FISHING -- We'll know by fall if the attempt to salvage court-settlement-doomed steelhead smolts by stocking them in Sprague Lake will be good for fishermen -- or whether the 369,000 million smolts being stocked will simply be dying and feeding bass, gulls, cormorants and pelicans.

It's a million-dollar question. Keep your fingers crossed.
