The fishing was bad.  I saw a few dink trout come out.  I don't like trout fishing.  They don't get big enough for my liking normally, and if it's not big enough to fillet, it's going back in the water.  Then again, I spent the majority of my lake time with not 1, not 2, but 3 kids in Jabba's Sail Barge (That's Tarpon 160 if you don't speak StarWars).  My 6 and 8 year old were in the tank well, and my GF's 2 year old was passed out between my legs.

BUT, it was a great weekend.  Millersylvania State Park is great.  Lots of old growth trees in the campground, 3 swimming areas, and trails to walk.  Nothing beats your daughters saying "Papa this is the best weekend ever!"

Dag, Lee, sorry to hear the trout suck there. a year or two back, the head Ranger told me they had " lots and lots of bass".

with the comments from the kids, it wasnt a total loss. ya done good.

"I don't like trout fishing"

Trout are my faveriot fish to catch. Get your self an ultra lite rod / reel combo, a bobber / night crawler rig and kick back.

I'm not much for eaten fish, so size does not matter ;)

That lake used to be one of my favorite places to camp at when I was growing up.  We never stayed at the state park, becuase back then there was Deep Lake Resort around the side from the lake. I don't remember ever fishing there, but the swimming was a blast.

There is now only the State Park and an "Adult extended Stay Resort" or something like that.

Sorry, I grew up in the South, where the fish are big.  Trolling for big fat trout or fishing for steelhead rocks, but planters just aren't fun for me.  I fish to eat them.  Except Bass, I'm only after them for points lol.

WR - There are still some bass coming out of there, it just wasn't my day to get one.

LMFAO!! :happy6: :laughing6: you guys come up with some good ones.

it's korean alright... slang for  "I understand, youngster".  Sorry for the confusion, Lee, i mistakenly thought you;d pick up on it right off.

Amos, it;s worse than the sandbox... i'm in appalachia  :banjo: and my next stop is el paso....  :BangHead:

I was there that weekend.  Those trout were biting pretty good on slip sinker rigs.  Although they were small try telling that to an 8 yr old :)  Monsters I tell you.
