The Pond with the Scouts

The Scouts from the Rocky Reach Ward (my ward) and the Eastmont Ward (Rob's ward) went to the pond in Ellensburg to do a cleanup service project and an overnight camp.... along with some fishing!

The fishing was good. The boys and leaders were already there when I arrived. I hopped in my tube and fished for about 45 minutes and landed 3 or 4 nice fish. All rainbows. I caught them on one of my home-tied cone head green moal leeches. It was extra fun to catch them on a self-tied fly! I went back in and let one of the leaders take out my tube. He proceeded to catch 2 nice trout including a large brown that broke off the fly at the tube.

I then took out Layton Judd in a rowboat and had him fish the clouser minnow that I had tied as well. He landed 3 bows in about 30 minutes. It was a good time.

Final stats for the night: Tom - 3 or 4 trout. Rob - 1 trout (I fished more!) Dad - 0 trout (he was busy rowing and calling the scouts "lard butts" and saying things like, "Do you think I'm rowing this boat for fun!") Rick - 0 trout (not present, but would the statistics REALLY have been any different??)

FISH ON!
