Thomas Moore, 10, son of Thomas M. Moore, caught the fishing bug and has become a confirmed fisherman, the most obvious symptom being he will give up almost any entertainment to go fishing. He has caught some nice fish, including a golden trout, and Sunday he caught his biggest so far, a 14 ½ inch trout, on salmon eggs, at the dam. It pulled him off of his slippery rock on which he was standing. We hear Tommy Lane caught a 16 ½ inch trout, also. Stocking the creek will help raise fishing enthusiasts.
