Too deflated for a separate report, I fished the walk-in area and it sucked. but the views made up for it.
Water is too swift for my comfort, didn't even had a hookup I think, tried nymphing, streamers, high-stick, everything I could think of. Also road closures prevent us from going to Horse Bend point, disappointing.
On the positive side of things, I played around with my camera with various settings in manual mode, first time I've done it, had fun.
