Former President Obama Fishes in the Adirondacks
Obama managed to reel in a few fish for dinner and even enjoyed some homemade brew. "He was able to catch a couple Brookies on his second ever fishing trip," writes Wilcox. "He even sampled my Whitehouse Honey Ale I brewed and gave it his approval."
The trip was a long time in the making, planned almost 10 months in advance. Obama was in the area between Saranac Lake and Lake Placid, where his friend owns a camp. Wilcox tells the Times Union he didn't know about it until a few weeks ago.
"I don't know if I could keep it a secret for nine and a half months. I also couldn't talk about it until he left."
Obama flew into the Adirondack Regional Airport on a private jet Thursday where NBC 5 anchor Stephanie Gorin was waiting to take a few pictures she shared on Facebook.
