M^ON., 9 A.M. to 8:50 P.M. l-'lnh are This is an ideal lime of year for anglers because fish are biting in manv waters, a< cording In recent reports. .Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Ralhgeb ol Codlrey fished for two days in Kentucky Lake near C.jlbertsville, Ky., week and landed 84 rrappie. A two-hour fishing trip in Chickahama Sloui^h near Ciraf- lon recently hy Donald Rogers, liTLTi Residence St., and Leo Pohlman of (iorlfrey resulted in a score of numerous pan fish which the men returned to the water because they weie not. in a mood In clean them. Rogers related that they txied casting anrl failed lo receive a strike. The fish were interested in live bail only, including some small bass which sli'iick. on worms. Thomas Waters of ^Jerseyville landed a I! 1 ., pound fiddler catfish and four carp weighing up lo three pounds in the Sny River near Mo'/.ier while fishing with his parents. Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Waters, Sunday. While wailing for Ihe fish to bile, the group found a bucket full of mushrooms also. Angler Injured A multiple-barbed casting plug can inflict a painful wound, related Miss Alice Scbreiber, S^G K. Killb St. She and her brother Waller were fishing in waters west of Alton Sunday when she attempted to cast a plug which hooked into her arm instead,Waller pushed the hook on Ihrough part of the flesh and cut Ihe barb oif before removing it. They had landed some fish on live hail prior to the incident but returned home at once to dress Ihe wound. .'Mushroom A mushroom hunt al Lockhaven Sunday by Mr. and Mrs. Tom Harris, Michael Dr.. Godfrey, resulted in a record find for Mrs. Harris. .She found a mushroom which still measured five inches in diameter on a stem three inches wide and eicht inches long after it had dried for three' days. Her husband displayed the mushroom to many of his friends who were more Ihan impressed. Speedboats and their waves have discouraged Charles Crolley, 859 Washington Ave.. from doing much fishing lalely. He voiced Ihe opinion of many others that the boats dislrub and spoil Ihe fishing often. However, he plans to fish in the future in waters inaccessible to speedboats. W. V. Mel/ger, 2.10 Alby St., explains his lack of interst in' water activities by saving that he hasn'l lost anything in the river and therefore hasn't anything (o find out there. 1'er.soiiHl >'o)es E. J.
