Some of the advantages of Conserve School’s Lowenwood campus are its four private lakes and the additional four lakes that sit on its borders. Conserve School’s founder Jim Lowenstine and his wife Elaine spent many hours fishing these lakes from the shores and from rowboats.
This spring students from CS4 have been enjoying the benefits of the excellent fishing these lakes provide. Over the past two weeks I have appreciate their stories of fishing prowess. On Friday after school I decided to share one of my favorite bass fishing spots with a group of students to see if their skills matched their stories. I also figured I might pick up a few fishing pointers from them. After confirming that everyone was using lead free tackle with barbless hooks the fun began. Over the next 90 minutes every student experienced success with a great many bass and panfish reeled in. While I wasn’t fishing, I caught a number of their catches on my camera and it is my pleasure to share them with you in this blog post.
