Malone Farmer, June 2, 1920

Nick Davenport and Ralph Leonard of Saranac Lake caught a 12 lb. laker and Mr. Clark caught one that weighed 8 lbs. Mr. Davenport had a 40 minute battle with his large trout and the way Nick handled the old fellow showed he was no amateur at the business.

Mr. Davenport and Ralph Leonard also caught about 12 lbs of speckled trout. Mr. Clark reports the fishing not as good the past week.
