Northwest Arkansas Times (Newspaper) - May 23, 1968, Fayetteville, Arkansas Floy Scroggins Northwett Arfcanwt TIMES, Thurt., May 23, 1968 IT Bits About Fishing By FLOY SCROGGINS After a little lull, the catfish have gone wild again. Reports of strings weighing 70 to 100 pounds are common from Hick- ory Creek and War Eagle areas. Channels up to 17 pounds and flatheads to 20 pounds are caught on trotlines baited with perch, minnows, goldfish and Wood bait. Rod and reel an glers are taking quite a few catfish using minnows, worms and chicken livers. Some muddy water came into the upper end of the lake after the rains, and that's where the catfish are plentiful. Black bass and crappie fishing is prac- tically nil in the upper reaches of the lake. In clearer water, black bass have been taking surface lures. About mid-lake they are taking all types of lures. Although much improved, crappie fishing is not what one would call real good yet. A few good strings of pound size have been caught on minnows, anc jigs- No one has reported trout fishing below Beaver Dam late- ly, but there have been some inquiries about trout fishing. When the generators are run- ning, the extra flow of wafer makes it difficult to find the holes in the river where the trout like to hang out. The gene- rators have not been running so much last week, since there is so much water in the rivers be- low Bull Shoals. By the week- end, perhaps trout fishing will be good again below Beaver. Saturday afternoon I had a hankerin' to go fishing. Thought maybe the wind would die down later. That was a big mistake, it didn't it only got stronger. We wanted to fish in a certain wooded cover where John Lei- sure and WUIard Dickson had taken eight bass on rebels, that averaged 4 IDS. apiece. Dickson and I left Hickory Creek dock about one. It was impossible to hold the boat long enough! to cast and retrieve a plug. As we came back into open water the waves were rolling high and fast. Our boat hit the cresl of each wave, and Dickson got drenched. We finally found one little cove against a westerly hill that allowed us to cast a few dozen lures. We caughl four little puny things we wouldn't string. Just couldn1 seem to get the larger ones interested. We saw two snakes jn the distance. Ray Cole and Dr. Coy Kayloi had been out and they foum the wind as disgusting as wi did. Cole hung one good one that managed to go free jus before Dr. Kaylor got the ne under it. I've heard of severa lunker bass being hung tha were never strung. John Lei sure at Hickory Creek has hai hold of two just recently. How ard Walker and Frank Steven had that experience near War Eagle Dock. Fishing is good In all the are lakes. Here in Beaver, the whit bass have spawned and ar headed back downlake. Th black bass are now in th process of spawning and hatch ing their little ones. CaUis eggs are well developed an look as though they are almos ready to be deposited. I had quite an education fish biology Saturday when visited with Tom Duncan of th Bureau of Sports Fisheries an Wildlife on their experiment. Washington Senators Snap 4-Game Losing Streak By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Mike Epstein got a red carpet reception when he arrived in Washington via the trade route from Baltimore. Frank Bertaina and Sam Bowens made the same trip and got little barge. There are several tanks, each holding a different specie of fish fry. Every three or four lays, one fish is taken out of Ihe tank, and preserved in a vial for photos and future study. The tiny fish develop eyes be- fore you could tell they are fish. As they hatch, they live a few days on the "yolk sac." When they're big enough to eat, they start feeding on plankton, and sometimes vice versa. As Mr. Duncan put it, it's survival of the fittest in miniature. Under the microscope, the plankton is a jumble of wiggling monsters of all shapes. They have names, but it would take more than an hour of Mr. Duncan's time to identify them to me. Fayetteville Lake is giving up some mighty good bass on top water lures. Catfishing is good on livers, and bushels of redear and bluegill are being caught on worms and bits of liver. Fly fishermen are having a ball with popping bugs and doll flies. Crappie fishing is im- oving here. icquoyah Lake got muddy, but clearing nicely. Crappie is e most fished for specie. Lim- s are taken almost daily on innows and jigs. The large ass are slow this year. A few atfish are caught on minnows end chicken livers. All fishing elow the darn remains good. more than a change of uniform. Wednesday night, the Sena- tors shuffled Epstein off to Buf- falo, then turned Bertaina and Bowens loose against the Chica- go White Sox. The result: A 2-0 victory that snapped Washington's losing streak at four games and took the Senators out of sole posses- sion of the American League basement. Bertaina, a stocky southpaw pitcher acquired from Balti- more in the Epstein deal last May, blanked the White Sox on two hits until the ninth inning, Four Prep Baseball Squads Advance In State Tournament PINE BLUFF, Ark.

Dwight Galloway, who tossed a no-hitter in the tournament Monday, twirled a five-hitter Wednesday as Hope downed Tyronza. Hope blew the game open in the sixth with a three- run outburst. Tyronza had scoring oppor- tunities in the fourth and sixth innings, but each time Gallo- way pitched his way out of the jams. St. Anne's used a four-run up- rising in the first inning and then chocked off a Greene Coun- ty Tech rally in the sixth to gain its victory. All of Tech's runs came on a grand-slam home run by Lar- ry Winderry. Mike Sonderigger belted a two-run triple in St. Anne's big first inning. Steve Megless walked eight and fanned 11 to get the vic- runs in the bottom of the sev- enth to force Arkadelphia into extra innings. Arkadelphia exploded for four runs in the ninth to away.
