In unusually florid language, a suit filed Wednesday on behalf of anglers accused Southern Pacific Transportation Co. of being responsible for California's first "junk bond toxic spill." The suit, filed in Redding, charged the railroad with negligence in the July 14 derailment that spilled poisonous metam-sodium, alleging that Southern Pacific failed to maintain its train and tracks because it needed to cut expenses to meet heavy interest payments on its corporate debt.

The oil spill off Huntington Beach was termed "disastrous" by one of two sportfishing operators who cannot get their boats out of Newport Harbor. "We're canceling 400 or 500 people for (today)," said Eddie DiRuscio, manager of Davey's Locker. "It's disastrous. Fishing, parasailing, whale watching--everything." Jim Watts of Newport Landing estimated that the shutdown would cost him up to $5,500 in business today alone, most of that for whale-watching trips, the rest for fishing charters.

Driven by shore-bound winds, the slick from a 300,000-gallon oil spill reached miles of new beaches in Orange County on Friday, threatening major wildlife refuges and confounding cleanup crews working frantically to contain the disaster. The brown and black goo was reported washing ashore as far north as Sunset Beach, near the sensitive Bolsa Chica wetlands and a federal wildlife reserve at the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.

About 3,200 white sea bass fingerlings were delivered last week to the "grow-out pens" of the Dana Point Harbor Fisheries Enhancement Program, officials said. John Riordan, the program's president, said his group and the United Anglers of Southern California have delivered 5,700 sea bass to Dana Point Harbor since October. The fish are allowed to grow to about 7 inches from their initial size of about 1 to 2 inches. They are then released into the ocean.

A "catch and release" bass fishing tournament Saturday in Newport Bay will benefit a local bass hatchery program. The state Department of Fish and Game and Carlsbad-based Hubbs-Sea World Research Institute have helped local anglers put together a hatchery program to replenish white sea bass and other depleted indigenous species, tournament organizers said.

A fishing conservation group dumped nearly 1,500 concrete poles off the coast this week in a continuing effort to revitalize marine life of the Bolsa Chica artificial reef. The United Anglers of Southern California took a barge four miles off Huntington Beach and dropped the hollow poles in waters about 90 feet deep. In recent months, about 6,000 poles have been dumped in the ocean, said Jim Paulk, a spokesman for the organization.

Ventura County fishermen are putting the finishing touches on a project to bring 50,000 king salmon to Oxnard's Channel Islands Harbor. In the first such attempt in Southern California, the Ventura County chapter of the United Anglers of California Research Institute will introduce the fish into ocean waters. If the project is successful, fishermen say, it could bring a major sport fishing business to Ventura County and set a trend for areas of Los Angeles and Orange counties.
