A little about Playa Zipolite, The Beach of the Dead . . .

Playa Zipolite, Oaxaca, Southern Mexico, on the Pacific Ocean. A little bit about my favorite little get-away on this small world of ours.

Zipolite, a sweaty 30-minute walk west from Puerto Angel, brings you to Playa Zipolite and another world. The feeling here is 1970's - Led Zep, Marley, and scruffy gringos.

A long, long time ago, Zipolite beach was usually visited by the Zapotecans...who made it a magical place. They came to visit Zipolite to meditate, or just to rest.

Recently, this beach has begun to receive day-trippers from Puerto Angel and Puerto Escondido, giving it a more TOURISTY feel than before.

Most people come here for the novelty of the nude beach, yoga, turtles, seafood, surf, meditation, vegetarians, discos, party, to get burnt by the sun, or to see how long they can stretch their skinny budget.

I post WWW Oaxaca, Mexico, Zipolite and areas nearby information. Also general budget, backpacker, surfer, off the beaten path, Mexico and beyond, information.

REMEMBER: Everyone is welcome at Zipolite.

Tribe to offer anglers $10 reward for northern pike heads from Lake Roosevelt

Tribe to offer anglers $10 reward for northern pike heads from Lake Roosevelt

FISHING -- A $10 a head reward on northern pike caught in Lake Roosevelt will be offered by the Colville Confederated Tribes Fish and Wildlife Program starting May 1.
The reward program is part of the effort to reduce the number of the nonnative predators moving into the Columbia River system. The Colville Tribe has earmarked up to $10,000 for paying the bounties. The Colvilles also are working with the Spokane Tribe and Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to gillnet and remove pike in the Kettle Falls area.
To qualify for the reward, the pike must have been caught in the main stem Columbia River from Grand Coulee Dam upstream to the U.S.-Canada border, the Spokane River upstream to Little Falls or the Kettle River.
Anglers age 17 and older must fill out a card with information on their catch, remove pike heads according to directions and drop off the heads in freezers at one of two sites:  Kettle Falls Marina on the lake near the town of Kettle Falls, and Noisy Waters gas station northwest of Kettle Falls off US 395.
Participants will receive $10 for every northern pike head deposited according to directions.
