Gal on the go Job-tour combination open to secretaries By KRYSTAL POOL Los Angeles Times Service Popular Buckskin Park on Colorado River north of Parker Sportsmen find variety along Colorado Looping river offers wide range of fresh-ivater recreation Western Arizona Bureau . YUMA — Fresh water enthusiasts here are blessed with myriad numbers of pis- catory pools, ranging in size from loch to lakelet, some as difficult to locate as the Golden Fleece, others as hard to lose as the Pacific Ocean. Just above Yuma are nearly a dozen small lakes, most of which have escaped the notice of mapmakers but not of fish frog and water fowl fans. . CRAPPIES, sunfish, bluegill and bass await the fishermen's doll fly and waterdog in 50-acre Haughtelin Lake, 3 miles upstream from Yuma, and in lakes of the Imperial Dam area. Squaw, 150 acres; Senator Wash Reservoir, 150 acres; Mittry, 640 acres (behind Laguna Dam); Martinez, 1,000 i acres; and just west of Marling Ferguson, 640 acres. Just upriver is a small, popular pond called Butler Hole, then 200-acre Clear Lake. While some of the lakes i above Imperial Dam may be \ inaccessible from the river ! because of low water, Mysterious Tunnel Lake is always accessible but difficult to find. LOCATED ON the Arizona side a mile upriver from Clear Lake, its only access is by way of a tunnel washed out beneath a network of densely developed bullrushes at the southwest corner of the half-mile long, 330-yard Covert Cove. Two miles upriver is 250-acre Island Lake, formed with a large island in its center. Nearby is 100-acre Cable Lake, named for a mining operation in California that used a cable across the river there. More and more recreation- ists are discovering California's still-wild Picacho State Recreation Area, 3 miles upstream from Cable Lake and directly opposite the 100-acre Fence Lake, a favorite among duck hunters, as well as anglers. Close by on the California side is 400-acre Taylor Lake. JUST UPSTREAM from Fence Lake, is 50-acre Norton's Lake and Norton's Landing, where steamboats once docked to unload freight. Area sportsmen consider Adobe Lake, just above Norton's landing, a prime fishing spot but it is now too shallow for boats. Still deep enough or Boats and offering plenty of casting room is Cibola Lake, 15 miles upstream, covering nearly a square mile. Colorado River Indian tribes are developing some of the best trout fishing in Arizona along a dozen miles of river between Palo Verde Weir and Headgate Rock Dam in the Parker vicinity. WATER SKIERS and pow- erboaters favor the river channel near Martinez Lake and the 11-mile resort strip on Lake Moovalya above Parker as well as Lake Havasu and Lake Mead. House trailers and overnight campers are allowed from periods ranging from 14 •days to indefinitely in private and public camping areas, including national monuments, national recreation areas, and parks. A 3 day camping limit is maintained on game refuges. Picnic tables in Colorado River country are available at Pipe Spring National Monument near Fredonia, Grand Canyon Monument, Lake Mead Recreation Area, Hua- lapai Mountain Park near Kingman, Five Mile Landing; Black and Stevens Catfish Paradise and Shorty's Camp near Topock, Lake Havasu State Park, Ehrenberg, Needles, Blythe, Parker, Buckskin State Park north of Parker, and just north of Yuma, Imperial Refuge. Fisher's Landing, Martinez Lake Marina and Imperial Camp. For sightseers along the Colorado River corridor there are ghost towns like White Hills and Oatman, Joshua Forests, at the Mohave County end of the river and a territorial prison, Arabian- desert sand dunes, stage stops and abandoned mines at the Yuma arm of the Colorado. IN BETWEEN, are bighorn sheep, Crystal Hill, Palm Canyon and Kofa Mine on Kpfa Game Refuge and a windfall of waterfowl, ranging from avocets to widgeons, whistling swan and white faced ibis on Imperial, Cibola, Havasu, and Topock Wildlife preserves. Twenty-six miles south of Yuma is colorful San Luis, Son., and a taste of old Mexico, while 90 miles south of Yuma on paved road is Santa Clara Del Golfo, offering motels, uncrowded beaches and fish boat rentals on the pelican-populous Gulf of California. So often in the past I have received letters from girls who want to go to Europe, but can't afford the fare. At last I have ultra good news ... at least for those who can pound a typewriter, take dictation and file a letter properly. It seems an enterprising New York tour operator realized the shortage of funds among the working women and decided to help make our dreams of faraway places come true. The letter I received from the British Travel Association said the tour is for eight weeks in London for qualified secretaries with 60 wpm typing and 100 wpm shorthand. The $450 package rate offers round-trip air transportation from New York, a week's accommodation in a guest house, breakfast every morning and an employment agency to find a 30-36 hour-per- week job. If this interests you, details can be obtained from Tern-Positions Inc., 420 Lexington Ave., .New York, N.Y. 10017. (Your eight-week job should take care of the $450 rate plus other expenses along the way.) * * * QUESTION — What's your opinion of a lone woman traveler going on an African Safari? ANSWER — Marvelous... You'll be the envy of every female in town. However, I would suggest going with a group. Airlines to check with about air fares and special tours are Al Italia and TWA lines. They both offer interesting and unusual programs. For example, one tour department informed me that Cheryl Miller, TV star of "Daktari," will personally escort a three-week safari into East Africa leaving Sept. 9. This is a photo- safari. . .so the only shooting you'll be doing will be with a camera. Q. — IT'S hard enough telling a hairdresser how you want your hair styled at home. How in the world do you do it when you can't even speak the language?
