Today was the annual kids fishing derby at Lake Baron (Tahoe Paradise Park). As usual the local Moose Lodge did an outstanding job. They stocked the lake with 3500 pounds of rainbow trout (no cuts like rumored). My daughter (5 years old) caught 2 nice fish in about half and hour. Her big brother wasn’t quite as lucky, but he did help her reel in her monsters. She wants to donate the fish to the wildlife center to feed the bears and eagles.
The Moose members had loaner equipment, bait, tackle, food, and great raffle prizes. This is a great community event. I can bet I know where my son will want to be the next few evenings- looking for the ones that got away. I guess I will be there with my fly rod…… Hope to see you also.
