Darrin Moffet of Windsor regularly goes looking for shells to make jewelry off the Sonoma Coast and recently made an interesting discovery.
A 45-year-old San Francisco man with a fishing spear stuck in his leg was rescued from the rocks along the Sonoma coast on Saturday, according to the Sonoma County Sheriff’s Office.
Fish and Game officials said reports of dead abalone and a variety of invertebrates have come from Bodega Bay, Russian Gulch, Fort Ross, Timber Cove and Salt Point State Park in Sonoma County.
A Canadian man, who crawled up a ravine after he crashed his motorcycle just north of Fort Ross near Timber Cove on Tuesday afternoon, suffered serious injuries, according to the California Highway Patrol.
A Santa Rosa man Friday morning became the second abalone diver in two days to die while harvesting the mollusks on the Sonoma Coast.
UPDATE: A motorcyclist who died after he drove off state Highway 1 near Jenner on Tuesday afternoon was identified Wednesday morning as 48-year-old Douglas Scott Fennell, of Santa Rosa.
