    Re: Rainbows above the Treeline

    I’d give anything in the world to fish with my Dad one more time.

    What a wonderful day for you both. Beautiful. 👍

    Good dads take wins any way they can get them. My 10 year old announced “I don’t really like fishing, but I like being outside”.

    We do a lot of “art” and “photography”, slow tubing/trolling, even some “cross country training” and “rock climbing by water”. Little brother gets in some fishing and she has to show him how it’s done.

    Truth be known she can drive the boat, run a downrigger, cast a conventional reel, clip in a climbing harness and calls dad out when he doesn’t net a fish head first. Dad say “You’re right honey” and smiles.

    Keep up the good fight. Sounds like you’re winning to me.

    Love the flowers and animals and maybe a "Hummer" along the trail, as we put the miles on.
    Most lake have a rock you can dive off of............. sweet and half the fun.

    Catching a fish is a bonus.

    Nothing like being young and listening to your teeth chatter, after a long, cold dip in Wild waters.
    Yep this lake almost all ways has snow on the side we fished with the exception of years of drought. Actually the fist thing I did was to put my 2 beers, our waters, and lunch in mother nature's cooler( packed snow) that was right behind us.

    Re: Rainbows above the Treeline

    Good for you, MKE. I am 72 years old now. My granddaughter used to hike and fish with me in the Eastern Sierras from age 8-16. She is 23 now and a nurse in Salt Lake City. I live in California, so we only see each other now at Thanksgiving, Christmas and/or Easter. But we are very close and always will be. The talking and getting to know one another during the hikes...and then the fishing...they created a real bond between us. She used to fish in pouring rainstorms and not want to quit!

    Your relationship with your daughter is going to be really strengthened by these hikes/fishing experiences.

    Awesome report and pics. Brings back memories of trout fishing trips with my dad. Thanks for sharing.
