Fishing holeA third view of our old fishing hole taken from the MC bridge over Paint Creek. The Paint Creek Tavern (aka the Yacht Club) is directly behind the photographer. This spot remained secluded for many years, but now the deck of a trendy restaurant hovers over the old fishing hole.Robert BellairsMar 14, 2006

MC grade at Main St.Looking east toward Main St. The rails are gone, but the right of way is still open through town. Today it is hard to tell that a railroad ever went through this area!Robert BellairsMar 14, 2006

Dillman & Upton buildingAnother view of the fishing hole site beside the MC grade. The retaining wall is now gone. When we were here, it was like we were in our own little world - 100 feet from Main St.!!!!!Robert BellairsMar 14, 2006

MC bridge - downtown RochesterLooking at this pastoral scene, you would never guess that this is about 100 feet west of Main St. in Rochester. Paint creek made a bend behind the Dillman & Upton Lumber yard buildings. This was another favorite fishing spot of my youth. At that time there was a stone retaining wall where we sat to fish and watch trains. At the time, the American Legion hall was at the foot of Walnut St., and they had a parking area/ball field behind the building. This location was down an embankment behind the ballfield.
