Free fishing in Sparks, Nevada

The mountains provide a beautiful backdrop for the marina in Sparks, Nevada.

I just happened upon a beautiful park and marina in my travels to Sparks, Nevada yesterday.

I was working on an assignment in the city just east of Reno and noticed a steady steam of cars, people and a few trucks towing boats.

I followed the stream and discovered the lakeshore teeming with people. It was free fishing day at the marina.

I was thrilled to see mothers and daughters (not just fathers and sons) with their fishing rods enjoying their time together.

I watched a man and a young boy with their dog on a leash attempt to launch a small boat. I wished them success but wasn’t sure they would make it.

I enjoyed it all under the backdrop of snow capped mountains without a casino in sight.
