I put in at the public ramp next to bridge. I don't usually fish it this time of year but heard the crappie were biting last week. Water was dirty today. Its about 2 feet lower than when I last fished it. Checked out a place that used to be crystal clear and hard to get to with water only 6 inches of water to paddle through to get to it today. All scummed over and nothing biting there. Then as I'm leaving a train comes by and I didn't trust paddling out until it passed.
A good rule of angling philosphy is not to interfere with another fisherman's ways of being happy, unless you want to be hated.
Zane Grey, Tales of Fishes, 1919
