00ri, 5-April 11, th This 15-year-old has e knack for catching rainbow trout One local 15-year-old has a def- inite touch for the rainbow trout fishing at Gravel Hill. George McElveen took ten trout from the stocked pond at Gravel Hill on Monday in the middle of pouring rain and utterly awful fishing weather. McElveen of Rt. 5, actually set up a tent to shield him from the nasty weather and proceeded to sometimes catch two fish at a time. "It was worth it," he said. McElveen released four of the fish (the daily limit is six fish). He was back at it again on Tuesday, arriving about 1 p.m. and catching three sassy rainbow trout in about 15 minutes, while other fishermen were barely getting a bite. McElveen was using power bait, a smelly bait which can be purchased from tackle shops. But OUTDOORS Mike Short power bait is a common bait used by other fishermen, so the bait doesn't really explain his success. He said he pinches two small pieces of the bait together, but ad- mits there is a little knack to catching the fish. Whatever his knack, he arrives ready to fish with three rod holders, much like those used by surf fishermen, att- tached to the back of his bike. He said he likes to catch the fish and his grandfather likes to eat them. George McElveen has de- veloped a real knack for catching the trout stocked at Gravel Hill on Rt. 9 near Georgetown. No mackerel yet Fisherman's Wharf tried mack- erel fishing last weekend. Dale Parsons described the outing as a "nice boat ride." That means the weather was good and the fishing was not good at all. But the water is still a little coltd for mackerel and the fishing mary be starting to pick up by the time you read this. Don't give up on thee fish, they could start hitting amy day.
