Ok I know all the standard pay lake posts, and I agree with sediment .and yes, a 5lb wild flatty is > 50lb paylake one.... That being said, Im a hypocrite because I do like to take my kids fishing and dont feel the GMR at dusk/night is safe for a 2year old; between the occasional strange folk if shore based or the current if boat based. My wifey is nervous enough when I go out, she would kill me if I took the little ones. So once a year or so I take one of my little runts to a paylake for a couple hours. So when the wife asked me to watch the kids tonight so she could get a bit of work done, I made a deal, and decided I would take my girl to rainbow lakes. I saw a post on here about this having new ownership who has cleaned it up and made if a family friendly place now, and thought sure Ill try it for a couple hours. Im posting to say I think this is not a family friendly place. - Restrooms, hard enough for a guy to take his daughter to a restroom, most mens rooms are not the nicest facilities. Rainbows is complete failure. Its not a restroom; its an outhouse, the equivalent to a large port-a-potty. After saying daddy, daddy I really really need to potty I quickly pack up and rush her over to the facilities, we wait until its empty, go in, gag for air from the stink, and my girl promptly say eww its yucky, Im not going potty here, you need potty I wait outside. Come on. Family friendly? There are no doors on the stalls I dont want strangers coming in to see my girl on the restroom no sinks or running water to wash your hands? I can understand this if I hadnt read this family friendly junk about the new ownership. I head to the shack where you buy your pass thinking surely they must have nicer facilities, explain that my kid cant use there restrooms and they say thats all they have, they have to use the same ones. If we want a better restroom have to head down the road a bit. Remember me saying there where no sinks in the restrooms? Yes they sell food at the shack there .yuck. - This was not a planned trip so I bought some bait when I first arrived, because dont have my bait tanks set up for river fishing for the year yet. $2/ each goldfish! To top it off, I had 2 bites during the 2 hours or so I was there . Both came back with just the head of the goldfish .for that price you think they would clean out the turtles I mean come on. So if anyone else is thinking about taking their kids their .dont bother. Anyone know a good safe place for kids if I want to take them for an evening run? I dont like to bother with boat, as attention spans are rather short sometimes, but would like somewhere I can tag something other than bluegill.
