@enak's Last Day In Truckee Before Heading Back To College

in life •  2 months ago 

I had a great morning today, fishing with my son Kane ( @enak ) at Boca Reservoir here in Truckee, California. Boca is one of the smaller lakes around but it still can get pretty busy with waterskiers and wakeboarders. We got there early enough to where the water was glassy smooth and great for kayaking. Unfortunately, no fish were caught but it was still nice to get out on the water one last time before Kane heads back to LA for his second year of film school.

There are lots of areas to access the lake along the shoreline, the water is incredibly low this year which is kind of weird considering how much snow we got in the winter. The reservoir does provide water for the Truckee River and Reno, Nevada so I assume that's where it all went.

After fishing for a while, we decided to take a break and paddle up what is sometimes a creek. We didn't get very far though before it was all dried up and no longer a creek.

This cave is another spot we often stop at when we go to Boca. It's not very big but always cool to check out anyway.

As you can see, this area is usually filled up with water. Oh well, it was still nice out and there was still plenty of water in the rest of the lake.

Don't worry, today wasn't all fun and games. I also shot a real estate property in the afternoon so it was a workday too :)

I hope you all had a fun and productive day as well!

Now that looks like a awesome outing! So calm before the wakes
wakeup! Beautiful out there, surprising the water is so low, can find
so many cool things when it's low. Interesting cave, did you go inside?
Trippy lines in the second photo. Great memories! :-)

Yeah, mirror-like when we first got there. Only two boats out there later, it was still pretty calm.
Kane did find a dead dried out crawdad where the water had dried up, lol. But we didn't see anything else. We've been checking out that cave for years, not very big or deep but kind of cool. Bird nests are sometimes in there. Oh, and the lines I believe are from a bit of the sun shining on the camera lens. Cheers!

Wow, so much water gone. Looks like you had a fun day out for sure!

It was a blast! And yeah, it's pretty low this year...

@scottshots, beautiful pictures!

Thank you @cryptospa! Hope things are going great.

So great, hanging out with your son. His second year. Exciting.

It was a great time for sure. Yup, should be another fun year for him!

It was fun! Wish se had caught a fish but you can't win all the time :) Cheers!
