Fishermen lined the shores of Crowley Lake for opening day of the Eastern Sierra trout season. They were walking on water at nearby Lake Sabrina. And while the thousands at Crowley scratched and struggled through large swells and face-chapping winds to catch a few fish, most of the few hundred at Sabrina had caught their limits before Mother Nature could muster so much as a breeze.

Paving the way for trial, a federal judge on Monday denied a motion to dismiss charges against two of the six defendants in an international kidnap-for-ransom case. U.S. District Judge Nora Manella also disqualified attorney Victor Sherman from further representing Iouri Mikhel. The judge said the lawyer's simultaneous representation of another defendant in the case constituted an "extremely serious potential for conflict" of interest.

The Castaic Dam Visitors Center is probably not worth a special trip. But if you are in the Castaic Lake area to indulge in water sports or just happen to be passing through on the Golden State Freeway, the center makes for a pleasant rest stop. Situated on a cliff high above the man-made lake, the center is an isolated, wooden building at the edge of the Angeles National Forest.

The great drawdown of Castaic Lake began this week. Officials are slowly lowering the surface level of the popular lake 45 miles northwest of Los Angeles to allow for a once-a-decade series of repairs. The lake should reach its lowest point -- 60 feet below normal summertime levels -- about Dec. 22, said Lori Mathis, a spokeswoman for the state Department of Water Resources. But boaters can rest assured.

Where do you go to catch a giant tuna, a sailfish or a large dorado? Somewhere off the west coast of Mexico? Try Southern California. To add to what has already been a strangely productive summer, a sailfish was caught just outside Dana Point Harbor, and giant bluefin and yellowfin tuna have been taken from offshore banks off Santa Catalina Island's east end. Mac Oliphant, a Department of Fish and Game biologist, said the "extremely rare" catch of a sailfish--a 22.

The truth about Clear Lake: It isn't. Furthermore, said Terry Knight, a free-lance writer and fishing guide, "Although this lake is known across the country for its bass, catfish is by far the most popular form of fishing." And the crappie . . . To many anglers, the bass aren't even second. Around Clear Lake, it is sometimes difficult to separate legend from fact. There are tales of haunted houses built over ancient Pomo Indian burial grounds. Residents hear parties going on in the next room--until they go check.

On a sunny afternoon in December, Karapet Aslanyan of Glendale found a kayak at the cabin he was renting on Big Bear Lake and decided to go for a paddle. Aslanyan, 19, was less than 50 feet from the shore of Boulder Bay, where his friends watched from picnic tables, when he capsized into the 39-degree water. Rescue crews arrived within minutes, but Aslanyan, after struggling in vain to reach some rocks, had slipped beneath the surface.
