  • My Grandfather had a farm along the St.Francis river in the early 1900's.Of course being that close to the river, fish was one of the staples of the families diet.They lived close to a community called Green's Chapel, which of course no longer exists, today it would be around the Jewett, Mo. area. He had a spot in the river where he kept what he called a fish trap. It was a dam built like this, not natural, where they placed large rocks with holes to capture the fish. A easy way to catch supper. My father often told us of our Grandma sending him down to the fish trap to see if they had caught anything. Thanks for the article, I was raised around the Saco area and spent some time up on Rock Pile Mountain. Barb-saco
