Fish Tales: Your President's perspective. . . . . . . . . . .

Wow- April went out with a bang. Fishing is back, camping is back, in person meetings, Spring Fling, the Trout Challenge and the Trout Derby at Lake Dixon. It was a wonderful month to be a Senior Angler.

So much happening. Our program for April was our friends from Dixon Lake with Head Ranger Greg giving us an update on some of the new prospects at Dixon. He also asked and received some outstanding ideas on things to do that would make Lake Dixon even better. Thanks for the audience participation; he truly appreciated it.

The trout challenge at Lake Wohlford would have only been better if you were there. Many fish were caught and it was a tight race for top fish. The smiling faces on all the anglers were great to see. The guys barely squeaked by as one of our lady anglers, Daria Gardynik, showed them how it’s done and caught one of the biggest crappie I have seen in a long time.

Our Spring Fling was a wonderful success. Many thanks to Jimmy and Fariba and to Brenda and Marge. Brenda not only organized the event, smoked the meat, and made the sauce, but generously donated all of the above. Everyone seemed to have an awesome time with great conversation, great food (BRENDA can cook!). Many other great dishes were also shared. The bake off was a delicious event. Everyone left full of friendship and food and of course the auctions items they couldn’t pass up.

And lastly, whew. The City of Escondido/Kiwanis of Hidden Valley trout derby was simply one of the best. It was so wonderful to see so many of you working the registration/check-in area and those dedicated souls who manned and “womanned” the kiddy ponds. You guys were super special just like the smiles of all the kids catching their fish. I want you to know how much we appreciate your efforts and I know how fulfilling and lucky you feel about bringing such joy to those kids.

So how do we top that off in May? Well, we are having another great program brought to you by another ranger. Bill Augustus of the San Diego County Parks and Recreation will be going over the activities at Santa Ysabel Nature Center. It is going to be another interesting and informative presentation you don’t want to miss.

We will also have another surf fishing challenge and I believe another trout challenge may be in the works . Best of all we have our camping, camaraderie, and fishing trip to Lake Cuyamaca and Pinezanita campground. If you couldn’t get reservations come up for the day and join in the fun. See you at the May meeting on the 13th!!!!!!!
