Copyright 1967 Blacker the Flih — Better the Day for Fishing Fishermen Are Restless LAKE NORFORK RECEIVED ITS INITIAL; STOCKING of rainbow trout in mid-January, • when 4,000 trout were released at Robinson Point. All of the fish were eight to .10 inches in length. , In early February biologists released 1,000 tagged rainbow trout in the same location. These fish were aU &k inches long. Studies by Arkansas Game and Fish biologists have revealed that Lake Norfork is not ideally suited for trout due to decaying matter which uses up the oxygen supply in the deep cold Water. On the other hand, Lake Bull Shoals is well suited for trout. The trout released were part of an experiment to determine to what extent Lake Norfork will support rainbow trout. WALLEYE FISHERMEN ARE GETTING IMPATIENT since the fish isn't cooperating on scheduje. Last year's spawning run, especially on South Fork of the Little Red River in Greer's Ferry Lake's headwaters, came off at about this time. Andr'eW Hulsey, chief of the Commission's.Fisheries Divi- siftn, said that the.walleye generally does not spawn until the water temperature reaches at least 50 degreeSi Water temperatures are still running in the mid to upper 46's at present. • •. * * * CONSTRUCTION WORK BEING CARRIED OUT TO deepen the Shoreline has created double benefits for bank fishermen at Tri-County Lake near Fotdyce. For'the past two months personnel with the Commission's Cbnstructiori-Ehgineeririg Division .have, been dredging the shoreline between the dam and jetties protruding On the eastern side of the lake. These jetties, or finger piers, were previously built to benefit bank fishermen. The shoreline area had become overrun with undesired Vegetation and water Was hardly more than ankle deep. Ma-. : terials "from the excavation, held during the low-water or drawdown stage, we're' used to build more jetties. The water depth along the shoreline oh the eastern side is now between two to three feet deep.
