Fly-fishing season in Wyoming starts next month and lasts well into fall. The Teton Mountain Lodge & Spa in Jackson offers a three-night package perfect for those who want a few quiet days of fishing with a little luxury too. The Angler's Dream package includes three nights lodging and two days of private guided fishing on the Snake River just a few miles away. When not on the river, guests can relax at the spa or take a dip in one of the lodge's heated pools. It's a good jumping off point for visiting Grand Teton National Park (from the southern entrance)

The average bass or trout has a brain the size of a pea, so how smart can it be? Seasoned anglers say it takes persistence, moxie and just plain know-how to outsmart the wily fish. Weekends, thousands of men and women in Southern California go bassin' and troutin' armed with the latest fishing tackle, colorful lures, "power bait" and electronic fish finders to catch their finny foes. But many come back empty-handed and disappointed.

Soon enough Dwight Howard will have to make one of the biggest decisions of his career. Seemingly everyone has voiced an opinion about where and what Howard will do when he hits free agency. Rarely has Howard himself gone on record. "It's OK. People are going to talk, and everybody is going to have an opinion on any type of situation," Howard said in a phone interview with The Times. "I totally understand that. " However, before the Houston Rockets, Dallas Mavericks, Atlanta Hawks and other franchises make their pitches, Howard was far more eager to talk about catching a mackinaw.

The June 29 story ("Cascades and Quiet") about Stehekin-- that tiny village at the head of Lake Chelan in Washington state--brought back happy memories of our wartime vacations there. Travel was restricted, and money was scarce at that time of our lives. The bus trip to Chelan, the steamer ride on the lake and a small resort at Lucerne fit into our tiny budget. But instead of Lucerne, we wound up at Stehekin, where the food at Beryl Imus' lunchroom was extra special, and the fishing was amazing.

I enjoyed the Aug. 23 story on Lake O'Hara ("Canada's Beauty Secret") because my husband and I, often with friends and family, have been going there each summer for eight years. I know another beautiful resort in British Columbia (about 200 miles north of Vancouver), where accommodations are readily available. Tsuniah Lake Lodge is on the eastern side of the Pacific Coast Range. It is owned and managed by the Brebner family--Bobbie, Eric and Brian. The lodge has a commanding view of Tsuniah Lake.

The timing could not have been worse for this community of boaters. For months they had been planning a spirited revival of a tradition called the Blessing of the Fleet to unify a city hit hard by Hurricane Katrina. Boaters, fishermen, seafood merchants and residents would honor seafarers who have died and offer prayers for the fleet to bring home a robust catch. But amid the crawfish and T-shirt tables, folks voiced an undercurrent of worry: What now? The ominous gulf oil slick loomed offshore.

The sky was still black over the Gulf of Mexico as fisherman Jeff Howard steered his battered flat-bottom boat from one crab trap to another, frantic to snap up a few more crustaceans before the oil came. He had little time to waste. Stiff winds, rough waters and almost empty traps wouldn't keep him docked. Anything, he figured, was better than nothing. "Today might be the last day you can go," said Howard, 43. "You might not be able to go for another year. Who knows?" As the massive oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico continued to spread Friday, Louisiana's $2.5-billion commercial fishing industry, which provides much of the country's domestic shrimp and oysters, is bracing for a virtual shutdown that could trigger shortages and price hikes for consumers nationwide.

Trout are pretty picky characters. They like their water vodka-clear and their insects served just so. The good news: You can find the fish from the Sierra to Siberia.

Kim Bain-Moore is making history as the first woman to compete in the Bassmaster Classic, but many of the 50 male anglers she is fishing against aren't happy about it. They insist they have nothing personal against the 28-year-old Australian native; they just don't think she deserves a shot at the $500,000 first prize and the endorsements that come with a Classic victory.

John Muir said Kings Canyon had everything Yosemite and Sequoia had--granite walls towering over wildflower meadows and ferny forests of giant trees--and yet those two were national parks 50 years before Kings Canyon joined the elite in 1940, after Ansel Adams showed his pictures to Congress.
