Trash Fish In
Several hundred spectators
watched fishery field men of
the Oregon State Game com
mission and cooperating sports
man kill the fish in Ochoco
resevoir October 9.
Ochoco reservoir is one of the
many bodies of water w here all
the fish are being killed this
fall by the Game commission.
This work is being done to elim
inate tras.i fish that have reach-
, ,ucn niRn populations that
, tne akre and reservoirs are use-
less for trout production. Many
thousands of suckers and other
trash fish were killed in Ochoco
reservoir along with many crap
pit and some trout. It was evi
dent that the trout which were
killed in this operation were in
very poor condition and showed
the results of the keen compe
tition for food with the less de
sirable species of fish which were
present in the reservoir.
A ready-mix concrete truck
was used to mix the rotenone.
1 and after it was sacked, it was
! towed through the waters of the
j reservoir by using boats driven
by outboard motors. The reser
voir will now be allowed to lie
idle until trout food is once again
I well established, and then it
. will be stocked with trout.

Deer Hunters Lag
In Sending In
Deer hunters' report card re
turns are lagging behind last
year, it was announced today by
the Oregon State Game com
mission. Almost three thousand
cards have been mailed Into the
Portland office of the commis
sion at this time, but more than
three times that many had been
returned after the first week of
the 1948 season. All hunters who
purchase a deer tag are required
to send in the completed return
card. This must be done whether
a kill is made or not and whether
the tag buyer hunts or not.
Early returns always run high

ing made a kill usually wait un

game director, stated that he
hoped the Oregon hunters would
continue the line cooperation in
making these returns that was
evidet last year. The returns in
1948 in Oregon were as high
as any state has ever had. Lock
wood also pointed out that the
law allows the Commission to
refuse tags the following year
to any hunter who fails to make
a report. He also stated that ad
ministrative machinery nas now
been set up which will enable
the Commission to cross check
t these returns.

In furnishing this needed in-
