C, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 31, 1935 1 $1.50 PER YEAR 20,000 TROUT RELEASED Arrowood Pools Furnish Fish For Stocking Macon Streams More than 20,000 Rainbow and Brook trout have been released in the mountain1 streams of the Nanta hala National Forest during the past week, Philip H. Bryan, forest supervisor, announced today. These fish, reared at the pools in Arrowood Glade, are exception ally healthy and vigorous. It is hoped that the regular restocking of the streams in the forest will eventually result in the restoration of the game fish supply which has been seridusiy depleted in- th past 30 years. Streams Improved During the past summer 32 miles of trout streams in the forest were improved to increase their carry ing capacity. This job involved the removal of log jams and the construction of weirs and dams to provide retreats for breeding and .protection. s The value of the fishing re sources to the community is very high, Mr. Bryan stated. Vviscon sin has had the best results of any state in the promotion of ,its fishing resources; it is recognized as the finest place in the world to go fishing for the largest trout, bass, pike, muskelunge and many other game fish. As a result of its protection and improvement sys tem,' the state receives in actual dollars over $120,000,80; a year in money spent by people who go there to fish. Protection Important The cooperation of fishermen is essential if the program to improve fishing conditions is to be success ful. The protection of the brood stnrk is verv important, for fish must breed to have any in the fUture. If the fish are not caught off the spawning beds and the bag and season regulations are observ ed, the increase in fish will be noticeable in the next few years, Mr. Bryan saW.
