    Rainbow Trout with a Pink artificial worm

  2. Would I go into Amelia Lake to fetch a single Strike King? Yes, yes I would. Would I tell the kids I am staying in for awhile because, honestly, it's closer ...more to where the fish are? Yes, I'd do that too. πŸ˜… In the end, we landed no fish today. But, maybe the fact that DWR was electrosurveying the entire shoreline at the same time we were there had something to do with that πŸ€”πŸ‘
