Today was a good day for Micah Tyler. The 38-year-old snagged a couple of bass while fishing today at Spanaway Lake.
He also arrived at the park early, spotted some shad near the shore and plopped down his chair and gear. When the temperature began to rise to the upper-90′s around noon, Tyler was relaxing on his chair.
“It’s cool,” he said as he reeled in his line. “It’s nice right here.”
Visitors to Spanaway Lake tried their best to stay cool today, whether swimming, fishing or walking. Some people opted to walk the park’s trails, relying on the canopy of trees to shad them.
About 50 kids smaller kids splashed in the lake while bigger kids perched themselves on beach blankets.
Shavonne Tyler, Micah Tyler’s wife, said her hubby may have picked a good spot, but she took a better approach to beating the heat. She and son Jericho, 3, went swimming.
“The water is nice and warm, not too cold,” she said. “Just right.”
