For more than 56,000 Maryland anglers, there's nothing so sweet or more of a harbinger of spring than the growl of the big trucks filled with trout. In good weather and bad, state fisheries tank trucks load up with thousands of trout raised at hatcheries and drop them off in waterways from Western Maryland to the Eastern Shore: iridescent speckled rainbows; dusky, glistening brown trout; and a sunflower-yellow variety that makes the surrounding water glitter.

Orioles right-hander Bud Norris celebrated one of his eight strikeouts in Monday night's win over Anaheim with particular vigor. Norris faced the best player in baseball, Mike Trout, with the bases loaded and two outs, and when Trout watched a 95-mph heater apparently grab the outside corner for strike three, Norris strutted back to the dugout and, well, showed him where that kind of heat came from . Trout argued the call, though...

Tucked amid the woods of northern Baltimore County is one of Maryland's natural gems - the Big Gunpowder Falls, a nationally renowned trout stream that draws anglers from far and wide to try their skills and luck in the cold, rushing water. But some fishermen and fishing guides say they're having a harder time getting at this prized outdoor resource - though it's publicly accessible in Gunpowder Falls State Park - because of unusually heavy river flows that make it hard to fish or even stand at times in the water.

Rainbow trout with its mild, delicate and sweet flesh cooks in just five minutes. Together with the pumpkin puree, this meal takes only 15 minutes to make. Farm-raised trout is available in supermarkets and is a treat. A little brown sugar, salt and pepper is all that's needed for this quick entree. The trout come dressed, which means they have been cleaned and bones removed. They're sold with heads and tail on. If you prefer, ask for them to be removed at the market. Walnuts tossed with brown sugar top the sweet pumpkin puree.

It's no secret that the Gunpowder River is a blue-ribbon trout stream known by anglers all around the Mid-Atlantic states. What made it great was a partnership among fishermen and state and local government. Part of what keeps it great happens almost every fall, when volunteers and biologists conduct a trout count at a handful of spots, called sampling stations, along the upper river. From their careful monitoring, state fisheries managers do their best to keep conditions at their peak.

Rainstorm runoff from construction of a new private golf course in northwest Baltimore County has smothered a natural trout stream under a thick layer of mud and silt, renewing debate over how well the county is protecting its waterways from abuse by development.County officials have ordered the firm building the Caves Valley Club, Whiting-Turner Contracting Co., to restore the stream, a meandering unnamed tributary of the north branch of the Jones Falls.Robert W. Sheesley, county director of environmental protection, blamed heavy summer rains and the developer's failure to maintain sediment and erosion controls for six to eight inches of mud that blanketed nearly a half mile of the stream.

Jeff Lewatowski trudged upstream, the chilly, knee-deep Gunpowder River flowing around his waterproof overalls. Following the inside curve of a bend, he picked a likely looking spot and settled in, much like the trout he planned to catch. "They want to take advantage of the bugs," said Lewatowski, 39, who lives in Havre de Grace and guides fishing trips around the state. "They get very excitable the more bugs there are on the water. … They compete in a spot in the creek to sit. " May through June is sulphur mayfly season, with thousands of mayfly nymphs swimming up from sunken logs and rocks to molt and flutter away for their brief adult lives.

Making a Division I college team as a walk-on is somewhat rare, but to make two teams as a walk-on is very rare.Such is the goal of Arundel's Casey Trout, a three-year varsity performer in baseball and football. Trout hopes to make the University of Maryland football and baseball teams next year as a walk-on."They're going to give me a chance to make the football team as a punter and the baseball team as an infielder," said Trout. "I really believe I can do it and am looking forward to it."

Charles H. Trout, former president of Washington College who recognized that historic Chestertown and the surrounding Chesapeake Bay region were a natural "learning laboratory" for students, died of myelodysplastic syndrome, a rare blood disorder, Wednesday at a hospital in Bryn Mawr, Pa. He was 70. It was during his tenure at the college, from 1990 to 1995, that Dr. Trout initiated the Chesapeake regional studies program, which was a forerunner of...

On Monday, the Chesapeake Executive Council signed the Chesapeake Watershed Agreement, a collaborative effort across multiple states to protect and restore the Chesapeake Bay. But the celebration of the watershed agreement may be premature. Down the road in Congress there is an effort under way to strip the protections of the Clean Water Act from small headwater streams that feed the bay with cold, clean water. The federal government recently proposed a rule to clarify a politically charged Supreme Court ruling which undermined 30 years of protection of the Clean Water Act for small headwater streams.

Midway through winter, a chilly fog surrounded Theaux Le Gardeur's shop. Hardly anyone would be out on the Gunpowder River that day, he said. But he didn't need the river or sunlight. He stood behind his fly-fishing store clutching three rods: graphite, glass and bamboo. One by one, he tossed them back with his forearm and flicked them forward, eliciting the characteristic swish of fly line cutting through air. Each rod carried the line, bounced back quickly and delivered the fly far ahead of Le Gardeur, depositing the insect imitations onto the slick grass next to Backwater Angler.

Last year's American League Most Valuable Player race was one of the most contested in recent years, stoking a debate between two distinct schools of thought about the basis of baseball's highest individual award. This season, Orioles first baseman Chris Davis entered contention for the honor with eye-popping power and run-production numbers that were unparalled this year. But when the 2013 AL MVP was announced Thursday night, Davis' bid to become the first Orioles player to win the award in 22 years fell short to last year's top two candidates.

Recently, a routine screening of trout being raised by the Department of Natural Resources found a small group of fish that had been infected with whirling disease, which can lead to fish being unable to feed and susceptible to predation.Whirling disease, according to DNR, is caused by a protozoan parasite that attacks cartilage in the head where the fish's balance is controlled. Once infected, a fish may begin to whirl or chase its tail and be unable to function normally.The disease, which was isolated in a group of fish that had been temporarily placed in net pens on the North Branch of the Potomac River, is not a threat to humans and cannot be transmitted from fish to fish.

Some trout remain in a Cecil County trout stream that was polluted by the blowout of a dam under construction in December, but there are no signs of hatchlings within a mile or more of the accident site, state biologists said yesterday. The accident at the Woodlawn Landfill Superfund site near Rising Sun sent tons of rock and sediment pouring into the unnamed stream, considered one of Maryland's prime breeding grounds for brown trout. The sediment has drifted nearly two miles downstream, covering gravel beds where trout were expected to spawn, said Steve Early, associate director of freshwater fisheries for Maryland's Department of Natural Resources.

OK, I really don't know whether Adam Jones and Mike Trout would actually vote for each other if it came down to one or the other starting in center field in the All-Star Game, and a couple of votes probably wouldn't make much difference with them locked in a tight battle to be the top vote-getter among American League outfielders. Here's what I do know: Jones is a big fan of Trout and vice versa, both making that clear while the Angels were in town this week. “He's a great guy," Trout said on Tuesday.

When he charges onto the infield grass, makes that barehanded pickup and throws a rocket to first, Manny Machado reminds Orioles fans of a superstar third baseman of yesteryear. When he breaks out of the batter's box on a liner into the gap and hits first base in full stride on his way to another double, Machado shows old-school hustle. And when he quietly strolls through clubhouse, proudly wearing his "Hakuna Machado" T-shirt while nodding to teammates, and, occasionally, breaking out an infectious smile, he flashes a necessary balance of confidence and respect.
