September 10, 1992


* An 800-acre area of Patapsco Valley State Park in Carroll County will be opened to bow hunters for white-tail deer from Nov. 2-Jan. 30. Hunting will be by permit only.

* When Howard Collins took a 40-pound, 4-ounce brown trout from the Little Red River in Arkansas on May 9, he settled a 125-year-old dispute -- he set the world all-tackle record for brown trout, according to the National Fresh Water Fishing Hall of Fame.

Prior to Collins' catch on 4-pound test line, three 35- to 39-pound trout had been considered the all-tackle record by three different organizations. The largest fish on record was a 38-pound, 8-ounce brown caught in Loch Awe, Scotland, in 1866 by W. Muir.
