Headed out to Lake Valley Res. for my fathers anual birthday campout and did a little fishing. His favorite lake is valley because of the great OHV trails and shady camps. We never have done great trolling for trout here like we do at most lakes, but we alwase pull lots of bullhead cats. They out number the trout population in the lake. Most that we catch are trolling with ford fenders and nightcrawlers. Didnt do to well this weekend, but we only fished the main lake for a few hours, and then i hit a smaller lake higher up the mountain which is alwase a producer of baby bullheads which makes it great fun for any small kids you have at camp. Still trying to catch the mommy fish though :). My girlfriend had a blast pulling in all the smaller cats.

All and all, we caught 10 bullheads and 5 trout. Spent a few hours at the "secret" cat pond and pulled about 40 baby bulls on 4lb test rigs for a little fun. And yes, all the baby bulls were released *;).
