It's a good time to catch trout at most Southland lakes, but at Lake Skinner, it seems, it's time to catch the fish that love to gobble up trout. The Riverside County reservoir is yielding huge striped bass, Westchester's Mark Lynn proved this week. He landed three large stripers, topped by a 34-pounder, on an Intruder lure. San Jacinto's Louie Lujan, using a homemade lure, also caught three stripers, the biggest 30 1/2 pounds.

Diane Trimble  took this early morning photo from the shore of Lake Skinner during the Temecula Valley Balloon & Wine Festival on June 1.  She says that " with the exception of two or three other photographers, I had the lake to myself. It was very peaceful watching the balloons glide over the lake, and I fell in love with that beautiful tree so I incorporated it into this photo. " Trimble used her  Canon 40D with an 18 mm-200 mm lens. Each week, we're featuring photos of Southern California submitted by readers.

The beavers of Lake Skinner--notorious for destroying the habitat of endangered birds--are no longer in danger themselves. State officials said Thursday that they will not kill any of the beavers they trap at the Temecula-area lake, relocating them instead to approved facilities in California or Texas. The announcement by the state Department of Fish and Game brought elation and relief to activists who have worked for weeks to save the furry rodents' lives.

SAN DIEGO -- A body, possibly of a Marine wife missing since Friday, has been found in rural Riverside County near Lake Skinner, the San Diego County Sheriff's Department said Tuesday. Authorities also have arrested a 27-year-old woman on suspicion of homicide in connection with the disappearance of 22-year-old Brittany Dawn Killgore, Sheriff's Capt. Duncan Fraser said. The suspect, Jessica Lynn Lopez, was found Tuesday morning in a San Diego motel after an apparent suicide attempt and was taken to UC San Diego Medical Center, Fraser said.

Charging that the planned killing of about 10 beavers that are endangering a songbird habitat is cruel and unwarranted, an animal welfare group sued the state Department of Fish and Game on Friday in an attempt to stop it. The state's decision to issue permits allowing the trapping and destruction of the beavers was illegal, said an attorney for the group, because it was not environmentally justified and was made without public discussion.

Time may be running out for having fun at Lake Skinner. Fishing, hunting and swimming at the lake near Temecula could be banned starting Aug. 15 if Riverside County follows through with its plan to close recreational facilities at the lake because of a dispute with the Los Angeles-based Metropolitan Water District of Southern California. Although the county staffs and maintains the park at the lake, the property is owned by the water district.

Trout are getting most of the attention throughout the Southland, but anglers at three reservoirs are finding a hard-fighting alternative in striped bass. Top catches: 17 1/2- and 14 1/2-pound stripers, by Un Young Hong of Los Angeles at Pyramid Lake; 16- and 15-pound stripers by Dan Villanueva of West Covina at Silverwood Lake; and a 14-pound striper by Jerry Schlemmer of Riverside at Lake Skinner. LAKE PERRIS--Largemouth bass fair, but few larger than 14 inches.

Anglers looking for striped bass should head to Lake Skinner, where the fish have been active throughout the lake. Anchovies have been the best bait in deep water with good top-water action in the inlet early and in late afternoon. Louie Lujan of San Jacinto caught a seven-pound striped bass using a Louie Lure in the inlet, and Gary Swanson of San Jacinto landed a seven-pound striped bass on anchovies near the inlet. Catfish have also been biting.

The last words of “The Killing's” third season - its big shot at redemption - are “no, no, no, no.” That is perhaps more poetic than intended. Famously hailed at its start, bemoaned after its Season 1 finale, canceled after Season 2 and then resuscitated for a Season 3 that started promisingly , this case ended as a sad repudiation of Det. Sarah Linden's hopeful remark to Lt. James Skinner near this season finale's start: “I think we can be different.” But it's the same - excellent acting, fine direction and thick atmosphere, all undermined by unsatisfactory writing.

As summer heats up Southland reservoirs, more attention turns to catfish, and sure enough, the rubber-skinned whiskerfish are beginning to cooperate. The largest fish, a 34-pound 4-ounce catfish, was pulled from Riverside County's Lake Skinner by Mikael Johnson of Wilmington. Eric and Jeff Aust of Lakewood, while fishing Irvine Lake, filled their stringer with 10 fish totaling 46 pounds.
