The Plover wasn’t neglected, not by any means, for Fred W. Genrich, an arch trout fisherman, conducted a successful party to Arcadia-on-Plover. Between the seven men 130 trout were landed on Sunday and Monday. In the party were: F. W. Genrich of this city, M. H. Duncan and friends, A. R. Owen, Earl Kidd and Cliff Pherie, all of Owen, Wisconsin, Emil F. Braatz and John Koehler of this city.

No worms were used or are ever used by Plover fishermen on these parties. The cottage on Plover was made ready Friday by the group of men, who spent Saturday, Sunday and Monday there.

Don’t’ think for a minute the above exhaust the number who sought old time enjoyment on the trout streams the first of the week. There are many many others.
