Fishing On Maple Island

Here is a interesting way of fishing. This picture shows six people, grabbing fish off the rocks in a shallow part of the river. On the left side of the image there is a woman holding a canvas sack, maybe for bringing the fish home.

This photograph shows another group taking advantage of the local geography to catch fish. The three people, identified as Jim and Hilda McAmmond and June Mater, are grabbing fish off the rocks in a shallow part of the river.

On Maple Island, Jim McAmmond and a friend are fishing with their bare hands. The fish are getting stuck on the rocks in the shallow parts of the river.

Look at all those fish! The man has caught nine fish in total. The fish are arranged from biggest to smallest on a line between a post and a building. An unidentified body of water can be seen behind the fisherman.

June, Hilda, and Jim are holding up there catch of the day. This photograph was taken on Maple Island circa 1950.

"Honey, I think we are having fish for dinner." Pictured are Mr. Derner and Jim McAmmond on Maple Island. They are holding up a string of recently caught fish. To the left of the men a portion of a black car is visible. In the distance an unidentified house can be seen.

At Maple Island, June Mater and an unidentified female tourist, are holding a string of recently caught fish. Two cats are sitting at the one woman's feet, and appear to be very interested in the fish. The women are standing outside, in front of an unidentified house.

What a Catch! This photograph is taken in Dunchurch and not Maple Island. But the size of this fish made it note worthy. In this photograph a young Bonnie Carlton standing a very large muskie fish. The fish is actually longer than the girl and she provides a scale of how big the fish is.
