Last night Tom got one that not plentiful Lakes farther south in the Sierra in an annual wilderness egg-taking operation. These eggs are then reared to fingerling size in the Hot Creek Fish Hatchery and then stocked in waters throughout the state, usually by air. Laurel Lakes, a few miles south of Mammoth at about 10,000 feet, has missed its stocking allotments in recent years because of disease and budget problems, which is one of the reasons why it currently has so few fish. The voluntary creel surveys filled out by anglers who fished Laurel Lake in 1990 bear out both the lake of fish and the size of the few fish there, according to John Deinstadt, head of the DFG's Wild Trout program in Sacramento. On 44 surveys, only six fish were reported caught, with three of those kept. Three of the trout were over 16 inches in length, and two over 18. The smallest trout was in the 10-inch class still about double the size of most goldens caught in other California waters. Deinstadt encouraged anglers to fill out these survey forms if they fish Laurel. The survey box is right where the road ends at the lake. D einstadt said the data these surveys have provided throughout the state has been invaluable if not essential in helping the Department tune management plans for its Wild Trout waters. The data has proven so accurate that the DFG is -expanding annually the number of survey boxes placed on waters. The data gathered at Laurel Lakes has convinced the D FG and local anglers that restrictive regulations that would reduce harvest are necessary to improve the Laurels and make them more productive of trophy golden trout.

Navratiidvas attorney contended during , opening statements that Nelson's attorney unjustly benefited . from information he received , while he represented Navratilovai U.S. tops Finland : ; u . not only specifically about the Riverfront mound but with the specifications the rules provide ground crews to use in shaping mounds. Belcher is concerned with the slope of the mound from the rubber and how the clay dirt is compacted. . Teammate Kevin Gross, who took over for Belcher after his one inning, said the mound was too hard.. "It was a terrible mound," Gross said. "It didn't bother the way I pitched, but there were big chucks of dirt. It was just hard. It tore a seam in my new shoes." Manager Tommy Lasorda said the team is aware of Belcher's specific problem with the mound. . "It's just not contoured to his style and that's what hurts him," Lasorda said. "The mound is very, very harmful to him and I don't know what we can do about it." Belcher is next scheduled to start Saturday in Atlanta, but that has been made questionable with Monday's injury. "We just don't know the extent of it," Lasorda said. "I can't make any plans until (today) when we see how bad it is." Dodgcra notes Brett Butter called a clubhouse meeting prior to Monday's game to say he was going to be careful what he said to a reporter from the Atlanta Constitution and Journal currently following the Dodgers. Butler said the Atlanta paper had overblown his comment on Sunday that things were no longer coming as easily to Atlanta and he didn't want the Dodgers to say anything to help fire up the Braves. . . .

Justice's 5 RBI lift Braves CINCINNATI For Tim Belcher, it is a mound of contention. For the Dodgers, it is a pennant scare they don't need. Belcher suffered a pulled right groin muscle Monday when his foot slipped off the mound in the first inning on a pitch to Hal Morris. Belcher finished the inning and then hit to lead off the second doubling but that was it. The Dodgers decided not to take any chances and he headed for the clubhouse. . . ' . Belcher dpesn't think the injury is serious, but the Dodgers said they won't really know until today.;; ,i ; ' Belcher had a 1.95 ERA in his last five starts and has a history of pitching well in September. He was not pleased about the injury and said so sort of. Belcher left before the Dodgers finally defeated the Reds, 10-4, but did hand write a two-page statement that team publicity director Jay Lucas partially read to reporters when the clubhouse was opened. f No fewer than on three separate appearances at Riverfront Stadium I have either strained or pulled a groin of my right leg," Belcher wrote. "It doesn't feel to be too bad now. "But to miss one start, one inning, one pitch because of a poorly designed mound is too much.
