Mississi]>pi County fishermen's favorite reluge. has witnessed capacity crowds just about every day. according to Joe Whitlcy, state ame warden for Mississippi County. According to Mr. Whitley's statement parking space at the lake has been almost nil for the late comers on Wednesday aflernoons and weekends. Rainy weather didn't help fishing over last weekend, but Mr. Whilley said the take should be In swell shape lhe coming weekend. Witli the opening of bass season last week and the closing of business concerns on Wednesday after- 1100115 slarting the week before, business nicn of Blytheville hung out their "gone fishing" signs, cranked up lhe jalopies and headed West for the open waters Hig Lake and surrounding barrow pits. Among the hundreds °f anglers that sought out the nimble members of the finny Iribe at the lake was "Uncle Mike" Mcroney. Mike Indians, 5 to 3, turning the i wa: •ick on a single by Bob Dillinger, | who promotes the local wrestling ouble by Paul Lehncr. and a j program during hours when he isn't weilcling a rod at the lake °r practicing his boat-making hobby, has reported the limit in bass anil crappie on several occasions.

The lodgers came from behind to score lie tying and whining runs in the l-venth Inning without mnking hit, using instead three walks, J [orccout and two bunts that pit- lier Dutch Lconanl fielded poorly. iTlic St. Louis Cardinals got six- lit pitching from George Munger |]<\ shut out the Pittsburgh Pirates 1 to 0.

Rodney Banister, Bill Banister, F. E. Warren, and Tom Heaton. The m;ijorily of Ihese men reported good calches. Fishing in other sections of the state was reported good with the exception of the lower section of the Ouachlta River, which is reported muddy and lishlng is very poor. A recent meeting of the game and fish commissions of Arkansas and Missouri failed lo do more than start the ball rolling toward better fishing regulations at Norfork Lake near Mountain Home. Member. 1 ; of the commission from \ ^ .the two slates met at Norfolk and talked the situation over, but came to only one conclusion, to meet again this Fall. Fishing must be pretty good up there, too. The main objective of the two commissions is to get the game reasons to run concurrently. Missouri anglers got the jump on Ark J ansas fishermen in the Norfork section and the Arkansas sportsmtn immediately sounded their disap 1 - proval. j Very few reports have been received from other waters hi the | vicinity o[ Blytheville, but. lishlnfi is good in the Armorel Lake area.
