CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -- Several people piled into their vehicles on Sunday afternoon with more than a couple of trout and sunburn after a weekend of fishing. Some anglers left with cash in their pockets when the 11th annual Chambersburg Noontime Lions Club Trout Derby drew to a close. The two-day derby prompted more than 1,200 fishermen to take to the Conococheague Creek. "It's amazing what happens when you throw $2,500 into the water. It tends to draw a crowd," said Dave Rotz, chairman of the trout derby's organizing committee.

Legend has it that when fly fishing for trout, one needs a precise presentation of floating flies to trout that are zeroed in on a particular insect hatch. This is true in April and May, but for the early season, underwater flies -- nymphs and wet flies -- will take the trout. In most cases, a well presented underwater fly can actually take more stocked trout that the favorite live and commercial baits. All we need is a few warm days and the diehards will be out there dunking baits and flies.

Each spring many anglers look forward to the beginning of the trout-stocking season and the fishing opportunities the stocked trout present. It's one of the signs that spring is here and warmer weather is on the way. Washington County's fishing opportunities for stocked trout are some of the most varied in the state. Locally, we have lake or impoundment fishing opportunities in places such as Greenbrier Lake, Blair's Valley Lake and Big Pool. If you prefer moving waters, some of the most popular streams are Beaver Creek or Sideling Hill Creek.

According to the long-range weather forecast, the Tri-State area could continue the recent trend of above-average temperatures for the rest of February and March. Obviously there will be some cold periods, and even some snow and ice, but the fact is, the beginning of the trout fishing season is actually here. For non-anglers, it seems strange to be thinking of fishing when the ground is covered with snow and the streams are rimmed with ice. But the diehard anglers don't always think like most folks.

It's a rare moment when someone who loves the outdoors isn't smiling from ear to ear after getting a chance to commune with nature. When wife Barbara and I went upcountry to the Savage River Lodge, in the easternmost part of Garrett County, we pulled into the entrance of the lodge, took a deep breath of cool, clean mountain air, smiled and exchanged knowing glances. We acknowledged that the wild deer standing on the road with their heads cocked in our direction, checking us out, was a good omen.

Before he could play the blues his way, Western Maryland Blues Fest veteran Walter Trout had to pay his dues. The first half of his 40-year career was spent paying dues - playing pop covers and country, and serving as a sideman for blues greats such as John Lee Hooker. But those years helped mold Trout into a confident blues craftsman, unapologetic about the kind of music he makes. "I have to do for me what I think is my best work," said Trout, during a telephone interview.

Most anglers prefer to stay inside during the months of January and February. But the trout fishing season and trout stocking season is actually already here and the diehards are out there. The diehards usually do not see things the way that most do. West Virginia has begun its stocking season, with the biannual and weekly waters set to receive one stocking this month. Several friends have told me that they have enjoyed some pretty good days already this month - undoubtedly helped by the mild weather so far this winter.
