August 15, 1804: "Captain Clarke [sic] and ten of the party went to the Maha creek to fish, and caught 387 fish of different kinds ... The fish here are generally pike, cat, sun-perch and other common fish. What we caught were taken with trails or brush nets ... This day [the 19th] sergeant Floyd became very sick and remained so all night. He was seized with a complaint somewhat like violent colick." Patrick Gass
