Camp James

This was a super fun camping trip. We have only camped at the beach thus far and the kids were so excited to camp by a river, and fish and hike and explore! When all was said and done, they said it was one of their favorite camping trips! I have to agree!

Fishing was a little slow going (which I had warned them). However, kids do not have a ton of patience! Just their luck....the fish hatchery showed up and dumped 2500 lbs of trout right where they were fishing (then did it again the next day)!
Fishing got serious now. The kids were pacing back and forth on the rocks, watching the trout as they stared at the bait...yet not one would bite.

Finally, Julia grabbed a bucket, and scooped one out. Very creative! So, technically she caught the 1st fish...just not with a pole!

Once the fish started biting, they caught one after another after another. They decided to cook a few to try them but the rest were all thrown back. The kids couldn't wait to use their knives to cut the heads off! What in the world?

The campground was so beautiful and kept up nicely!

Jonah was very excited over the fish in Jake's hand!

All packed up and ready to head home after a good trip!
