I C&R and don't trash the water ........ but most guys today don't enjoy the wonderful experience that I do?
Nice 'gill! I'm doing the exact thing ..... and having the time of my life with my 3wt!
Same thing with trout! The easy access streams are almost fishless, but the hard to get to remote streams are packed with wild trout.
That's why I got a float tube as well. Still hard to find places clear enough to launch it though. Parking can also be an issue.
