I know, there's some absolute trucks in there. I caught a few nice one's, but there were a few others that I was aiming for that wouldn't budge for anything I threw their way. Regarding the lack of people, you're totally right. I was there very early and had a couple hours to myself. Fishing was best then too. Didn't get crowded til 8-830am, and really filled in by 10am (at which point the fishing slowed way down too). I'll go to great lengths to get a few hours of solitude, and once it gets busy, I'll go explore a less popular stretch like Lower down that river (which I did and was lots of fun catching smaller guys). Thanks for the comment and input on the video!
I was going to say the same thing. I have never had the C&R to myself. Even in Jan and Feb in sub-freezing temps there are always a few intrepid souls out there. But, then I am not there at o-dark-thirty either! Nicely done, as always.
