This spring's trout fishing has been a success throughout Carroll County's stocked put 'n take streams and ponds. Back during the early morning hours of opening day, I joined about 75 anglers ringing the shoreline of Westminster Pond and it appeared that someone was always reeling in a rainbow.I arrived at the popular Westminster fishing hole a few minutes after the 5: 30 a.m. official starting time and impaled a Berkley Trout Nibble on a gold #10 hook. After pinching on a small lead shot about 8 inches up the 4-pound test mono line, I made a short cast and allowed the line to sit. In no time at all the line began to move and I took up slack and belatedly set the hook.

At 5:30 a.m. Saturday, March 28, thousands of avid Harford County trout fishermen will gather along the banks of Deer Creek and the Little Gunpowder River for the opening of trout season -- and the first real chance for anglers to combat the cabin fever that has gripped so many of them.During the next three months, more than 17,000 catch-sized rainbow trout will be stocked in county streams and Forest HillPond. Although these fish rarely exceed 12 inches, they're considered real trophies to local anglers who suffered through winter.

Something positive resulted from last month's battle with Mother Nature: more places to catch trout this fall. More than 27,000 trout will be stocked throughout the state starting this month. Most of the trout will be either rainbow or golden trout weighing an average of one pound each. There will also be about 1,500 brown trout weighing about a pound each, as well as 300 rainbow and golden trout weighing two to three pounds each. Approximately 1,000 additional trout will be donated by The Freshwater Institute in West Virginia, a research facility.

THERE COMES A TIME when a man must go into the wilderness and face one of Mankind's oldest, and most feared, enemies: trout. For me, that time came recently in Idaho, where I go every summer. Many people think Idaho is nothing but potato farms, but nothing could be farther from the truth: There are also beet farms. No, seriously, Idaho is a beautiful state that offers - to quote Emerson - "nature out the bazooty." This includes many rivers and streams that allegedly teem with trout. I say "allegedly" because until recently I never saw an actual trout, teeming or otherwise.

The state Department of Natural Resources may have stocked Lake Waterford with 750 farm-bred trout last month, but you couldn't prove it by the anglers at the Pasadena park this week.Doug Miller, 46, a Glen Burnie carpenter, said he was catching "nothing but a suntan" yesterday, and his experience was repeated by several others.Randy Tobin, 42, an experienced fisherman, was introducing his 10-year-old daughter, Randi, to the sport, but not having much luck."I showed her how to cast a rod, how to bait, but she hasn't caught a fish yet," he said.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources is proposing changes in non-tidal fishing regulations for 1991 that would provide additional put-and-take trout fishing areas and further protect the state's wild brook and brown trout populations.The proposals would create 10 additional trout stocking areas in a total of eight counties, including three among Howard, Prince George's and Montgomery counties and a catch-and-release area restricted to the use of artificial lures at Gunpowder Falls.

THURMONT - Beyond the countless no-trespassing signs, up the poorly paved winding road, stands a 450-acre wooded parcel about to go up for auction, a retreat that has been a well-kept secret in Frederick County despite its storied history. President Herbert Hoover slept here, in a stone cottage high above a raging trout stream where he loved to perfect his fly-fishing techniques by day. Other presidents and their families fished here, too. Tricia Nixon, President Richard M. Nixon's elder daughter, reportedly spent part of her honeymoon at the retreat, sitting on the banks as she patiently watched her new husband, Edward Cox, cast his line.

Opening day for trout fishing is less than two weeks away, and the question is, how low can we go? Drought conditions are playing havoc with the stocking schedule. "We're looking at a significant alteration of the schedule, especially in Baltimore County," says Bob Lunsford, a state freshwater fisheries manager. "The Little Gunpowder is pathetic." Add Beaver Run in Carroll County and Piney Run in Baltimore County -- marginal streams during even a good year -- to the list of the pathetic.

The locations Piney Run: There aren't many citation-sized stripers in the lake, but angler David Neuwiller of Sykesville got one Wednesday. He caught a 43-inch, 29-pound, 6-oz. striper on a large shiner just off the floating dock. Crappies, 11-13 inches, and bluegills in the 10-inch range, are everywhere, says Jim Gronaw in the park office. Try tiny twister tails tipped with maggots. Largemouth bass are taking plastics and live bait. Anglers are catching a lot of small muskies in the 24-30-inch range.

Richard Brautigan achieved an immense stir in 1967 at the age of 32 with the novel "Trout Fishing in America." In the next 17 years -- until his death by suicide in 1984 -- he produced 11 novels, lots of short stories and nine volumes of poetry. For many people in the late '60s, he was a literary darling, a sort of angelic voice of what was soon to be categorized as the counterculture. "Trout Fishing" had far less to do with trout fishing than it did with the joys of early hippiness. It has sold millions of copies, in lots of languages.

About 1,500 rainbow trout found new -- and very temporary -- homes in four of the city's streams and ponds yesterday morning. The state Department of Natural Resources stocked Patterson Park and Gwynn Oak ponds, the Jones Falls and Herring Run with trout for anglers to catch and clean for dinner. "We want them out of here ASAP," said Bob Wall, recreational programmer for the city's Department of Recreation and Parks. Wall expects all the fish to be caught within two weeks; the four areas will be stocked again in late April.
