I went back down to the first hole, and was able to land this guy.
Beautiful, this was actually the best fish of the trip.
We headed back to camp for some naps, and relaxation.

The next morning we headed for the King's Creek Falls hike. It was about a mile down to the falls, and a mile back up. It was a bit more strenuous than I expected, but if a 3,5,and 8 year old could make it I could too.

We made it back to camp, and I decided to try my luck at Hat Lake again. I headed further upstream, but wasn't able to hook any in the long, slow, clear pools.

I decided to nymph the deep pool below some falls on the opposite side of the highway. I was rewarded with a few small brookies.
We had a lot of fun on this trip including some late night board games.
