(fJ "ssawss rn...".ic ) j I I !ff Warmth Raises Pishing Fever By Tim Renken Speeded by the season's first warm Sunday, the epidemic known as fishing fever is spreading throughout the St. Louis area. Its most prominent symptoms are greatly increased traffic in local sporting goods stores and letters and telephone calls to newspaper fishing Outdoors writers. The malady is more mental than physical because it hasn't been reflected in many people actually going fishing at least locally. This may be because there isn't fSf much fishing to be done locally yet. There is a lot of fishing to be done to the south, though. Already spring has reached as far north as central Arkansas where quite a few fish are being taken from Greers Ferry reservoir. The water temperature, key element in the annual revival of fishing there ranges from 45 to 52 degrees, depending upon water depth and the ambient temperature that day. Generally, fishing gets good when the water temperature is between 50 and 55 degrees and the fish begin their spawning activity. At Greers Ferry now, about 340 miles from St. Louis, an- RenVen NBA Standings Eastern Conference ATLANTIC DIVISION W L Pot.

Black bass are being found In the warmer ends of coves on the flats where the sun's warming effect Is greatest. Lures that run just below the surface are most effective with the most popular the various single spins that must be worked quite rapidly. The best fishing now, though, is even tarther south, at the southwestern Arkansas reservoir of Millwood, at Sam Rayburn in Texas an3 at Toledo Bend on the Texas-Louisiana border. Topwater fishing for bass is good at all three places and crap-pie fishing, from all reports, is nothing less than excellent. Anglers, fishing mostly at night, have been taking 100 to 150 fish in a session with the crappie averaging more than a pound. Closer to home, the reservoirs more popular with St. Louis anglers Norfork. Table Rock and Bull Shoals are probably at least a week or two away from the outset of real spring-type fishing. Bass are being taken at all of them, especially Bull Shoals. Most of these are being caught by resident experts who know how to use that tool of the experts, the jig and eel. The first runs of white bass in the creeks are beginning on all of the big reservoirs in southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. However, this kind of fishing is notoriously unpredictable, so much so it usually fails to interest persons who must travel long distances for their fishing. Both Clearwater and Wappapello reservoirs, less than 160 mites from St. Louis, are producing some crappie fishing now. White bass have been fairly good, also, on Clearwater, especially in the main stem near Bluff View and up fn Logan Creek. Crappie fishing is beginning to develop at various places on Carlyle (111.) reservoir. Anglers are finding fish almost at the surface as the crappie come up to seek sun-warmed water. Lake of the Ozarks is still several weeks away, guides are saying. Water temperatures there is below 40 degrees. And the entire main stem (Osage) is muddy and likely to remain so for a while. Most of the arms, though, remain clear. The Post-Dispatch will begin its regular Thursday fishing reports on area waters beginning April 1.

March 18 Rick Barry, who's been there before, knows what it takes to sell a relatively new league such as the American Basketball Association. "You can have a good game in the Garden and it's better than having a great game in a place like North Carolina," he said. Well, the ABA had its cake and ate it, too, last night in its second appearance this season in Madison Square Garden, the bastion of the New York Knicks of the rival National Basketball Association. Barry, the glamour boy of the league, certainly did his part, scoring 45 points and then feeding off to Bill Melchionni for a 20-foot jump shot with three seconds left that gave the New York Nets a 122-120 victory over the Kentucky Colonels as a screaming crowd of 10,828 shook the place. The opener of the doublehead-er was almost as good as the Floridans came from behind to upset the Utah Stars, 120-116, behind little Mack Calvin's 41 points. In other ABA games, Indiana beat Texas, 123-109, at Anderson, Ind., and Pittsburgh tripped Carolina, 133-120, at Charlotte, N.C. Utah thus remained one percentage point ahead of Indiana in the W e s t e r n Division, but o n e -h a I f game behind, while Pittsburgh kept one-half length in front of the Floridians in the Eastern Division in their battle for fourth place, the last playoff spot. Melchionni's shot from the corner gave him the last of his 32 points and capped a great day and night for the ABA, which earlier Introduced to the ' New York press top draft pick Artis Gilmore of Jacksonville, who signed Tuesday with Kentucky. The Nets normally play their home games in nearby Long Island in the Island Garden, which seats only 5600, compared to the 19,500-seat Madison Square Garden. Calvin, the smallest man on the court at 6 feet, was the showman in the first game. "We had a 6 o'clock game and the people were there to see us," Calvin said. "Playing here is something like baseball and playing in Yankee Stadium. It was a bigger crowd than we're used to, and it makes you play harder." In the NBA, Bob Cousy's master plan for the Cincinnati Royals may have to wait another year. Cousy's rebuilding program, which began last season with the sale of .Terry Lucas and con-t i n u e d this season with the trade of Oscar Robertson, both long-time Cincinnati stars, suffered a snag last nipht when the visiting San Francisco Warriors downed the Royals, 110-92. The defeat all but c r u s h e d Cincinnati's hopes for the second-place playoff berth behind the Baltimore B u 1 1 e t s in the Central Division. The Royals trail the second-place Atlanta Hawks by two games and each team has two games to play. Elvin Hayes scored 28 points to help the San Diego Rockets beat the visiting Detroit Pistons, 106-99. San Diego remained two games behind San Francisco in the battle for second place in the Pacific Division.

Four North American Soccer League teams will take part, with the Stars to face Dallas in the 8 o'clock opener and the league champion Rochester Lancers opposing Washington in the second game. To break up scoring thrusts in soccer, defensive players frequently kick the ball high over the sideline to produce a t h r o w -i n. In Hoc-Soc, a two minute penalty will be assessed for deliberately kicking the ball out of play. Also, the goalie in outdoor soccer frequently kicks the ball away from the net he is defending, but in tomorrow night's tournament the goalie can clear a ball "only by throwing it to a player within his half of the field." Walter Giesler, general manager of the Stars, said, "Those two rules alone should keep the ball within the 200-by-85-foot playing area. A player will think twice before kicking it away and being assesseda two-minute penalty. "An indirect, free kick for the way than throwing it to a teammate." Eight of the NASL's top 12 scorers will be in the field, in-eluding the 1970 scoring co-champions Kirk Apostolidis of Dallas and Carlos Metidieri of Rochester. Other scoring standouts competing will include Warren Archibald and Le-roy De Leon of Washington, Manfred Seissler and Eli Durante of Rochester, Bob Moffat of Dallas and the Stars' Pat McBride. Lincoln Phillips, the NASL's No. 1 goalie in 1970 with a 0.95 goals-against average, i s expected to tend goal for Washington. Six men, as in hockey, will be on the fast AstroTurf surface, unless a team is penalized. The winners of the first two games will meet for the $1000 top prize, with the losers matchtd in the third game of the program for the consolation prize of $600. The runner-up is to receive $750. Each game is to consist of two 30-minute attacking team will be the pen- halves, with sudden-death over-alty for a goaltender's offense time planned to break any tie in clearing the ball in any other after regulation time.
