That's an awesome report. Getting old sucks don't it? I'll hit 41 this year and I feel it when I try to hike those mountains for sure.
Your lake report sounds like an encounter I had with some folks at Sugarlands a couple of years ago. A father and son fishing there argued me down that there was a lake upstream feeding the MPLP! I quit arguing pretty quick, hey what's the harm if they wanna believe it.
