With silent splendor, it slices serpentine through a sophisticated city and its surrounding suburbs. It offers its visitors a sylvan serenity, a place to escape the headlines and the deadlines of everyday living. It is the Wissahickon Creek, a waterway that meanders from central Montgomery County through Fairmount Park before it empties into the Schuylkill between Manayunk and East Falls. And it offers some prime places to tangle with trout. "When you're along the Wissahickon Creek, you can kind of blot the city out of your mind," said Sally Corl, the state Fish Commission waterways conservation officer for Philadelphia County.

It was 6:30 a.m., the first day of trout fishing season, and the countdown was on - only 90 minutes to go before the first fishing line hit the water. Along the banks of the Ridley Creek, the Chester Creek and the Darby Creek early Saturday, small clusters of anglers huddled together, talking about who would catch the first fish, and who would get the biggest. It was drizzling in the chilly pre-dawn darkness, but that didn't seem to bother the waiting groups. The anglers waiting by the Ridley Creek on Knowlton Road in Middletown Township included Danny Massi, a machinist from Chester, who said that for the last 14 years, he has started trout season at the same spot.

The Lower Merion-Narberth Watershed Association is looking for volunteers willing to roll up their sleeves and get wet. At noon Saturday, the association will begin planting about 7,000 brown- trout eggs in Mill Creek. The boxes that hold the eggs, Vibert boxes, will be placed in areas of the stream that are well-aerated from consistent water flows. Watershed members will work with volunteers to map out placement of the boxes, which hold 500 eggs apiece. Volunteers will cover the boxes with large stones and anchor them to form egg beds for the trout.

From the crowded creeks of Philadelphia and its suburbs to the seldom-fished headwater streams of northern Pennsylvania, anglers will fan out across the state Saturday for the opening of trout season. If you have never fished for trout before or are a veteran who wants to brush up on the basics, here are some facts you need to know: Anglers are allowed to keep eight trout daily on most waters during the regular season, which begins at 8 a.m. Saturday and runs through Sept.

Anglers will enjoy a bonus of extra stocked fish when the Pennsylvania Fish and Boat Commission begins its second round of spring trout-stocking this week. Officials learned that they had 150,000 additional yearling trout on hand after taking inventory at the agency's 10 hatcheries, said Dan Tredinnick, a commission spokesman. The 8- and 9-inch fish exceed the minimum legal size limit (7 inches). Each year, the commission produces fish above its planned stocking target to ensure that it is able to replace trout that die in hatcheries before stocking commences.

Arms talks gave way to trout fishing yesterday morning, and when Secretary of State James A. Baker 3d and Soviet Foreign Minister Eduard A. Shevardnadze climbed from the river, it was Yanks 3, Reds 0. Baker, an avid fisherman, stood chest-deep in the Snake River and caught and released three cutthroat trout in the space of five minutes. Shevardnadze stood on the bank and struggled with the rod lent to him by the National Park Service, trying to master the art of spin-casting. He awkwardly plunked several casts in the grass at his feet.

Calendars notwithstanding, spring for thousands of people in Southeastern Pennsylvania began at 8 a.m. on April 16. It was the opening day of trout season, and anglers of all ages descended on waterways throughout Bucks, Delaware, Montgomery, Chester and Philadelphia Counties. Pennsylvania issues more than 1 million fishing licenses a year, according to the state Fish Commission. But the number of anglers might be twice that, the commission said, because children younger than 16 don't need licenses and a number of Pennsylvanians don't bother to obtain the $12 one-year license, choosing to take their chances that they won't be caught.

The trout season is off the hook. Right before Pennsylvania anglers wade into the streams tomorrow, the state has decided the trout aren't too toxic to eat. Just last week, officials revealed that thousands of hatchery-raised trout already stocked into waterways - including some in Montgomery and Chester counties - were tainted with polychlorinated biphenyls, known as PCBs. But after running more tests, the state said yesterday the trout are safe to put on the table - despite traces of PCBs in trout shipped to Philadelphia, Bucks, Delaware and other counties.

The start of trout season is an annual rite of spring that will involve more than a million Pennsylvanians tomorrow, beginning at 8 a.m. But trout fishing these days is not the kind of thing described in classical outdoors literature, and nothing like days long gone but not forgotten. Decreasing water quality and increasing pressure by anglers have created a put-and-take, hatchery-oriented fishery that some feel is a triumph of quantity over quality. Stocking fish has become necessary in most public waters because trout do not produce themselves in great number naturally in these surroundings.

MIKE TROUT'S ascension from promising prospect to multitalented major league All-Star to the game's greatest current player took all of about 12 months. And the Millville Meteor's meteoric rise happened nearly 2 1/2 years ago. But baseball's award voters and the public relations machine that was The Official Retirement of Derek Jeter Throughout All of Major League Baseball meant Trout apparently had to wait his turn for validation. All Trout did in his first two full seasons was hit .324 with a 976 OPS, hit 57 home runs, steal 82 bases and score 238 runs.

AMERICAN LEAGUE Most Valuable Player Mike Trout, of the Los Angeles Angels, a native of Millville, N.J., will be honored as the Outstanding Pro Athlete of the Year by the Philadelphia Sports Writers Association at its 111th annual banquet on Jan. 16 at Cherry Hill's Crowne Plaza Hotel. Trout, who has not yet confirmed his attendance, also won the award 2 years ago after he was named the AL's Rookie of the Year. The 23-year-old, who became the youngest unanimous MVP pick in major league history, was a huge crowd favorite in May when he played here against the Phillies.

This baseball season was something different for Mike Trout. The Los Angeles Angels outfielder hit for more power than in his first two seasons. He struck out more often and stole fewer bases. Trout drove in more runs. He generated more extra-base hits. He flourished in big games, leading the Angels to the best record in baseball and the American League West title. Trout, the 23-year-old Millville High School graduate, was a slightly different player in 2014. He was something else as well: the American League's most valuable player.

MINNEAPOLIS - The game's best young hitter smashed 22 homers in the season's first 90 games - more than any of the 10 sluggers who swung in Monday night's Home Run Derby - but Mike Trout was nothing more than a spectator for it all. A reluctant one at that. "A lot of guys are giving me crap about it, not doing it," Trout said. "But eventually, I'll probably do it. " The Millville native insinuated that Angels manager Mike Scioscia discouraged Trout from participating. Trout was never selected.

AS WE ALL know by now, either 4,000 or 6,000 or 8,000 people (depending upon the enthusiasm of the narrator) - perhaps approaching 25 percent of the population of Millville, N.J. - purchased tickets for a ballgame last night. With Mike Trout coming home to play the Phillies for the first time, this fact was well-publicized. As such, any self-respecting professional burglar with an Internet connection was aware of this migration and undoubtedly headed to Millville, a caravan of nondescript panel trucks driving south on Route 55 as a caravan of enthusiastic minivans drove north.

THE HARDEST part about being a parent may be imparting wisdom. Your logic could be rock solid, your delivery empathetic and on point, but the words just don't have the intended impact. So when Raul Ibanez took his 12-year-old son to meet his favorite player this spring, there was an ulterior motive. "Did you do pushups when you were a kid?" he asked Mike Trout. "Because I'm very big into the fitness thing," said the 41-year-old Ibanez, now in his 19th major league season.

Mike Trout woke up Tuesday at home. In a way, Trout ended one of the more eventful days of his professional baseball career in the same place. Trout was a member of the visiting team at Citizens Bank Park as the star centerfielder for the Los Angeles Angels. But given the sea of red "Trout 27" jerseys and T-shirts in the stands, the cheers that followed the mention of his name, and all the trappings of "Millville Night" in the stadium, it surely wasn't a typical road game for the 22-year-old former Phillies fan. "I love it here," Trout said during an engaging, 30-minute news conference in the Phillies' media room.

It's late October 2020. The Chicago Cubs have just won the World Series and announced that Steve Bartman and the team's general manager, Moises Alou, will ride together in a convertible on the Magnificent Mile parade route. Meanwhile, in Philadelphia, Phillies general manager Chase Utley is trying to figure out a way to add the pieces needed to end the franchise's nine-year playoff drought. Maikel Franco is playing well at first base and J.P. Crawford has emerged as one of the best shortstops in baseball, but the Phillies need one more hitter in the middle of their lineup.

The Millville High marching band will provide the sound track before Tuesday's game at Citizens Bank Park, the first of 16 at home in a 19-game stretch for the Phillies. Thousands from Mike Trout's South Jersey hometown will flock to celebrate a homecoming. "He's one of the freaks of the game," said Phillies reliever Mike Adams, issuing one of the highest compliments a baseball player can bestow on another. There could be a few Phillies fans extending a warm greeting. Trout, who was one of them as a youngster, cannot sign with another team until after the 2020 season.

THE VICE MAYOR of a 28,000-person South Jersey town has been a Phillies season-ticketholder for 15 years. Sixty-eight years old, Jim Quinn's die-hard fandom dates back much longer; he was among those to suffer through the epic collapse of 1964. It's been some time since Quinn anticipated a game as much as he is tonight's against the Angels. Probably since the 2008 World Series, he guesses. "This is something really special," he said one afternoon last week in his hometown of Millville, N.J. "I'm getting goose bumps thinking about it. " The Angels' first trip to Philadelphia since 2008 coincides with the homecoming of baseball's best all-around player.
