Father’s Day, June 16, 2013, my son and I spend the evening fishing on Spooner Lake. We hiked from the parking are to the lake with our float tubes. The weather was cool with light breeze. The fishing was great, my catch was eight Rainbow Trout and my son catch was nine Rainbow Trout. Only a few chub, two each, were caught. We fished for 2 1/2 hours and this is the first time my son out fished me. I had problems with the camera, which is why the video is short. It was a great Father’s Day.

On May 4, 2012, I returned to Spooner Lake, my goal for the trip was to catch my first Tiger Trout for the season. When I hiked down to the Lake, there were no float tubes on the lake, I soon found out why. The weather was nice, however, there was some wind and I thought it would not be bad. I fished with a brown bead-head woolly bugger. It worked great; I caught five Rainbow Trout and one Tiger Trout. I tried to stay in the cove; however, the winds kept pushing me out to the middle of the lake. Therefore, I did not want to fight the wind all day and I caught my Tiger Trout, after an hour and a half of fishing I returned to shore and called it good. The sound on the video was very low, so I tried my hand at adding music this time. I hope you enjoy the video.
My son and I spend the morning fishing on Spooner Lake. We hiked from the parking are to the lake with our float tubes. The weather was beautiful, as you will see. The fishing was not as great. I catch 1 Rainbow Trout and about 10 Chubs. The fishing was slow for the lake. The water was cold, so I think the trout are still staying deep. Later we found out that there was over 6,000 trout planted that after we left the lake. We will return and there is not a state record for chubs.
