Clifford J. Walker is a historian and an expert on a river many think is a myth--the 150-mile Mojave River, one of the longest and largest underground rivers in the world. "A lot of people don't believe there is a Mojave River. They see the dry bed not realizing that beneath it flows a wide, wide river," said Walker, 60, who teaches a course on the history of the Mojave Desert at Barstow Community College.

Nick Zupo says the good news is that trout fishing at Big Bear Lake should be red-hot right now. The bad news is that it won't be for long. Big Bear, along with all other Southern California fisheries, will be hit hard by a severe cutback in the state's trout planting program. Zupo is a fish culturist at the Mojave River state fish hatchery, which will be closed by Oct. 1, a victim of $12.

Assemblyman Paul Woodruff (R-Redlands) said Thursday he has the necessary 41 votes to keep the Mojave River State Fish Hatchery from closing, or at least from staying closed for long. The Victorville hatchery, scheduled to close Oct. 1 as part of budget cutbacks by the Department of Fish and Game, is the primary supplier of rainbow trout to public fisheries in Southern California.

Icy lake water has swamped the kayak hut and gangplanks at Pleasure Point Marina, and owner Roy Brownie couldn't be happier. After near-record amounts of snow and rain in the San Bernardino Mountains over the last year, wind-blown waves are cresting over Big Bear Lake's 74-foot dam and have forced the agency managing the lake to release water downstream for the first time in 15 years. For Brownie, the bountiful snowmelt has scrubbed away the residue of the most recent dry spell, which brought a 17-foot drop in lake levels, years of cracked-earth shorelines and, at the lowest point, a gratis rain dance by a sympathetic Shoshone shaman.
