BY CHI~ISTOPHER HUBER BY BOB TAYLOR he alarm clock rings at 4 a.m., the coffee pot perco- lates a half-hour later and then most local anglers, after a gulp of coffee and a bite of toast, will trek to Pine Lake in Sammamish or to their favorite lake for the April 25 Opening Day of lowland lake fishing. Opening Day has become one of the state's most popular sports attractions. In fact, state Department of Fish and Wildlife officials expect nearly 300,000 anglers to cast a line this weekend. In preparation for a banner opening day, the department has stocked more than 19.8 million trout in lakes and streams throughout the state, including those planted in wa- ters that opened earlier this spring or are open year-round. Locally, the most popular opening day fishing hole will be Pine Lake. Each year, Pine Lake attracts hundreds of an- glers, some who fish on the lake in small aluminum boats, canoes or inflatable rafts, from the shore or from the dock. Some anglers get to the lake before the crack of dawn. Of- ten, anglers arriving at about 5 a.m. meet other anglers leaving with their limit of five trout. The dock gets packed quickly, so anglers are advised to get there as early as possible. One important note, no gas motorboats are allowed on Pine Lake. The lake was planted with rainbow trout earlier this month. The 88-acre lake also has some brown trout and triploid trout. Triploids, which average one to one and a half pounds, are called triploid be- cause they have three sets of chromosomes instead of the normal two, making them ster- ile, It also makes the fish vora- cious feeders with the potential to grow to trophy size. Beaver Lake, also located in Sammamish, will attract an- glers, too. Beaver Lake is actu- ally a combination of three lakes linked by a canal, with two smaller lakes on either end See OPENING DAY, Page C3 BY CHRISTOPHER HUBER Skyline High School Junior Heidi Hopp wraps a splint around Ferndale soph- omore Kathryn Bailey's leg at the speed-wrapping station. BY CHRISTOPHER HUBER Skyline High School sports med- ic'me students buzzed around the lobby at the Redmond Marriott Hotel on April 17, answering ques- tions and directing students and teachers to various rooms. They had prepared for months to;host the annual high school sports medicine seminar that brought together 600 students from about 40 schools in Washing- ton, Oregon, California and as far away as Kansas. Going Green in the Medical Scene was the theme of the 2009 WaShington Vocational Sports Medicine Association Competition and Symposium. "It's a chance for high school programs to have a chance to put skills and knowledge to the test against other schools," said Cheryl Reed, event organizer and Skyline sports medicine teacher. The two-day event began with a video Skyline students created to in- troduce the idea of reducing waste in athletic training programs. Prac- rices as simple as turning off com- puters and lights at night, using wa- ter bottles rather than throwaway cups and filling water coolers with only what the team needs were some of the features points. "The goal really is to get 500 kids, not from just Washington, to- gether and show them all the other kids who are interested in sports medicine," said Mike Fine, president of the association. "It's student-designed and driven to empower students to lead and test their knowledge." In addition to the various skills tests and training sessions, the event featured speakers from the Redmond Fire Department and other health and physical training careers. The students spent much of the time participating in skills tests, such as CPR and wrapping splints for broken bones. "It opens you up to different op- portunities. It's eye-opening," said Skyline student Toni Scarcello. "It's cool, because you've got all these sophomores, juniors, seniors interested in the same thing. It's like a Star Wars convention, but a little cooler than that." Fine said Washington state has one of the stronger high school sports medicine programs in the nation. The organization began holding the competition and sym- posium in the Yakima area in 1992 with about 10 member schools. Currently, the organization has 45 member schools, he said. "Because we're as big as we are, that's why schools are coming from California," Fine said. Reach Reporter Christopher Huber can be reached at 392-6434, ext. 242, or chu- ber@isspress.com.
