e6 Cheney Free Press Thursday, August 26, 1982 First day Approximately 65 Cheney High School seniors, juniors and sophomores turned out Monday for the first practice of the new season. About 20 of those to suit up were underclassmen. Thei Blackhawks open their 1982 season at Connell on Sept. 10. Assisting Head Coach Tom Oswald this year are Joe Richer, Terry Regnler, Lincoln Bryant and Chuck Lee, as well as Eastern Washington University students Jim Mason and Steve Burman. Zorne's offensive line suffers from dro Although a last-minute deficiency showed up in the offensive line, coach Dick Zornes was generally optimistic Monday as fall football practice began at Eastern Washington University. Zornes, who has a record of 20 victories and nine defeats after three seasons as head coach at his alma mater, had 87 players suited up as the Eagles went through a pair of two-hour workouts. Twenty-five lettermen, including a dozen returning starters, were in uni- form as EWU began preparations for its opening game, a Sept. 11 date against Weber State College, in Ogden, Utah The Eagles, coming off a 7-3 season capped by a 14-13 upset of Montana, will face a 10-game schedule. Eastern is setting out in pursuit of an NCAA Division II postseason playoff berth armed with a veteran offensive backfield, several outstanding trans- fers, All-America candidate Mike Honeycutt and five freshmen who played in the East-West All-Star Game this summer. At the same time, Zornes must replace most of his offensive line which was shredded by graduation. The losses included starting tackles John Tighe, a Kodak All-American, and Walt Flatt, as well as center Brent Myers, guard Shamus Reilly and three top reserves. Transfers Jeff Kupp and David Flutts were added during the offseason and Honeycutt was converted to center from the defensive line during spring practice. However, when players gathered over the weekend, sophomore Paul Berg, a 1980 letterman who missed 1981 with a hand injury, and senior John Rothstrom were among the missing. Berg, who started most of his fresh- man season at left defensive end, had been scheduled to take Tighe's spot at quick tackle. However, at the last minute, he called Zornes and indicated that he was dropping out of the football program. Berg is a former Puyallup High School star. Rothstrom, from Newport, started at strong guard as a junior college trans- fer last fall. He was listed as the starting quick guard on the preseason depth chart. Zornes is hoping that the 6-4, 245-pound letterman will turn up. Flutts was moved over to quick tackle from the strong side. The 6'7", 255-pound transfer from USC, a fresh- man in eligibility, is a potential profes- sional prospect. Sophomore nonletter- man Aaron Voelker (Wapato) stepped in for Rothstrom. Freshmen Andy Allan (Ephrata), Jon Holland (Kent) and Dan Moriarty (Seattle) suddenly became second on the depth chart behind Flutts, Voelker and Kupp respectively. "These are good young kids, and they'll just have to get the feel of things a little sooner," Zornes said. "however, the offensive line is the only position I'm really worried about. Otherwise, we'll be all right." Blaine Wilson, the regular pacekick- er in 1980, and transfer cornerback Scott Betz (Tacoma) were the only other notable no shows. Wilson, Federal Way, was removed from the team for disciplinary reasons last fall, but launched a comeback in spring prac- tice. However, EWU has Mike Wold, all-conference punter and placekicker for Walla Walla Community College last fall, among its best transfers. Transfer offensive lineman Rich Sando (Seattle) was temporarily missing, but he was undergoing follow- up medical treatment for an ankle injury suffered early this month. As practice began, senior Jim Brit- tain, a redshirt last fall after sharing starting duties in 1980, was at quarter- back teamed with running backs Dean Brady (Port Orchard) and Mike Ander- sen (Tacoma) Kelly Roark was at split end and John Johnson, both Spokane, at flanker. All five are lettermen. Brady gamed 719 yards, most of it in seven games last fall. Andersen ran for 665 yards as EWU's MVP. Reserve tailback Jeff Haack (Seattle), who accounted for 441 yards, also is back along with starting tight end Guy Johnson (Spokane). Defensive standouts returning in- clude strong safety Mark Puyear (Granger), free safety Greg Kramer (Snohomish) and cornerback Darrell Pope, a three-year letterman from Spokane. The other cornerback, Paul Kalina, ranked second nationally in Division II punt returns, last fall.

The above fish were 16'h inches long and weighed one and a half pounds. The biologists, though, called the fish ;'small", noting that the average fish in the lake are about 19 to 20 inches long and weigh almost two pounds. Fishermen, though, should watch for open sores on the fish caused by "Larnaea" or "Anchor Worm". The parasitic copepod is spreading to trout in the lake from the goldfish population. Approximately half the goldfish in the lake are af- fected. Sores generally are found along the dorsal fins. Scholz said the parasite poses no danger to humans when the fish is properly prepared.

Opening Sept. 1-30 will be Medical Lake, West Medical Lake and North Silver Lake. Fishing, reportedly, will be good at all of the lakes and likely will continue to be good at the rest of the Cheney/Medical Lake lakes, as well. Medical Lake Approximately 4,000 to 5,000 large rainbow trout remain in Medical Lake, but fishermen are reminded that there is a limit of one fish per angler per day on the lake, which is one of the state's "selected quality fishing" lakes. Eastern Washington University Fish Biologist Allan Seholz, who is studying the lake in connection with the City of Medical Lake and the Washington State Department of Game, reported last week that the trout that have been in the lake since the end of the spring season have grown more in length than in girth, but that they still should be capable of putting up a strong fight. Fish last spring averaged 14-plus inches. Scholz said there probably was a trout population of 8.000 to 10,000 fish when the early season opened in April and that some 2,500 to 3,000 probably were harvested. Late last summer, a die-off occurred at the lake. This summer, though, with a decrease in fish numbers, biologists are more hopeful that there will not be any die-off. Last year's late-summer die-off was attributed to the large number of fish eating themselves out of house and home, so to speak, by almost eliminat- ing the daphnia population in the lake. Daphnia is a planton upon which the trout feed. Scholz noted that there was a recov- ery of daphnia early this year with the reduced fish population and a corres- ponding improvement of water quality. Daphnia, he said, feed primarily on fine vegetation matter in the lake. However, another factor in the lake may threaten the future of the trout fishery, and that is the influence of growing populations of bass and gold- fish. Both also feed on daphnia, but to a lesser extent than does the trout, said Scholz. Most of the bass in Medical Lake are five to six inches long, but a few bass in the two-pound range have been seen. Goldfish in the lake are quite large-- BACK TO SCHOOL SPECIAL HAWAIIAN SUB SANDWICH HAM, PINEAPPLE AND SWISS CHEESE $1.89 (0ODd Au0 26 ,o Sept. 1, 1982) (COME SAMPLE OUR DESSERT PIZZA THIS WEEKEND) DORNERS OF CHENEY SUN:THURS. 3 to 9 p.m. FRI.-SAT. 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. 1113 First - Cheney - Phone orders 235-5114 402 2nd St. RA TCLIFFE 235-6238 Cheney 456-8759 Spokane FREE LUBE JOB IlL & FILTER CHANGE Good through August 31, 1982 Bill's new boat house Bill Butler's Boat House on North Silver Lake may expand into this new facility in the nearby parking lot as the late fishing season gets underway Sept. 1. Mrs. Dotty Butler noted the store will feature ice for the first time this fall for fishermen intent on keeping their catch fresh. over six inches--and are expanding dramatically in numbers. Seholz, though, said he is hopeful of removing a large number of the goldfish next spring on the north end of the lake where the colorful fish congregate all during the winter. Since Medical Lake is a "quality" fishing lake, no live bait is allowed. Only lures with barbless hooks may be used. "Very few people fish illegally," said Scholz, reporting that heavy enforce- ment by game officials has dramatic- ally cut down the number of fishing violations. Upon studying the stomach contents of fish this spring, Scholz said that few fish were found with any illegal gear in them. Two years ago, when the lake first opened for fishing, the story was different. "Two years ago, we found all sorts of illegal gear," said Seholz. "You name it, and we found it!" Scholz said that monitoring of the lake will continue through the fall to see exactly what does happen to the daph- nia population. Then, alternatives for the lake's future will be discussed with the Department of Game and the people of Medical Lake, he said. In the meantime, though, he encour- ages fishermen to fish at the lake. "The people should be happy with the fish they catch," he concluded. West Medical Lake Action on West Medical Lake is expected to be perhaps as good or even better than in past late seasons. Rees Bates, owner of the West Medical Lake Resort, reported that the crowd of fishermen attracted to the lake during the spring season was down from what it was other years. Limits of nice fish, though, were caught up until the close of the early season. "We should have a heavy carry- over," said Bates, referring to fish planted last year for this spring. Trout fry planted this spring also will average from seven to eight inches long and are reportedly "feeding heavily" on insect hatches the past few weeks. "I think we'll have an excellent September," said Bates.

Bill Butler, owner of Bill Butler's Boat House, said that the yearling trout should be 14 to 15 inches in length when season opens, with the spring plant averaging six inches. Brown and grey nymps will do the trick on most of the fish; as will the standard bait of marshmallows and eggs. Butler said the "Tedrow Tantillizer" fly, designed by Wayne Tedrow at the Boat House and for sale there, is one of the best bets. Williams Lake After fishing for trout closes Sept. 30 at the rest of the area lakes, fishermen will be able to continue their sport at Williams Lake. The lake will remain open until Oct. 27, which is the date set by te Department of Game for the trealment of the lake with rotenone. Treatment of the lake is to remove unesireable species of fish, primarily tench. Fishing, i tough, according to Brad McHenry Of Bunker's Resort and Chuck /Clark of Williams Lake Resort, has remained good this summer. The smaller trout found opening day have put on some size and weight and now are averaging over 10 inches. Fishing at Williams Lake, as with many lakes slows down in hot weather, but limits have been coming from the lake all summer to those who fish early and late in the day. Trollers, especially, are doing well with two to three colors of leaded line out. Green Carreys, black leaches and other" lures with worms have been working, said McHenry.
