Nice day out !

Well I finally got off my lazy butt and went up on the mountain to do some fishing with my wife, Arlan (youngest son), his grirlfriend, and my buddy , his wife and 6 year old daughter Megan. When we first pulled up to the stream some big ol' nasty black clouds were rolling in with some high winds, rain, and thunder (did not see the lightning).

Little Megan was a solid trooper and went right up the stream with me in the nasty weather. She had never caught a trout so I had her fishing all the good holes first. After the 4th or 5th hole I snuck up to the next one and peaked over the bank and seen a nice one surfacing. So I had her crawl up behind me with her pole and helped her cast. You should have seen her little face when that pole bent over. Now that was worth the whole trip !!!!!! Thumbs up

Megan with hers and her dads fish. Of course hers is the bigger one in her right hand and dads is the little one.

And here are some pics of Arlan's and my fish.

Another great day up in the hills with family and friends ! Yes

Those are some nice looking

Those are some nice looking fish and a neat little area!  That is neat that Megan's fish is bigger than her dad's fish.  That is the way it usually works.  Thanks for sharing the pictures.

That is a great story and I

That is a great story and I am sure Megan will remember that trip for the rest of her life. Those are some reall nice looking Cutts too and I am sure it was some good eating. When I am home my wife and I get out at least every other weekend and sometimes every weekend depending on if we have 4 wheeling planned. Was at Blue Mesa this weekend with some friends and their kids. Neither the parents nor the kids have ever caught very much so it was good that we had fish that wanted to bit. They all had a great time but did get a little bummbed out when the kokes would jump and spit the hook out. Oh well that is why it is fishing not catching.
