Moonlight Fishing: August 30/31 at Santa Fe Dam Recreation Center

It was a hot summer night. As the boyscout and the cub scouts join to participate in this event. Hardly any breeze and it was hot and sticky. Did the boys complain? Not at all. Some had stayed and camped over night and some I left during the night.

At the end we only caught 2 fishes as a troop, and a crawl fish. Regardless our spirit was still up and some of us was our frist time experience of moonlight fishing. We had a blast.
