Reporter Jerry McBride paints the scene of the perfect fishing retreat on several of the refuge lakes around Valentine, NE and at Merritt Reservoir in the fall issue of KayakFish magazine. The article follows locals Katie Froning, Doug Jacobs and Steve Isom as they tour around the refuge lakes and Merritt Reservoir catching bass, pike and walleye. Local artist, photographer and angler Patricia Schemmer captures all of the action through her photography, which is highlighted in the article. The article speaks highly of Valentine and the surrounding area as a fishing paradise, especially by kayak, and mentions that Valentine has lots more to offer tourists and residents than meets the eye. The fall issue of KayakFish magazine is on newsstands until November 13, 2015.
