By ANDREW FORGRAVE Rural Affairs Editor A SPECIAL angling guide is being launched in an attempt to curb the River Dee's salmon crisis. Atlantic salmon in the river are failing to achieve sustainable spawning levels that will safeguard stocks in the future. The Welsh Dee Trust says a compulsory season-long catch-and- release policy could be imposed on the river if anglers retain too many young fish. Its postcard-sized guide will inform anglers how to handle caught salmon and...

By Kevin Klott, Anchorage Daily News, Alaska Jun. 19--DEEP CREEK -- The halibut fishing got crazy around 5:30 Monday afternoon as the incoming tide began to slack in the icy waters of the Cook Inlet. A plume of steam rose from Mount Iliamna several miles north, the Cook Inlet bluffs looked like skyscrapers to the east and sun glimmered off the rolling sea. But 200 feet below Dan Retzinger's 22-foot Hewescraft, a party of flatfish was getting started -- and all five of Retzinger's guests...

Most hunters are aware of bird bands. Those most familiar are the metallic leg bands on ducks and geese. The band will typically include instructions for reporting identifying numbers or letters related to the organization doing the research. Hunters have always embraced and understood their role in these scientific studies, and banded birds are usually considered as a special trophy by the hunters who harvest them.

Or it's there one day, then piled up in crinkly windrows along shore the next. It isn't the kind of ice a trout angler can count on. But inside the protective breakwalls of the nearly completed McQuade Public Boat Access, anglers have discovered thick, smooth ice that the big lake cannot tamper with. On Tuesday afternoon, four or five...
