A speeding pickup swerved out of control on California 79 near Lake Cuyamaca on Monday, causing a head-on collision in which one man died, authorities said. Thomas Fleming, 39, of San Diego was driving the pickup south on the highway at 3:45 p.m. and, "because of excessive speed," crossed the center line on a curve about a quarter of a mile south of the lake, colliding with an oncoming car, California Highway Patrol Officer Klaus Groeger said.

Catfish at most Southland lakes are becoming sluggish and inactive with the cooler nights, but those at Lake Cuyamaca, a high mountain reservoir east of San Diego, are just beginning to feed. "As crazy as this may sound, some of the best catfishing of the year occurs during the next couple of months," lake ranger Hugh Marx said in his weekly report. "In fact, some of the best days are when the water temperature gets below 40 degrees.

Hugh Marx doesn't need to analyze San Diego County's declining tourism numbers to see that something fishy is going on in the nation's economy. As the general manager of the Lake Cuyamaca Recreation and Park District in East County, Marx is a man who is used to viewing the economy in terms of bait sales, boat rentals and lake user fees, all of which he says are way down this year.

Nestled amid the pines and cedars, flanked by the highest peaks in the Cleveland National Forest, Lake Cuyamaca sparkles under the bright sun. It's spring in this small mountain community and with it comes an increase in activity both in and around the lake. Rainbow trout are waking up and becoming feisty, as they do when the water warms. Deer are grazing in green meadows. Bobcats are pouncing on squirrels and mice. And mountain lions are lurking in the shadows.

Lake Cuyamaca has been treated with a herbicide to reduce the weed responsible for killing hundreds of rainbow trout in the past month. No new trout will be stocked in the lake until the water's alkaline level--raised unusually high by uncontrolled growth of the sago pond weed--is reduced, said Hugh Marx, general manager of the Lake Cuyamaca Recreation and Park District, which regulates recreation at the reservoir.

Searchers spent a third day looking in the mountains of northern San Diego County for a 79-year-old Lakeside woman who disappeared Sunday while hiking. Edith Verline Baker was camping with her daughter and grandchildren in the woods between Lake Cuyamaca and Julian when she went hiking alone. The Sheriff's Department searched with helicopters, mounted officers and divers. Officials said Baker took no water with her and was not wearing clothing suitable to stay out overnight.

An inmate at the Descanso detention camp escaped in a milk truck Tuesday morning but was recaptured in the afternoon, Sheriff's Deputy Robert Knox said. Scott Lee Ropp, 27, in custody for burglary, resisting arrest and traffic violations, was missed in the morning and the truck driver was notified by two-way radio that Ropp might be inside. When the driver opened the back of the vehicle, Ropp jumped out and ran into the woods.

While hundreds in Northern California wait for flood waters to recede so they can see what is left of their homes, here in Southern California only a few are turning out at Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area to see what is left of theirs. Their flood occurred 25 years ago, when the vast San Bernardino County reservoir was created as part of the State Water Project. The small community of Cedar Springs was swallowed up, its residents paid market value for their homes and forced to move.
