Fishing with dad at Deer Creek

Contributor: sheilanneharrison Created: 8 months ago Updated: 8 months ago

Fishing with dad (Berg Albert Olsen) as remembered by his son (Steven Berg Olsen) This was a day to remember! I was about 8 or 9 when dad took me fishing to Deer Creek reservoir, in Provo canyon. It must have been in the fall because we walked out and fished on the island (which becomes a peninsula when the reservoir is low in the fall). The wind was blowing and it was just cool enough for a jacket. We were on the east side of the peninsula and the water was choppy when we got the poles ready and slid the worms onto our hooks. There were many seagulls on the beach and flying over head; I didn't realize what a big part-of-the-day those seagulls would be. We cast the worms into the water about 15 to 20 feet off the shore, and within a minute or two we both had bites! We reeled them in. Both of us had a frisky 10” to 12” perch on our lines. Dad said that perch were a “trash” fish and we wanted trout, so we threw the perch back. While they were still in the air on their way to the safety of the water, two seagulls swooped down and caught them in mid-air, swallowing them whole. That was fun! We cast out again. (We didn't have to “re-bait” the hooks because our hooks were still baited with the original worms.) The same thing happened again; so within a few minutes we both brought in our second perch, and threw it back. . . Up in the air again. Caught by seagulls again. Swallowed whole again. A pattern for the day had formed. I don't know how many fish dad caught, but I ended up catching, and feeding the seagulls about 22 perch in an hour and a half. We never did catch a trout. The REAL amazing point about this fishing trip, wasn’t the number of fish caught or the short time they were caught in; but rather, the bait used to catch them. I didn't re-bait the hook one time! About 3/8's of an inch, of the original worm's hollowed out skin, was still on the hook, and the perch were still biting at it. It was a great fish catching day!

Berg Albert Olsen was 37 years old when Space Race: Launch of Sputnik 1, the first artificial satellite to orbit the Earth. The Space Race refers to the 20th-century competition between two Cold War rivals, the Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States (US), for dominance in spaceflight capability. It had its origins in the missile-based nuclear arms race between the two nations that occurred following World War II, aided by captured German missile technology and personnel from the Aggregat program. The technological superiority required for such dominance was seen as necessary for national security, and symbolic of ideological superiority. The Space Race spawned pioneering efforts to launch artificial satellites, uncrewed space probes of the Moon, Venus, and Mars, and human spaceflight in low Earth orbit and to the Moon.
