Anybody ever told you to “Go jump in a lake”?
Well, although the figurative meaning may carry a bit of a negative connotation, it’s not altogether a bad idea during a summer heatwave. However, I would much prefer to go jump in a creek.
And that’s just what me and Dad did fifteen years ago this week as told in the original report and a slideshow from the fishing photo album.

We were not disappointed as our two dozen dew worms resulted in just over a dozen fish covering five species and four new entries into the record book. Dad caught the bulk of the fish including a Grand Slam Plus with five species (carp, channel catfish, smallmouth bass, white bass and creek chub).
So, there you go. Find a public stream or get some private permission, grab a pair of creek shoes, a couple dozen dew worms and go jump in a creek (actually probably slide in). Oh yeah, and if you are able, bring along your dad or a kid. Talk to you later. Troy
