SATURDAY, MAY 1, 1954 ALTON EVENING TELEGRAPH ^^ fc _^Jjjt ^^|^|g|^|_«fjM| FAGS TURKS . Ripple* Current Events on Alton Lake and RoamiV the Pitsa Country With HAROLD IRAN0 Fish Bit Ir, Unison The bluegill in Chickahama Slough on Calhoun Point near Grafton are biting, reported Mrs. Charles Keller of Grafton. Early this week three East Alton men landed 55 bluegill in the slough. They said that each time one of them got a .bite, all of them would get a bite and land a fish. The men were Elmer Wright of 93 Dell Ave., Fred Button of 165 E. Drive Ave., and Clarence Bond of 209 Lincoln Ave. Bass in lakes near Grafton are striking short, related E. P. Parkes, 2359 Viruen Ave. He found that he was able to land an average of one fish out of six strikes on several trips there this year because the fish are missing the casting plugs. There are too many pleasure boals navigating Piasa Creek on weekends to allow good fishing, according to Allen (Mac) Weiss, 632 Summit Ave., who failed to get a nibble while on a recent fishing trip there. Grapple were striking close to the bank in Scotch Jimmy Island Lake, near Clifton Terrace a few days ago for A. (Bob) Watson, 2323 Mound Ave., and Don Chappell, 946 Danforth Ave. The men had fished for several hours before the fish began x biting and then they landed more than 30 of them in I'/fe hours. Launching Site Improved The launching ramp at the Alton Motorboat Club was lengthened farther into the water recently so that cars pulling boat trailers could gain more momentum to climb the steep incline. The club is unable to provide dock space for all members, some of whom launch their boats each time they are used. Conservation Plan Glen D. Palmer, Conservation Department director, has urged that Sportsmen's Clubs and other civic organizations help the Boy Scouts of America with their 1954 conservation plan to prevent forest fires, conserve soil, water, forests, grass anJ wildlife. His department has been swamped with requests from Scout councils for assistance in their program and has responded wherever possible. "We have been limited in helping the scouts because of a personnel shortage," Palmer said. "Actually, the scouts : can be of a great help in local projects, and under, the direction of local sportsmen can accomplish much Vr-:'i-yr;»^-,T ......-, • in conservation. Such supervision will provide also some educational and constructive work for the youthful leaders." Some organizations have already enlisted .he manpower of the scouts and htve accomplished such projects as planting trees and multiflora roses, building dams and aid fish life and clean- Ing streams.
