I am sure you went and I hope you had success. Fishing rivers or creeks from shore/land is a fluid activity. Keep moving and fishing as many holes and spots as you can find--especially out of sight ones. I grew up doing this in New England and have had many great days on smallies & trout. The 1st 10 spots could yield nothing and at the next is a 3 lb bronze monster jumping all over the place on your Mepps spinner. Good fishing to all.
