HISTORY BOOK FISHING PICTURES Here is another fishing picture out of the history books.
CLARKS CREEK FISHING REPORT Not much fishing going on in The Valley. More of a deer hunting pre-season buzz going on these days than anything else, with a mixture of scouting, ground blind work, practice shooting and the laundering and airing out of hunting clothes. Speaking of getting those archery duds ready, we have pretty much moved to a baking soda approach to everything—good ol’ sodium bicarbonate. Hand wash everything using baking soda. A half to a full cup of baking soda in a “load”, which would be comprised 6-8 articles of clothing with the baking soda layered in with the clothing. Then fill your laundry sink or wash tub with water (make sure you thoroughly rinse the container with clean water first) and get in up to the elbows and start washing. Once you’ve worked over the clothes pretty good, give them a good rinse with plain, clean water. Wring everything out by hand and line dry. Then store the clean and line dried and aired out clothing in one of those big plastic air tight storage bins, which you have also rinsed with clean water first, by layering the clothes in with a light dusting of baking soda between layers. Everyone has their own “technique” when it comes to hunting clothes, but the foregoing should help to get your clothing as scent free as possible. Tweak it by putting fallen/dried leaves between the layers of stored clothes if you want to.
Free Bait From Composting: Composting is a great way to not only produce excellent organic material for your gardens and flowerbeds, but any compost bed is a natural bait producer as well yielding worms and grubs upon turning over those rotting lawn clippings and kitchen scraps. You can easily make a compost enclosure or bed by pounding some fence posts or scrap lumber into the ground to comprise the corners and then walling that off by stapling on chicken wire or galvanized fencing material. Make a gate with some more scrap boards and a little more chicken wire, and you are good to go. A good “start-up” size can be 3 x 3 x 3, or in that neighborhood.

PA POND CATFISH: Our Technical Advisor, Zombo, with a 29 inch channel cat that was caught using 4 LB test line and a shiner, while bank fishing a Harrisburg area orchard’s irrigation pond. Circa 1992. It took 2 hours to land the fish, carefully letting it run and walking and/or running it up and down the shoreline. After taking it home for a few photos, the fish was later returned to the pond in a cooler full of water and released.
