TWO WEEKS AGO I TOOK MY WIFE AND 2.5 YR OLD SON TO NIMBERWILL CREEK. NOT ONLY DID WE CATCH A FEW FISH (#16 MARCH BROWN DRY)
BUT HE HAD A BLAST PLAYING IN THE WATER AND THROWING ROCKS.
ALTHOUGH HOUSTON ONLY STOOD BETWEEN MY LEGS WITH HIS HAND ON THE ROD...I CONSIDER HIM FISHING. I DON'T KNOW WHO HAD MORE FUN ; SON OR FATHER.
THE WATER IS WARM ENOUGH TO ENJOY IT BUT STILL COOL ENOUGH TO HOLD A FEW FISH.
YOUR TIME WILL CERTAINLY BE WELL SPENT.
BY THE WAY, MY WIFE ENJOYED HER LAWN CHAIR IN THE SHADE AND HER BOOK.
