Our Visit to Lake Witten

On Sunday, July 8, we took Cheryl's Dad, Benny, to Lake Witten to fish.

Benny came down on Friday and went home on Monday morning.

Benny fishing at Lake Witten, July 8, 2007The trip to the lake was pleasant. Lake Witten is a calm, relaxing place and it was late enough in the day that we were able to spend most of our time sitting in the shade while Benny fished. The Department of Game and Inland Fisheries says that Lake Witten has largemouth bass, channel catfish, and a few Walleye. It is stocked with brown trout and rainbow trout from October to May. Bluegill are the dominate species on the 53 acre lake.

That's what we saw, mostly - bluegill. We saw a few smaller bass as well.

I took the opportunity to walk the shoreline of the lake and take some pictures. One or two of the species of flowers were new to me.

However good the fishing there may (or may not) be, the lake is a nice place to walk. The lake is actually part of a larger park - Cavitts Creek Park. The lake is about two miles from out house. And there are pedal boats that can be rented if you want to just splash around on the lake.

We took Benny home about 6:30 and make pasta for dinner with seafood and a white sauce. Then we played Phase 10...
