MHJHS Fishing Club Not In Trouble

Oh to be a kid again in Mountain Home, Arkansas. Mountain Home is not only blessed with the fabled trout waters of the White River. If you are young enough you can fish Dry Run Creek which is reserved for anglers under the age of 16. I wonder if I could join the Mountain Home Junior High School fishing club which was formed 5 years ago as a way to keep kids out of trouble?

"I would ask them why they did whatever they did to get in trouble, and they would say 'I was bored,'" he said. "We live in the greatest area for hunting and fishing. This way they can't say 'I was bored.' I've seen a turnaround in a lot of these kids."
