Fish "Commissioner Charles -A French announced today that 233,154,987 fish of various species were distributed from the hatcheries. They include 1,380,899 trout, 375,409 bass, 3,000,000 fingerling, 21,040,- 29S pike, 143,927,920 yellow perch 784,135 hluegill sunflsh, 472,694 cat flsh, 16,043 minnows, 61,769,000 blue pike fry, 3,170 pickerel, 406,300 bullfrog tadpoles, 19,155 suckers and 24,261 miscellaneous kinds. Sucker Fishing Popular Sport HARRISBURG, Jan. 31.--With many of the outstanding sucker streams clear of Ice recently, cx- rcmely heavy catches of these fish have been made in different -icctioiis of the State, C. A. French, Commissioner of Fisheries, said today. The commissioner said that probably no fish in Pennsylvania waters is more popular with the rank and flic of fishermen than the sucker. Abundant in waters in many localities, this fish, during winter and early spring, appears on the tables of hundreds of families. Ranking as one of the best sucker streams in the State is the Juniata River, and latest reports jcccived concerning the fishing In Juniata county indicate that the catches recently made have been excellent. While many suckers caught wigh about a pound apiece on an 'ivcrage, a number well over two pounds in weight have been taken. The flesh of this ush is now firm and sweet in flavor, and although somewhat bony, these bones arc largo and easy to separate from the flesh. A catch ot five or six suckers, Commissioner French pointed out, makes a first rate meal for an average family. Most popular spots for sucker ush- ing usually arc at points ot Juncture of smaller tributaries with larger waters. The fish now have gathered in such snots in vast schools, and, on a day when they arc feeding actively, fishermen score heavy catches. In recognition of the importance of tbe sucker as a food Qsh and its popularity with the fishing public, the Fish Commission is now stocking the species in suitable waters over 14,000 having been distributee during 1937. Under recently announced creel limits, the number ol suckers which now may be legally taken in one day by an individual is 15. Still fishing with rod and line, small books and small worms for bait is the standard and favorite method for taking this species.
