Jim Brown’s “Lake Boy” is a chronological memoir covering his experiences fishing in San Diego, from his first fish at age 4, catching spotfin as Mission Bay was dredged, catching trout in local streams, being in the middle of the plastic worm revolution, moving in at Lake Sutherland when he was 12, taking over Lower Otay Lake at 19, creating Chollas as a kids pond in 1971, running the City Lakes Program from 1974-2003 and many stops in between.
In the days before this year’s opener at Lake Sutherland, a few SDFish members became anxious with anticipation of what might await them on opening day. It made me wonder if they would be interested in a report from Sutherland’s very first opening day in 1955, a mere 62 years ago.
Check back soon for new articles! Jim will be updating this feature regularly with more tales from Lake Boy.
