I'm thinking about floating between Lewisville Park and Daybreak Park in my pontoon, any tips or thoughts?
Jim, thanks for sharing that and I hope you get to enjoy countless more trips to the river with your dad. Many of us are not as fortunate. I have been blessed with fine company on many fishing adventures, but sharing that with my dad would truly be special. EdIt was, took my dad out for the first time in years due to cancer stuff. If you know the swimming hole at Lewisville then you know the picnic tables are near the river. When I hooked it dad jumped up and scrambled down to the river to help. I wanted to hand him the pole but he just wanted to watch. I've been gettiing on him to go fishing with me for years, his old Lamiglas just sits collecting dust in the garage. Yes he is an old gear fisherman of 79yrs old. I gave him the fish, he gave me his pole to take home and get it ready. I lubed the old Mitchell 300, new 10# Tri line, thats all he used to use, cleaned up the pole, sanded the handle a little and tied on a new spinner. I haven't seen that gleem in his eyes for years! Next week we are going to the Kalama. I've got my old fishing buddy back! He helped me catch my first steelhead on the Lewis when I was 6 years old. Now I'll be doing all the tying I'm sure. Nothing better than fishing with your dad.
