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.

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.

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.

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.

Thirty-one people drowned and seven were missing after their small boats overturned off the East China coast while they were fishing for baby eels, the official Shanghai Evening News reported Monday. Most of the eel fanciers, who sailed into the open sea in a flotilla of small wooden boats, had no sailing experience, the newspaper said.

Wildlife officials from Oregon and Washington have voted to close spring salmon fishing on the Columbia River to save endangered fish runs. Members of the Columbia River Compact, a board made up of wildlife officials from the states, voted to close the fishing season effective Feb. 16. It is the first fishing ban on the river since the compact was formed in 1918. The closure bans all sport and commercial fishing along 140 miles of the lower Columbia below Bonneville Dam.
