S o r i n g d a l e Sport Shop reports that Russell and Junior Bynum brought in two limits of blacks.

R.C. Record from Enid, Oklahoma, took a ten and one-half pound German Brown trout and a 7W pounder of the same kind. He caught numerous four and five pound rainbows and one seven pound rainbow. Bill Olliverson, former owner of the resort and presently a part-time guide there, caught a thirteen and one-fourth pound rainbow using a cray-. fish. The water has been high but the engineers may lower it this weekend. The White River has been lieavily slocked with both small and two pound rainbows this week, according to Stu Stetson, present owner of the resort. Woolworth's Sporting Goods Department in the Northwest Arkansas Plaza between Faye 11 e v i 11 e and Springdale reports good' bass catches between 5 and 6 a.m. the water is reportedly clearing up near Gordon Davis's place on Point Twelve on Beaver Lake. Gordon' Farmington, Jaycees tournament champion, says the White Bass are surfacing near his place; they are scattered but large. '. Dobber's Bait Shop on Highways 3 and 7 near Pine 'Creek Reservoir in Southeastern Oklahoma reports that Dobber has been bringing in quite a few bass, and some ·'of his customers have taken rea] good ones. Some crappie ·are being caught in the area. Dobber takes parties on both Lake Hugo and Pine Creek. The bass are taking grape fire-tail and grape-chartreuse- tail Creme worms. Some large channel catfish are being brought in to the shop. -When the fishing reporter called, Dobber had gone fishing, but his wife, Mary :Harmon, was able to pass .along a good report. Many fish are being taken from the schools of small bass which ·are foraging on the surface of the "hot" new Oklahoma lakes. : OKLAHOMA STREAMS · The Glover River continues to fall and is hardly floatable now. but like many other small Oklahoma and Arkansas streams, it is now just right for wading and fishing. Light tackle and tiny lures are best in the clear water. '.· The Kiarnichi River is also low and about right for wading in the headwaters area. Bui it is floatable further downstream. The Boggy River below Lake Atoka Dam is getting lower and is still muddy, but local anglers arc still managing to take a few fish from it. Evansville Creek in Northeastern Oklahoma and North- west Arkansas is almost perfect for wading now, although the larger holes on the Oklahoma side are too . deep to wade clear through. Kentucky spotted bass are biting in the stream this week. The Barron Fork of the Illinois River is falling and clearing, leaving some pretty nice bass and perch in relatively small holes. A skilled ultra-light tackle user can take many fish from such streams, throwing back his b'ass and improving their chances of growing large by using the small green sunfish and bream for food. CITY LAKES Lake Sequoyah near Fayetteville, Ark., reports Burt Rogers and John Anderson got 18 crappie one day, fifteen another day and 20 another day. Homer Crow got a limit of crappie.

Pele Honored MUNICH (AP) -- Pele, the former Brazilian World Cup soccer star, rode through the streels of Munich Thursday in an open carriage drawn by. 10 horses, a traditional Bavarian custom for honoring important guests. he fished in the Elberta Open on Dardanelle last Sunday. He missed 18th place by a few ounces, but his partner was eighth.. Top money was $252. The largest fish was over six pounds. Most fish were taken on spinner baits. Worms and crank baits did hot produce very well in the muddy water. The hot weather hurt the fishermen and the falling water put the fish off their feed. Foster predicts that during the next two weeks tile water in Dardanelle will likely be stabilizing and clearing and fishing for black bass should be good there. Bob Carnes of Wheeler Motor Company took, a limit of black bass last Sunday. He says try a short worm on windy banks on Beaver Lake. He caught some in windy pockets. Where the water is being muddied by the wind the bass are hanging in near the shoreline, despite the bright sunlight. Early mornings Bob uses a seven inch Rebel with a broken back on long shallow points, where the bass are chasing shad. Bob took five or six small Kenlcuk- ies on steep bluff points using a three-eights ounce Arkie jig with green pork frogs. Bob recently finished a close second in the Farmington Jaycees Bass Tournament on Beaver Lake, BULL SHOALS Wallace Lea of Powersite, Mo., Bull Shoals guide and consistent money winner in National B.A.S.S. Tournaments reports that the'water in his part of Bull Shoals is clearing and warming up. Bass are being taken oh small top water lures such as "the Tiny Torpedo. The points are producing a few bass for worm fishermen. Spinner haits are not producing for Wallace at present. Wallace, who earns $50 for each day of guiding on Bull Shoals, reports that this has been a good year for bass up his way. He expects' night fishing to pick up now, despite the relatively high water. The upper reaches of the Mulberry River produced a lot of big black perch and a throw-back limit of small- mouth bass (brownies) for the fishing reporter, Bill Kennan and Noble Dallison. The Mulberry is now too low for easy floafing. Lee's Creek near Arkansas 59 is low and wading fishing Is good. WAR EAGLE War Eagle Cove Resort on Beaver reports that Don Barber and family caught a limit of black bass up to about three pounds. The Barbers used lop water lures.
