We try to make our trip to Bates Creek a yearly event, however, the spring weather dictates the quality of fishing each year.

The water was high, but very fishable today.  As we started fishing the kids (Samantha and Max) both started exploring right away.  There were muddy banks, caterpillars and snakes to be found!

We took home a few nice brookies for dinner and left behind plenty for the next group….
