We launched about 2:00 PM with mom, dad, and two youngsters on board. The goal was to expose the kiddos to some trout fishing. Dad usually does his fishing up north and mom was along for moral support. The bite was extremely slow and even though we hooked 5 or 6 we only put a few in the live well. We did see a mink or otter, but it was a little far away to tell for sure. The youngsters lasted quite a while for being as young as they were but eventually we outlasted their attention span and those little tummies were getting hungry, so we called it quits. The day did warm up, but the wind made it a little difficult for using ultralight tackle.
This was a nice family and it was a pleasure to spend an afternoon on the river with them.
