Put me in boat, give me a fishing pole… or not, an ice chest with cold tea in it for the summer and a thermos with hot coffee in it for the winter, and I’m set for several hours. Lake Living in the Tri-Lakes Area of three big lakes, Broken Bow Lake, Pine Creek Lake and Hugo Lake all within an hour of each other along with multiple rivers and don’t forget Raymond Gary Lake is almost heaven on earth.
