hope you have a good time. I was at Walnut Creek two days ago- there were so many morons dunking golfball size globs of powerbait that any hope of fly fishing was nonexistent. At least back in the salmon boom days, everyone used artificials. I was REALLY looking forward to FFing for steelhead, but not if it's going to be like that.

Yeah, I agree, I hate the crowds. We are looking to go up to Erie in the dead of winter. I know the fish dont reach a size like Ontario steel, but the numbers are whats worth it. Hopefully it wont be as you depicted. haha.
