Fishing Report

All week long I was being asked by my wife what I wanted for Father's Day. Like a lot of fathers, Father's Day kind of snuck up on us and really anything is appreciated. I'm easy; I was just as happy BBQing at home for the family as if we went out to an expensive restaurant for dinner. Actually, I'd rather be home with my family!

Knights Ferry News

Pat Ramont Johnson, Barb Burroughs and Ellen Wearin recently returned from a Christian Women's Retreat held in Bend, Oregon. They took a day trip to Smith Rock, a mini Grand Canyon. They also went to Redmond and Sisters to go antiquing. The lava flow from Black Butte that stretched 17 square miles was awesome. The weather and company was great! They connected with old friends from other retreats. A quick visit with Barb's daughter Megan and her husband Jay in Eugene was a perfect end to a great trip. They can't wait for next year's adventure.
