Where's the big trout? Lol
What did surprise me was that you appeared to have the river to yourself. Very rare for your location, very rare. That was the best part of the video for me. Nice job.

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.
I'm generally leaving my house at midnight to get to places. Leaves time to make a nice cup of coffee before I hit the river (usually in the complete dark!!!) Appreciate the comment!

Big fish always bring crowds. I used to like going to the Frying Pan but it's too crowded now. I'll settle for smaller trout if I can have solitude.

In my old age my hands can't take cold anymore. I lose all strength when they're cold. So, no more winter fishing when it's not crowded. Just another kick in the nuts for getting old.
