The trout are biting at the bottom pond at Calhoun County Park, near Rt. 16. These are fish averaging 12-15 inches, with some that are larger. They are known to swim around in schools, spotted by the observing angler. You are invited to go fish for this resource. After you catch a few, be thinking about donating to the cause next year. Cost of the fish stocked by Indian Lake Fisheries was $590.42.

Turkey season is halfway over. Some fine longbeards have been taken and others are still gobbling. Glenn McBride harvested a nice Calhoun County longbeard. Your good sportsman, such as Glenn, who are willing to put in the time scouting pre-season and hunting hard will usually have success.

Wild turkey is a wonderful meal. Usually, I pound out the breast and fry it in butter. What meal could be better than a Calhoun turkey, some Calhoun trout, and some ramps or mushrooms from our hills and hollers?

I would like to start a outdoor spotlight of game and fish taken by Calhoun residents. Email them to Thanks, and be safe in the turkey woods.
