Fish Tales

Kathy’s Fish Tale

On Tuesday, the 28th of June, Robert and I had been trolling by the slides while staying at Doc Warners. We had been successful at trolling for salmon in this area and already had caught 12 good sized salmon when all of the sudden my pole hit hard, fast, and unlike anything I had ever seen during any other fishing trip, anywhere in Utah’s surrounding reservoirs or lakes. Robert said, “Reel” as I had already started to.

Kaden’s Fish Tale

The final morning of my fishing adventure was upon me before I knew it. All week I wanted to catch a king salmon, but I had not completed my goal. Early in the morning, July 3, my father and I found a school of pink salmon. I made simple mistakes and lost five humpies right before pulling them in the boat. As you can imagine, I was flustered. Eventually, I landed two and my father five. The fishing died and we moved to Double Anchor to finish our afternoon of fishing. After catching several halibut, we decided to go to the land slide for one final troll. By the time we arrived at our destination, we only had 15 minutes to fish before we needed to return to the dock for the final time.
