Washita River Fish harvest ...flood of 1950

"We lived at Bromide during the Washita flood of fifty and when the waters were receding my Uncle Carl Schultz of Connerville, cousins Kenneth and Tommy Dale and I went to the banks of the river and hand caught Buffalo and catfish by the ton. We threw them in the pickup bed and gave them to people all over the Connerville and Bromide area on the way home. The fish were stranded in shallows outside the banks and would have ran out of water soon ... so they became dinner to a lot of folks.Some of these fish were as long as I was tall then. I was thirteen at the time. The website I built for Bromide." -Jimmie Martin in Newcastle, Oklahoma
