Thanksgiving weekend is coming up and that means lots of family and friends will be around. Not only do families get together, but it is a time when many students are home. I think back about what I was doing during the day during this Holiday. It was a great opportunity to spend quality time in the outdoors. I have fond memories of my brother Rick and I getting in trouble with our Dad by arriving late to the family dinner when we had to make one more cast or pass on one of our fishing trips. These experiences are something that I am thankful for, being together with my Dad and brother in years past. Those were precious times. I want to suggest an option to consider for an outdoor adventure over this Holiday weekend. One would be Rufus Woods Reservoir near Bridgeport. There are fire pits and picnic tables right on the shore above the dam. Take some firewood and enjoy the day watching for a bite while you warm near the fire and share memories of Thanksgivings past. You could also try your luck from the shore at Brandts Landing, just six miles up lake from the dam.
Here I am landing a nice rainbow from the shore at Brandts Landing in December a couple years ago.
