Taking My Daughter Fishing

Jig'n along the Kings River in Lemoore, Ca
My wife and I have not been able to have children of our own, so after a lot of thought we applied to become foster parents. Things went really quick, I went from being married without children to having 3 teen-aged daughters. My wife and I are trying our best to keep the girls involved and interested in wholesome activities. Fishing and canoeing quickly come to mind. We got the first of the 3 a week early so as a reward we took her out in the canoe out on the Kings, she took a ton of pictures and had a blast
Taught her how to paddle a canoe, cast a spinning reel and learn how to use jigs and inline spinner baits.

The water is still way high and cold, not many people are catching anything. I susspect that will change once they stop the water coming down.

Thanks for reading,
