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.

There's something fishy going on in Dundalk, and Michael Francis is thrilled about it.Mr. Francis was the driving force behind yesterday's first stocking of Dundalk's Stansbury Pond with 500 rainbow trout. An avid angler, Mr. Francis lives two blocks from the man-made pond in Stansbury Park near Lynch Cove and fantasized about its prospects as a trout fishing hole during walks with his three children along the water's edge."I've always thought of this as being a nice place to fish trout," said Mr. Francis, who has lived in Stanbrook for 10 years.

Jules Verne once wrote about the improbability of anyone going around the world in 80 days.These days, were a jet to travel 500 mph nonstop, one could pass round the world at the equator 38 1/2 times in 80 days.But if the mode of travel is a sailing vessel, then passing round the world in fewer than 80 days becomes an accomplishment of some note.Last year, a group of four Frenchmen and Cam Lewis of Lincolnville, Maine, set out to break Verne's mythical standard and win the Trophee Jules Verne.

With sunlight streaming down on their backs, the two ducks appear so lifelike they could waddle off the easel.But wildlife artist Louis F.X. Frisino isn't done with them. He puts his glasses on, dunks a thin brush in a glass jug, swishes the wet bristles in white watercolor on the palette. He wipes excess paint off on a rag, and then feathers the tiniest line on one of the ducks. He scrutinizes the waterfowl and delicately lays on another white slit. It's as if he is painting these ducks feather by feather.

PERCH FISHINGA week ago Tuesday, the yellow perch were scarce in the Hillsboro area of Tuckahoe Creek on the Eastern Shore. In the week and a half since, the moon has come full and the perch fishing has picked up.Reports from the Patuxent and Blackwater rivers also show the run of yellow perch gathering momentum.The best baits to use are grass shrimp or small minnows on small hooks beneath bobbers.Try getting your bait into deeper areas on the slacker edges of the current. The perch are headed upstream to spawn and will be following the path of least resistance.
