BRIDGEPORT, Calif.--A fisherman walked toward the edge of the East Walker River a few yards below the Bridgeport Reservoir dam 2 1/2 weeks ago and muttered what sounded like an apology. "It's a pretty sad opening day when you're reduced to catching carp, isn't it?" he asked rhetorically. Dozens of the fish lay on the rocks, some stiff, others gasping their last breaths--evidence of the lack of respect many have for the species, and of the status to which one of California's finest trout streams has dropped.

No criminal charges will be filed in the deaths of three boys and four would-be rescuers who drowned in ice-covered Convict Lake in February, Mono County Dist. Atty. Stan Eller said. A sheriff's investigation failed to find enough evidence to support charges against staff at Camp O'Neal, a group home for troubled boys, in the Feb. 19 drownings, the prosecutor said. "After review of the reports compiled by your department, I will not be filing any criminal charges regarding this tragedy.

Nearly 40 years after turning it into a dry canyon, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power has agreed to let water flow again through a once-popular Eastern Sierra Nevada trout fishery known as the Owens River Gorge. Just when the gurgle of Sierra water will be heard again in the dusty gorge is in legal limbo.

As a former Department of Water and Power manager who was in charge of Los Angeles' drinking water quality for five years, I find Robert Jones' essay, "Death of 'Chinatown' " (Feb. 12), sad and disturbing. Jones and Richard Katz simplistically portray the battle over L.A.'s water diversions as the big, bad, stupid DWP vs. the ragtag and helpless Mono Lake Committee. They apparently do not understand, nor care about, the underlying economic and social issues. The water diverted from the Mono Lake watershed and the Eastern Sierra is the best quality drinking water and lowest cost water in Southern California.

When Mono County Judge Edward Forstenzer fined Nevada farmers $5,000 for destroying a trophy trout stream last week, he went as far as the law allowed. A $1,000 fine on each of the five misdemeanor citations--four from the state Fish and Game Code--amounted to the maximum penalty.

Fish conservationists are celebrating a decision by a Mono County jury that found Nevada farmers guilty of illegally killing thousands of trout in the East Walker River when they drew excessive water from Bridgeport Reservoir in the fall of 1988. The jury of three men and nine women deliberated for an hour last week before deciding that the Walker River Irrigation District had violated all three sections of the California Fish and Game Code cited by District Attorney Stan Eller.

Hope springs on two fronts that fishermen, distraught over the devastation of the Bridgeport Reservoir and East Walker River last fall, may soon reach accord with the Nevada farmers who took their water and ran the two prime big-fish fisheries dry. The reservoir "was pretty well wiped out," recalled California Trout president Richard May. "It was just a mud puddle." And silting from the outflow finished off the fish in the first couple of miles below the dam that once was a prime fishery.

The grunion are coming. The first predicted "runs" of the season, when these small and silvery fish beach themselves by the thousands to deposit and fertilize their eggs in the wet sand, are expected nightly next Tuesday through March 16 along dark and sandy beaches from Santa Barbara to the Mexican border. Those that chose to spawn early, and unexpectedly, last month found Orange County beaches covered with oil from the recent spill off the Huntington Beach coast.
