After a week of camping in Yosemite Valley, I took my family across Tioga to Mammoth in order for my son, twin daughters and I to do a little trout fishing. At just 4 years old, my son, Jackson Haentzschel, is already an avid fisherman and active reader of WON. He has fished everything from rockfish to barracuda and loves every minute of it (and I get the added benefit of a reason to “have” to go fishing with my wife).
Anyway, Jackson and I hiked to the back of Lake George in the Mammoth Lakes basin to one of my favorite spots early on the morning of Wednesday, June 13. It was easy limits within an hour and a half for both of us. And, we had the added excitement of a brown bear coming by to try and grab some food, to which Jackson protected his fish and attempted to scare the bear away (with a little help from dad).
Here is a photo of the trout that Jackson is most proud of, which was the brook trout that he caught on his Spiderman rod. He chose the bait (Berkley Gulp! Floating salmon eggs) casted it himself, set the hook himself and fought the fish himself. Jackson also caught his 5 fish limit weighing in at 7 pounds 2 ounces, including a 2-pound 2-ounce rainbow and a brook trout.
