Not sure I have a lot to offer other than I have a canoe, a fly rod, and live in Idaho. I just got the canoe this winter, tried it out at Brunea Dunes on Sunday, but didn't get any fishing in. Going to take it to Crystal Springs tomorrow. I've fished Crystal springs from inflatable kayaks with great success, so I'm hopeful about the canoe. Later I'm planning on Daniels, Chesterfield, maybe Oneida Narrows. My son is trying to convince me to carry it in to Bloomington Lake, but the jury is still out on that one.
