This weekend I got away from it all for an afternoon of trout fishing at Tyler State Park. Texas is blessed to have so many great State parks to enjoy and Tyler's State Park is a gem. The park has much to offer like; camping, swimming, mountain biking, hiking,bird watching and fishing in the beautiful 64 acre spring fed lake.

This past December, the Texas Parks and Wildlife released 2,000 trout in the lake and another 2,000 earlier this month. My husband and I have fished it a few times, but we get so busy working that we don't take the time often enough.

But this weekend we took the time to enjoy nature, the outdoors and a little trout fishing. It paid off. We enjoyed the day, the outdoors and nature, and we caught a nice stringer of trout! But you know the best part of the day, was enjoying each other and breaking away from the stresses of work, and well, life. Take the time to live life and break away for some "me" time often, it 's good for the soul!

Oh, since we're talking fishing, make plans to attend the 2nd Annual KNUE 'Big Bash Bash' April 12-13 at Lake Palestine. $10,000 for the biggest bass along with $40, 000 in cash and prizes paid out over the weekend. New this year, anglers could win $25,000 just for weighing in a fish. For all the details and to register, click here!
