Fishing with dad at Deer Creek

Contributor: sheilanneharrison Created: 1 year ago Updated: 1 year 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 18 years old when Adolf Hitler signs an order to begin the systematic euthanasia of mentally ill and disabled people. Adolf Hitler was a German politician, demagogue, and Pan-German revolutionary, who was the leader of the Nazi Party, Chancellor of Germany from 1933 to 1945 and Führer ("Leader") of Nazi Germany from 1934 to 1945. As dictator, Hitler initiated World War II in Europe with the invasion of Poland in September 1939, and was central to the Holocaust.
Berg Albert Olsen was 24 years old when World War II: Combat ends in the Pacific Theater: The Japanese Instrument of Surrender is signed by Japanese Foreign Minister Mamoru Shigemitsu and accepted aboard the battleship USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay. The Pacific War, sometimes called the Asia-Pacific War, was the theater of World War II that was fought in the Pacific and Asia. It was fought over a vast area that included the Pacific Ocean and islands, the South West Pacific, South-East Asia, and in China.
Berg Albert Olsen was 35 years old when Disneyland Hotel opens to the public in Anaheim, California. The Disneyland Hotel is a resort hotel located at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, owned by the Walt Disney Company and operated through its Parks, Experiences and Consumer Products division. Opened on October 5, 1955, as a motor inn owned and operated by Jack Wrather under an agreement with Walt Disney, the hotel was the first to officially bear the Disney name. Under Wrather's ownership, the hotel underwent several expansions and renovations over the years before being acquired by Disney in 1988. The hotel was downsized to its present capacity in 1999 as part of the Disneyland Resort expansion.
Berg Albert Olsen was 43 years old when The Beatles make their first appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show, performing before a "record-busting" audience of 73 million viewers across the USA. The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. With members John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr, they became widely regarded as the foremost and most influential music band in history. Rooted in skiffle, beat and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented with several musical styles, ranging from pop ballads and Indian music to psychedelia and hard rock, often incorporating classical elements and unconventional recording techniques in innovative ways. In 1963, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania"; as the group's music grew in sophistication, led by primary songwriters Lennon and McCartney, the band were integral to pop music's evolution into an art form and to the development of the counterculture of the 1960s.
Berg Albert Olsen died on 9 Jan 1973 at the age of 51
