I love fresh fish, and I also love the creaminess of a freshly cut avocado. So to blend those two ingredients together I am going to present a fish burrito that can be served in either a flour tortilla or red lettuce leaf. I like to serve them with a side of fresh pico de gallo and my favorite hot sauce - either Cholula brand or Sriracha brand; both have a wonderful bite and flavor profile and bring out the texture of the avocado.  Scott C. Anderson is associate food service director and chef with Shepherd University dining services in Shepherdstown, W.Va., and Chef Ambassador to the Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board.

By KAREN MASTERSON Staff Writer "Yee-ha, look at this," shouted Butch Ward as he manhandled a 5-pound largemouth bass. "Com'on over here and put him in the bucket. Now, run on back. Get him to that oxygen, fast," Ward told 13-year-old Josh Fiedler, who responded with precision. Scenes like this one Tuesday at Little Conococheague Creek were part of a two-day mission of mercy that saved more than 6,000 bass, catfish, carp and sunfish from the creek's dangerously stagnant waters.

By STEVEN T. DENNIS Staff Writer At least 500 fish, large and small, were found dead Friday morning in the Rush Run creek near the Washington County Sanitary Landfill on Resh Road west of Hagerstown. Investigators from the Maryland Department of the Environment said they suspect that manure from a farm on Broadfording Road could have washed into the creek about a mile upstream from the landfill. A leak of low-strength garbage runoff from one unlined landfill cell reported earlier this week was not involved in the fish kill, said Bill Limpert, an MDE district manager.

WASHINGTON COUNTY Jerry Materiale cast his first line about 30 minutes before catching a fish Monday afternoon in the Cushwa Basin in Williamsport. "I caught one," the 9-year-old said, as his mother went to their car for a measuring tape. The fish, possibly a smallmouth bass, was 6 inches long, Maureen Austing of Hagerstown told her son. Jerry threw the fish back in the basin and cast again. Jerry and his mother planned to fish for a few hours before going to a carnival in Boonsboro, they said.

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- At times Sunday it was difficult to tell who was wetter -- the fish or the fishermen. Steady rain drummed on the check-in tent at the Chambersburg Noontime Lions Club's 12th annual Trout Derby. Soaked and sometimes shivering participants stepped inside periodically to see whether anyone had caught "the big one" or, really, any of the top 18 largest trout that promised cash payouts. The big fish board remained blank of names, a rare occurrence according to some of the two-day event's organizers.

Knable was home-schooled until January, and his teacher at Lincolnshire said the fourth-grader is doing very well.

Thomas Wayland was having a great time Friday morning pulling in a stubborn rainbow trout that was tugging on his line. “Come on in, fish. It's supper time,” urged the World War II veteran as he leaned out of his wheelchair to reel the trout close to shore and the waiting net. Of the eight fish he landed Friday morning, that 14-inch rainbow wasn't the biggest, “but it's still a very good fish,” he said. The quarter-acre pond is owned and managed by the U.S. Geological Survey's Leetown Science Center.

It was a school of fisherman - not fish - that huddled in one area of Conococheague Creek at Wilson College in Chambersburg, Pa., on Saturday. Those anglers, like all of the others standing in the water, were after one thing - the elusive tagged fish that come with prize money. Every year, thousands of fishermen from the Tri-State area come to Chambersburg for the annual Noontime Lions Trout Derby. This is the 16th year for the event, which offered nearly $50,000 in cash and prizes this year.
