Like many ranchers in the West, Fred Mallery is familiar with the tales of secret deals, bloody fights and quick riches that make up the region's water lore. These days Mallery is especially interested in the saga of the distant Owens Valley. In a blitz of deceit and cash early this century, agents took control of the fertile valley's streams and pointed them 300 miles south to water a new desert metropolis--Los Angeles.

ON A MILD SUNDAY last summer, a string of "popping sounds" drifted through the lazy night air of Beverly Hills around 10 o'clock. "I didn't think anything of it," said Tom Zlotow, a neighbor who soon learned that the noises he'd heard from the house right behind his were echoes of the most sensational crime in the history of Beverly Hills. "I didn't even think it could be gunfire, especially around here."

The playing field of the new water market is still being laid out. In two of the largest water deals by private entrepreneurs so far, eventual profits are likely to be affected by decisions still to be made by politicians and the courts. Franklyn Jeans, for instance, is betting that his Nevada water basin won't be too well-connected to the water basins of his California neighbors.

A thumbnail-size butterfly found only in northwestern Nevada and northeastern California was given permanent protection Wednesday under the Endangered Species Act. The listing published in the Federal Register makes permanent an emergency action taken in November by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to protect the Carson wandering skipper.

As if California does not have enough water fights on its hands, here comes Nevada seeking to tap underground sources that could affect wells on neighboring California ranches. The city of Reno, in search of a new supply, is looking at groundwater sources north of Reno and stretching virtually to the Oregon border. Experts in the region are comparing Reno's search to that of Los Angeles back in the early 1900s.

On Saturday, hunters in California will stalk ring-necked pheasant, dove and wild turkey as the season opens for three upland game birds. Pheasants, the big birds native to Asia, are expected to draw about 4,000 hunters to state Department of Fish and Game-sponsored hunts for juniors, families, women and wheelchair users (in one, high-school football players steer participants through the fields). California's pheasant population peaked about a half century ago.

Conservationists, mostly fly-fishing groups and guides, are hailing the California Fish and Game Commission's decision to retain regulations for another two years on the Upper Sacramento River. Anglers in a six-mile stretch in the Dunsmuir area are still allowed to fish with standard baits and lures and keep five trout daily. Those above and below town--another 40 or so miles--must catch and release, and fish only with artificial lures with barbless hooks.

The Department of Fish and Game reminds waterfowl hunters that they'll be required to use steel shot at Tule Lake National Wildlife Refuge and at some adjacent private and state lands for waterfowl hunting this season. Steel will also be required for all hunting on the state's Grizzly Island Wildlife Area in Solano County but will not be mandatory on any other hunting area in the state, the DFG says.

Each workday for the past couple of generations, the sound of war would briefly shatter the lonely afternoon peace of Honey Lake Valley, out on the backside of the northeast Sierra. Like clockwork, the military blew up unwanted bombs, rockets and munitions in open pits at Sierra Army Depot in Herlong, Calif. Plumes of smoke billowed into the sky. Windows rattled. Locals mostly shrugged. It was life's routine.
