Ben, the water was too low, not to mention full of leaves
Principal, Here is a good link for finding just about any campground in the NF or NP around the country.
Breck, I love all kinds of fishing. My days of hiking 4 or 5 miles to fish are just about over. This area has easy access and as a result sometimes gets a little crowed on the weekends. It is easy wading, so it's a good place for kids and old farts like me. Go early or late, or during the week day if you can.
