Everyone on Mallard Lake appeared enthusiastic over the jjumber of fish the lake is producing, even though the size of the fish remain small. The lake was stocked recently', and the fish have not yet reached full size, but as time passes, authorities from the Arkansas Fish and Game Commission predict that Mallard Lake will be one of the best fishing areas in the state. (Courier News Photo) Daily Record Weather U. S. Weather Bureau * Agricultural Service Reiser, Ark. General Weather Features — A cool Pacific front moved into the- state during the afternoon and evening hours Sunday. It has weakened considerably and now lies near stationary across southeast Arkansas. There is a possibility of a wave development on this front and showers and a few thundershowers .will likely spread back, into the southeast half of the state tonight and Tuesday. Weather Effects on Agriculture — Soils are still too wet for field work in most of the delta. The north delta missed the heavier rains of the weekend and this helped somewhat to reduce soil moisture in that area. Freezing temperatures of late last week in .north Arkansas caused spotty damage to peach blooms. Some orchards suffered heavily from the below-freezing lemperatures while others had only minor damage. In the Bald Knob area strawberry blooms that were open were killed by 31-degree temperatures and frost. However, only a small percent of the blooms were open and heavy damage was averted for the time being. The prospect of critically low temperatures appears to be slim for most of ihis week. Cool wet soils will continue to be the biggest worry in the delta.
