Many Boats In
Town Creek Was Scene Of
Much Fishing Activity As
Anglers Sought To Take \
Advantage Of Good
One of the Bolivia high school
girls who lives at Winnabow stat
ed Monday that about every
available boat on Town Creek
at the bridge was hired by fish
ing parties Sunday.
The day happened to be the
prettiest and warmest of the
year. A result was that only
about half a dozen Rocjtfish or
strippers were caught. Unlike
most other fish, the rock has to j
have clear and cold weather to
get much action out of them. The
colder it is the better they usual
Among the half-dozen fish re
portedly caught in Town Creek
Sunday one 11-pounder was taken
by a lady who had never before
caught a fish of any sort or size.
Despite the fact that hundreds
of the rocks have been caught ill
various streams in Brunswick
since Christmas, the sport has j
been far from being as good as j
it should have been. Excessive1
rains, flood and muddy waters |
kept sportsmen off and al<n kept;
the fish from biting like they
should. Interviews with half a
dozen sportsmen who know some- [
thing about these fish indicate a
general belief, that the fishipg will
be at its best during the month
And Town Creek, one of the
best streams in the county for
these fish, will have something
..... uuvc suinetmng
still more interesting to offer the
fishermen about the first of April.
The runs of herring wUl be on
about then and will last for sev
eral weeks. Scores of boats are
taken to various points on Town
Creek during the herring runs.
