Don't Fish la Shanirock , When The Sentinel said a few weeks ago that fishermen could not take trout from Lake Shamrock in Clare,—it was only half right! They can't take any other kinds of fish right now at Shamrock either. So, to set the record straight and correct the error,—don't fish Shamrock until the spring season. It. is classed the same as a trout stream.
