Another annual spring trip in the books.....5/14, 15 and 16

Recommended Posts

I put in reservations for our annual spring fishing/camping trip back before Christmas down at Campbell Point on Table Rock. Got an email from Recreation.gov in late March letting me know they were cancelling our reservations due to Covid-19 and wouldn't be opening the camp ground until June 1st..... I immediately called Mutton Creek and moved our reservations up there since they are privately owned rather than being a Corp maintained facility. We had 5 sites reserved at Table Rock but there were only 4 available at Stockton. We set up camp Thursday morning and headed out on the water. Everybody caught fish and brought their keepers back to camp Thursday evening so we could start filleting fish for our big fish fry on Friday night. Early Friday morning we were awakened by a round of several severe thunder storms. We got multiple inches of rain and stayed in camp until 1:20 in the afternoon. Then we went out and caught a bunch more fish and brought them back to camp to fry. We had a great fish fry with all the trimmin's including home made ice cream and strawberry shortcake for dessert. We normally have anywhere from 12 to 18 guys on these little outings but this year due to the virus we only had 7 of us. We all had our fill of fish so Saturday we just played catch and release and had a ball. It was awesome. Can't wait til our fall trip now. Planning for the last weekend in October...

That looks like a good time.  I need to find some fishing buddies and get a fish camp together like that also. Those are always the most fun.

We had 6 guys the first day and most of the second so we fished 2, 2, and 2. Saturday I took the odd man out so we had 3 in our boat. It worked out great. The more the merrier...We will probably have more than twice that many for our fall trip. Last few days in October. 10/29, 30, and 31... Bring your keeper fish a little before dark on Friday and join us.... we'll fry 'em up.
