Fishing Report By AUBREY SHEPHERD Anyone interested in fishing in a BASS tournament for the benefit of children who are victims of cerebral palsy may call Ed Oliver at 675-3389 in Booneville, Arkansas, or simply show up at the Waveland Park on Blue Mountain Lake at 6:00 a.m. tomorrow (Saturday morning June 28). One may bring his own partner, and entry fee will be only $10.00 for two persons and their boat. Dobber Harmon, guide and owner of Pine Creek Guide Service and Dobber's Bait Shop on highways three and seven in Rattan, Okla., reports that bass are now schooling on Pine Creek Reservoir and ttat quick limits of blacks are common now. By culling the many small fish which strike from the schools, a person may take home a pretty nice string of fish in a day. The larger fish are being taken on worms,' however, says Dobber. For $40.00 Dobber will take a party of two fisherman on an all day trip. He says his aren't short days. He'll stay with you from daylight to dark if you choose. D. C. James of Mulberry. Ark., reports that fishing for catfish is still good near the Ozark Lock and Dam on the Arkansas River. Mr. James recommends using shad for bait in order to catch the large catfish. GLOVER RIVER The Glover River is low but still has adequate water for leisurely floating in the vicinity of highways three- and seven in Southeastern Oklahoma. Threatened w i t h a dam, the Glover is one of the truly beautiful rivers of the Southwest and deserves the attention of all serious lovers of canoeing, smallmouth bass fishing, and natural beauty. Mountain Fork River below the dam which creates Broken Bow Reservoir is 'still beautiful and full of fish. However, the fish apparently have a hard time spawning because of the water level's fluctuation. Downstream reservoirs provide fish for this stretch of water, apparently. Muddy Boggy Creek between Atoka and Antlers, Oklahoma, is muddy but cat- fishing is reputedly pretty good there despite the falling water levels. A few bass and large perch m a y be taken from the stream using small spinner lures. J and J Sport Shop says business is slow this week.

"As long as I've been with lis club it's' had ; a tendency to se ' to the occasion," said 3rock. "When we're in a dead own we seem to play dead iseball."
