plastic worms.  Anglers should look for points that have some cover such as stumps, logs, or weed beds.  Try slow rolling a spinnerbait, bumping off the stumps.  Some hybrid striped bass may be caught using large minnows.  Anglers should try spots such as the mouth of Indian Creek or up the Bluestone Arm as these fish, even though mostly infertile, still make mock spawning runs upstream.  Smallmouth bass are being caught in the tailwaters.  Successful anglers are using tube jigs in pumpkinseed or motor oil colors.  Anglers should be careful wading and wear your personal flotation devices.


BURNSVILLE
The lake is at winter pool.  Bass are in about 10-12 feet of water.  Crappie and bluegill are also hitting on jigs and live minnows.  The tailwaters were stocked with trout February 11. For more information call Corps of Engineers at 304.853.2398 and go to www.lrh-wc.usace.army.mil/wc/busns.htm.


EAST LYNN
For information on current lake levels call the Corps of Engineers recorded message at 304.849.9861 and go to www.lrh-wc.usace.army.mil/wc/eltns.htm . No current fishing reports, the lake is at summer pool almost due to recent rain.


R.D. BAILEY
With the waters warming up, fish are becoming more and more active as they feed in preparation for the upcoming spawning.  Crappie are congregating near the habitats where they spawn such as around standing timber and brush piles and they will hit small minnows.  For artificials, use doll flies in white and yellow.  Spotted bass are hitting plastic jigs in crawfish colors.  The spotted bass will be found along the rocky drops with points with downed trees another good spot to try.  Hybrid striped bass will be making a mock spawning run up stream in April and May so anglers may want to concentrate their efforts in the upper lake.  The trout stocked in the tailwaters are providing good fishing.  Best baits are corn, salmon eggs, and small jigs.


STONECOAL LAKE
The lake is at normal pool and frozen in places.  Fishing has been challenging with the cold and ice.  Bass are in about 10-12 feet of water.  Crappie and bluegill are also hitting on jigs and live minnows.  A few walleye have also been in about 10-15 feet of water.


STONEWALL JACKSON
The lake is at winter pool.  Bass are in about 10-12 feet of water.  Crappie and bluegill are also hitting on jigs and live minnows.  The tailwaters were stocked with trout February 11.  Before heading to the lake please call Corps of Engineers at 304.269.7463.


SUMMERSVILLE
The lake is at winter pool.  Bass are in about 10-12 feet of water.  Crappie and bluegill are also hitting on jigs and live minnows.  Walleye are being caught off rocky points in about 10-15 feet of water.  Try minnows and small crank baits.  The tailwaters were stocked with trout February 04.  For more information contact the Corps of Engineers at 304.872.3412 and go to www.lrh-wc.usace.army.mil/wc/suens.htm.


SUTTON
The lake is at winter pool.  Bass are in about 10-12 feet of water.  Crappie and bluegill are also hitting on jigs and live minnows.  The tailwaters were stocked with trout February 11.  Before heading to the lake please call Corps of Engineers at 304.765.2705 and go to www.lrh-wc.usace.army.mil/wc/suens.htm.


TYGART LAKE
The lake is 20 feet below summer pool level and is expected to slowly raise over the next several days.  Walleye are near the end of spawning and will move into shallow water to feed or spawn at dusk.  Some walleye will also move up into river at the head of the lake to spawn.  Try casting large Rapalas along the shoreline about an hour before and after sunset.  Drive into Cove Run and fish the river from the shore.


Walleye have been moving through the dam during the recent high water discharges.  There are also lots of trout in the tailwater.  Walleye fishing is best during higher flows (1,500 to 5,000 cubic feet per second) and trout fishing is best at low flows (less than 1,000 cubic feet per second).  Call the Corps of Engineers telephone hotline at 304.265.5953 for daily lake and tailwater conditions.

River flows have receded over the past couple of weeks.  Walleye and sauger have moved out of the mouths of tributaries and into tailwater areas.  Minnows are the best bet but spoons have also been productive.  Other good spots at this time of year are heated discharges at power plants.  One hour before and after sunset is the best time for sauger and walleye.  Hybrid striped bass will congregate in these areas.


MONONGAHELA RIVER
Walleye and sauger are now nearing the end of spawning.  A good pattern now is to fish for sauger and walleye an hour before and after sunset, especially in the tailwater areas below the lock and dams.  Sauger and walleye usually begin feeding at dusk in the tailwaters but will be active during the day when the water is turbid.  Jigs with minnows are always good baits but 3-inch plastic grubs will also be productive.


CHEAT LAKE
Channel catfish can be caught at the Cheat Lake Park.  Walleye stockings from recent years have been successful and are providing a decent fishery.  Yellow perch are plentiful and the I-68 area is well known for holding yellow perch

The tailwater fishing pier can be very good for walleye and sauger.  The pier is located entirely in West Virginia about 25 minutes from Morgantown.  Take U.S. Rt. 119 from Morgantown to Point Marion, PA.  Turn right after crossing the Cheat River and proceed 4 miles to Cheat Dam.


EASTERN PANHANDLE

South Branch and Cacapon Rivers
Water levels throughout the area have dropped over the past week and are slightly below normal flow for this time of year.  Water temperatures are in the upper 40’s at most locations and the water is clear.  Nearly all streams are in great fishing condition.  Anglers are catching smallmouth bass and the bass fishing will keep getting better as fish feed in preparation for spawning.  The spring trout stocking season is underway and many streams are receiving weekly trout stockings.


Shenandoah River
Flows in the Shenandoah River are near normal flow for this time of year.  Smallmouth bass are biting and fishing plastics near the head of pools around the bedrock ledges and in eddies is always a good strategy.


North Branch River
Flows in the North Branch are currently 300 cfs and projected to remain at that level for the next couple days.  There should be some great trout fishing opportunities by the weekend.  The first white whitewater event on the North Branch is scheduled for April 11 and 12.  Check the Corp or Engineers webpage for specifics or schedule changes. 


Small Impoundments
Most small impoundments are in great fishing condition and some are receiving spring trout stockings.  Check the 2015 fishing regulations to see if your favorite impoundment is on the trout stocking schedule.


Jennings Randolph Lake
There has been no recent reports of angler success at Jennings Randolph Lake.  Smallmouth bass will soon be biting especially on slow moving plastics.  The West Virginia boat launch is scheduled to open for the season on Wednesday April 01.  The WV launch is free and a $5 per day fee is collected for the Maryland Ramp. Jennings Randolph Lake has a dedicated phone line for up-to-date recreational information 304.355.2890.


Mt. Storm Lake
Anglers at Mount Storm Lake should target striped bass, black bass, and walleye.  Fish can be caught throughout the lake but many anglers do well fishing with chicken livers near the discharges.


CENTRAL WEST VIRGINIA
Water levels are normal and clear.  If you are looking for a place to go, please check the fishing regulations and the WVDNR website for a list of public access sites or call your local WVDNR district office for some advice and a place to fish.  Trout stocking continues into April.  Make sure you purchase your 2015 WV fishing license.


SOUTHERN WEST VIRGINIA
April trout stockings are in full swing and anglers should find plenty of waters stocked with trout and plenty of fish to catch.  Anglers should check this year’s fishing regulations to see which waters will be stocked. The New and Greenbrier rivers are in pretty good shape and anglers may catch some smallmouth bass using tube jigs or spinnerbaits.  Best spots are just below a shoal or rapid or in any eddy.  Anglers may also want to try their luck at Kanawha Falls for musky or hybrid stripers (use big chubs and large white jigs for bait) or lake anglers can find some excellent bass and bluegill fishing at Plum Orchard Lake and Pipestem Lake.  Best baits are plastic worms fished slowly along the bottom; spinnerbaits are also good choices for the bass while the bluegill will take small jigs, red worms, or other small live baits.


SOUTHWESTERN WEST VIRGINIA
Lower Ohio and Kanawha Rivers
Sauger and walleye will begin congregating behind locks, tributary mouths and along shoal areas in preparation for their spawn as soon as the water warms a bit, be ready!  R.C. Byrd tailrace is a great place to try.  Try bait, and small brightly colored jigs fished slow close to the bottom.  Added scent or a small piece of bait or nightcrawlers attached to the tail end of jigs really helps at this time of the year.  Fish S-L-O-W.


Guyandotte, Coal, Poca, Elk, and Mud Rivers
A few reports of very large muskies caught and released from the Elk and Coal rivers using slow moving baits and soft plastics (large tubes).  Try for walleye and sauger behind lower and upper falls as they congregate with warming water temperatures to go through their spawning rituals..


Small Impoundments
Trout stocking season is underway across the state, check for links on the WVDNR webpage or call 304-558-3399 for current reports.  Barboursville and Ridenour lakes were recently stocked.


WEST-CENTRAL WEST VIRGINIA
Trout have been stocked into several lakes throughout the area.  These include Tracy Lake and Pennsboro Water Supply Reservoir in Ritchie County, Mountwood Park Lake in Wood County, Rollins Lake and Turkey Run Lake in Jackson County, Mile Tree Lake in Roane County, Cedar Creek State Park Ponds in Gilmer County, and Conaway Run Lake in Tyler County.  Check the Daily Trout Stocking report for the latest at 304.558.3399.  This information is updated daily at 4:00 pm, January through May.  Trout anglers can use a variety of baits including small worms, mealworms, salmon eggs, cheese, or trout power bait.  Small spinners, joe type flies, and trout magnets also work well, for anglers casting the shoreline or fishing from boats.  Trolling these small lures is also affective.

This is an excellent time to fish Ohio River tailwaters.  Anglers fishing below the Belleville dam are catching sauger, walleye, and a few other species.  Lead headed jigs with twister tails (white or chartreuses), which are fished along the bottom, are the lure of choice.  Clever anglers are tipping their jig hooks with minnows.  Fishing for white bass can be quite good this time of year and medium-sized white spinners work well.  Crappie can also be found in Ohio River tailwaters.  These fish are generally suspended and jigs should be counted-down to find the correct depth to fish.  Best spots to fish these areas include eddies and back-current sections, and anywhere that river flows are unusual.  Fishing along the Willow Island tailwaters is restricted due to hydro-power development.  Anglers now have access only to a point approximately 150 yards below the dam, and flows have changed significantly.

Fishing for largemouth bass and crappie in area lakes has been very good.  Slowly fished rubber worms or jig-and-pig combos, and spinner baits are good terminal tackle choices for bass.  Crappie anglers use small jigs or minnows fished in areas of good cover.  Area lakes with good angling opportunities include Mountwood in Wood County, Conaway Run in Tyler County, Charles Fork in Roane County, North Bend Lake in Ritchie County, and Elk Fork, Woodrum, O’Brien lakes in Jackson County.

Musky streams are expected to be fishable this weekend, and muskies are quite active.  Hot spots this time of year include areas both upstream and downstream of fast moving water.  Musky anglers should try medium to large lures.  Middle Island Creek, the major streams in the Hughes River system, and the Little Kanawha River are good area musky waters.  Those interested in trying their luck with muskies in a lake should try North Bend Lake.
