    No I would not be a part of that, It's the same at junction pool. I find it remarkable that people do find that enjoyable enough to participate in it, not me. I understand, if that is all that is available then the allure of opening day loses it's luster, but I'll go a few miles away or to a different river system and enjoy my day.

    "So what did you catch today Bob?"..."Well, several floating lines and few leaders, very productive day!" that is just ridiculious to me, prime example of why i fish sections that dont have easy access

    My opening day strategy (April 1 in NY, April 15 in VT) is to wait until May when the water doesn't look like a chocolate milkshake and at least half of the wingnuts are done for the year.

    Bill Bryson, in his book "In a Sunburned Country", had this quote which sums it up nicely:

    "I would sooner have bowel surgery in the woods with a stick."
