Highway 395

The ranchers and the anglers are at it again. With the Eastern Sierra trout season opening Saturday, the Plymouth Land and Livestock Company of Nevada posted signs Thursday, closing a stretch of the East Walker River north of Bridgeport to trespassers. That is the same trophy trout fishery severely damaged by silting when the Walker River Irrigation District--a group of Nevada ranchers--released a large volume of water from Bridgeport Reservoir in the fall of 1988.

A wind-whipped fire charred thousands of acres Friday in the Sierra Nevada mountains, destroying homes and forcing the evacuation of scores of residents. U.S. 50, the highway between Sacramento and South Lake Tahoe, was closed for 10 hours after the blaze burned about 630 acres, destroyed seven homes, damaged three more and forced about 120 residents of the tiny El Dorado County community of Camino to flee, authorities said. A mobile home and two smaller structures also were destroyed.

Winds gusting up to 65 mph fanned a Sierra wildfire that forced the evacuation Tuesday of up to 200 people near the California-Nevada line and the closure of a 40-mile stretch of U.S. Highway 395. With air tankers grounded in sustained 40-mph winds, the fire tripled in size from an estimated 200 acres to more than 600 acres along the Sierra's eastern front by Tuesday evening, said Mark Struble, a spokesman for the Sierra Front Interagency Fire Dispatch Center.
