Fishing Day

Me with granddaughter Lily

Summer in Wyoming is fabulous. We've been having fun fishing at Granite Lake at Curt Gowdy State Park. We usually fish in the mountain lakes, but the snow is still deep and the roads are closed. So we drove to Granite which is about a 25-minute drive out of town. The fishing was great even though the water level was high because of snow-melt and spring rain.

The fish were biting on garlic marshmallows (the yellow sparkly ones) but we got a few nibbles on power bait and night crawlers. And even though there were campers and tents all around the lake, we managed to find a great hot spot!

I love getting out in nature. Glad you caught some fish too! I've been through Wyoming and it is one of the most beautiful states I have ever visited.

Belle: Hubby taught all of us to fish. I never even picked up a fishing rod before I met him. Now I love it. I also hike around the lake and take pictures of God's beautiful world. Wyoming is wonderful but I haven't even begun to explore it. I've been to Yellowstone once but never to the northern realms of the state. I'd love to see the Big Horn Mountains and the Wind River area.
