Ooof. Thanks for the heads up. Sounds like some of our streams here in Arizona. Maybe not the best option since my dad hasn't wet a line in a few years, maybe a decade. I'll be in town in a two weeks, but we will only have a half day to dedicate to chasing trout. Probably Thursday the 16th. Maramec Springs? Obviously I've never been, but I worry about crowds. I'm not much for combat fishing.
