A trout fishing outing

My son Aaron, brother Tom and I went down to Whitewater State Park on Saturday to do a bit of trout fishing. We had a really good time even though the fishing was so-so.

The Whitewater River was very low, looking more like it does in mid-July — one of the many consequences of a winter with little snow.  The stream was running clear and, combined with low water levels, the trout were easily spooked. We managed to catch a few, however, particularly on Sunday after a storm front passed through Saturday afternoon.

Regardless of our luck with the trout, the beauty of the area is captivating.

The weather turned really nice on Monday, of course, just when we had to pack up and go home. So it goes with vacations…

  1. My son Josh, Grandson Keegan, Uncle Rob and myself made a trip to Whitewater area first weekend in May. Camped at Whitewater State Park, chased trout for a day and a half. Fishing was slow! Keegan (5 yrs old) not only caught the first fish Friday then proceeded to catch 3 more and the biggest of the trip! Geez, all I caught day 1 was a sucker and several ‘tree bass’. Day 2 wasn’t much better. I did manage to catch a nice one Saturday morning but that afternoon storms went through and that caused all fishing activity to cease. We departed Sunday morning having had a good time and are looking forward to a return trip next spring. Maybe we can hook up with Uncle’s John and Tom, and nephew Aaron next year.
