Father’s Day is coming up this weekend, and it reminds me of the wonderful days that I had spent fishing with my Dad. I was fortunate to have a father that took us camping, introduced us to fishing and other joys of being outdoors. His influence, whether he liked it or not, put me on a path of making a living by sharing my fishing experiences. My brother Rick was a fishing guide for many years. Rick and I made a tradition of taking Dad fishing on Father’s Day over the years. Our adventures included many trips for walleye on Moses Lake, kokanee fishing on Lake Chelan, trout fishing on Rufus Woods and other destinations here in Central Washington. One of our most memorable trips was to Domke Lake. We took the Lady of the Lake to Lucerne and hiked into the lake. We had great fishing for the cutthroat and that evening we prepared steaks and potatoes over the camp fire. Dad’s idea of cooking the steaks by holding them over the fire with green willow “baskets’ was a monumental failure that was told over and over at our family gatherings. Make some memories this Father’s Day and go fishing!
