A recent trip for a group of friends to Lake Conway produced a great day of fishing for redear sunfish. Two of the anglers were Kayce Wilson (who works at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission) and McKenzie Peters, who are holding up a couple of the nice shellcrackers that eventually resulted in a nice fish fry afterward.

Braelyn Bridgeman, age 13, and his uncle Kyle celebrate the catch of a golden rainbow trout on Memorial Day.

After this catch of a lifetime, Braelyn released the trout back to the waters for maybe someone else's future fishing story. Photo provided by Joanna Bishop.
