FISHING IN THE OHIO RIVER


FISHING IN THE OHIO RIVER

I take great interest in reading Fur News, which we receive monthly. I cannot read too much about furs as this is my twenty-third winter in handling them. The experiences I read in Fur News are very interesting. I am sending you some photos.

Photo No. 1 shows the wickets built on the falls of the Ohio river. They extend from Louisville, Kentucky, to Jeffersonville, Indiana These falls are about five miles long and a full mile wide. The water is from three feet to eight feet deep. The water is very swift; most places it is certain death to be caught in the currents with or without a boat. The falls abound with fish, when the river is in condition. The year 1915 was a bad year for fishing, as wt had so many rains the river did not get in condition.

Another photo shows a catch of jack salmon, caught out of the swift currents. Here is a patch of rocks, which is easily reached by wading; from these we cast in about four feet of water. To the right is a party in the act of landing a salmon. He is unknown to us.

A third photo shows a shack on Knob Creek Knob Creek did abound with bass a few years ago; but now is fished out. I read very little about fishing in Kentucky in Fur News. We have streams here where fishing is as good u anywhere. Our party go mostly to Salt river at Shepherdsville, Kentucky. Often is the time we caught fish so fast it became labor and we would quit. We would carry them home on poles. The fish we catch most of are channel cats and perch. There are quite a few green bass in Salt river. Fishing has been very bad this past season. The biggest catch was made by myself and F. Dockweiler, 31 pounds of perch in six hours, weighing about one-half pound apiece.
