Polk Streams Open April 1.
Phil Begin received a letter from the
state fish and game commission Mon-1
day informing him that that body had
decided to grant the petition of the
anglers of this county for the opening i
of the streams for fishing on the first j
of April. Last fall the streams were
closed upon a petition from the fisher-1
men so as to allow the fish that had:
recently been placed in the streams to;
attain some size. Heretofore n lnrgel
number of the small fish hnve been j
caught during the winter months nnd ,
as a consequence very few fish of any j
size could be caught during the spring
and summer. About 2"i.mi0 trout fry.
were planted in the Polk county
streams last fall. ,
