No bites today, but it was still awesome

A nice getaway


Today, my kids and I got out of the valley and drove up to Heber, UT, to go fishing. We had stopped at Deer Creek Reservoir to see how fishing was there, but after about an hour of trying to find a decent spot to fish from the shore, we decided that there was a reason why we were the only ones trying to fish from the shore. Because fishing from the shore sucks there and having a boat is the only way to fish this area. My son was bummed because there are a ton of fish species that he wanted to catch there.

We ended up going to Wasatch State Park near Midway. I used to fish this area when I first moved here to Utah. It usually is a great spot for Rainbow Trout, but we didn't get any bites here either. But it was a beautiful spot and it felt good to get out with the kids and be in nature.

It feels good to be back home and out of the sun though. I had forgot how much the sun drains you when you are out for a long time. Time to drink some water and hang out with my doggies.

I hope you all are having a good summer. Don't forget to get away from the computers, phones and get outside.

Wonderful landscape, very relaxing. The images say a lot. Regards.

Thank you. We had a great time.

Bang, I did it again... I just rehived your post!
Week 13 of my contest just can now check the winners of the previous week!

At least it was nice to get out of the house with the kids and enjoy some nice sunshine and landscape views are great looking 👍

Thank you.

Indeed with that landscape it doesn't matter too much if you catch anything. For me this year's been a poor fishing season.

I am used to not catching anything. Hopefully we can find a good spot for fishing here.

Great landscapes there ... Wish we had that much sun here, but our summer sucks. We've had a few very nice and warm sunny days. But most of the time we have typical weather for this country. A bit of sun, and then wind and rain again. I hope it will change before summer is over ... Enjoy your days out in the sunny nature overthere.

The weather there sounds like the complete opposite that we have here. It is always super hot and dry. Hopefully we get some rain here soon.

great views!

Nice clear water, I'd of been hitting that treeline over there on the last picture ;)

Just to sit there and enjoy the scenery would have been quite fine for me under a shady tree with a cold one 😂
