Fishing with dad at Deer Creek

Contributor: sheilanneharrison Created: 3 years ago Updated: 3 years 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!

Life timeline of Berg Albert Olsen

Berg Albert Olsen was born on 16 Mar 1921
Berg Albert Olsen was 18 years old when World War II: Nazi Germany and Slovakia invade Poland, beginning the European phase of World War II. World War II, also known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945, although conflicts reflecting the ideological clash between what would become the Allied and Axis blocs began earlier. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all of the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. It was the most global war in history; it directly involved more than 100 million people from over 30 countries. In a state of total war, the major participants threw their entire economic, industrial, and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China. It included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease and the only use of nuclear weapons in war.
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 John F. Kennedy was assassinated by Lee Harvey Oswald in Dallas, Texas; hours later, Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in aboard Air Force One as the 36th President of the United States. John Fitzgerald Kennedy, commonly referred to by his initials JFK, was an American politician who served as the 35th President of the United States from January 1961 until his assassination in November 1963. He served at the height of the Cold War, and the majority of his presidency dealt with managing relations with the Soviet Union. As a member of the Democratic Party, Kennedy represented the state of Massachusetts in the United States House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate prior to becoming president.
Berg Albert Olsen died on 9 Jan 1973 at the age of 51
