Clark and Pow ell counties and which has the pee culiar name ofCoperas creek writes John Goff of Indian Fields in the Kentucky Farmer and Breeder Strange as it may seem no fish not even minnows have ever been known to inhabit its waters while it is a stream of considerable size Some contend that fish cannot get over the falls near its mouth in or durto ascend the stream while oth ers say its
