Amid a tedious lull it becomes strikingly clear, on this bright morning, that the best fisherman is not on shore, in a boat or in a float tube. It's a large osprey that has swooped from the treetops and plucked a 2-pound trout from beneath the glassy surface. Power Bait is no match for a keen eye and a pair of wings. But the anglers persist, molding colorful gobs onto their hooks and casting anew, taking solace, at least, that they aren't going to starve if they get skunked.

Aiona Fernandez and her wide-eyed, stroller-bound son, Benjamin, were greeted by squawks from mud hens, white geese and green-necked mallards that dived greedily after bits of stale bread the pair tossed into the lake at Laguna Niguel Regional Park on Wednesday morning. Little did they know, those scraps may be deadly. Bread fed by humans is thought to have caused the botulism deaths of more than 20 male mallards at the lake since late October.

Respite for Trees: The Building Industry Assn. of Orange County planted 100 trees at Laguna Niguel Regional Park this month to celebrate Earth Day. The builders' group said it plans to plant a total of 500 trees in county parks this year. With the tremendous decline in building activity that has occurred over the past eight months, this could result in a net increase in the number of trees in California.

City officials said Thursday that they are pleased with the County Board of Supervisors' decision to postpone a vote on plans for a day camp at Laguna Niguel Regional Park. The supervisors decided this week to schedule public hearings at the end of summer before taking action on the proposal, which would have established a facility to accommodate as many as 400 children within three years. "I think they did the right thing, the smart thing," Councilman Mark Goodman said.

Starting Saturday, Sulphur Creek Reservoir will be closed while it is drained and refurbished. The lake, in Laguna Niguel Regional Park, has had increasing problems with algae growth, organic sedimentation, high turbidity and low levels of dissolved oxygen resulting in poor water quality and a reduced game fish population, according to the county Environmental Management Agency. The project includes draining the lake to allow for the installation of a new dam outlet structure, dredging of bottom sediment, improving lake access and enhancing the habitat for fish.
