In the last good water year, 2 years ago, it looked like this in the Miracle Mile section...

PT,

I'll be up in the Bridgeport area in September, and plan to focus on stillwater fishing for this same reason. Hopefully, next year will be an entirely different scenario up there.

The EW gets plenty of pressure, especially in the miracle mile. I'll let it rest this time around...solid advice.

Thanks,

-VB
