One question. With the water being so still, does catching one fish spook the entire lake?
Last year while in the Holy Cross Wilderness I had a chance to fish Grouse Lake. It is a shallow lake and is full of thousands upon thousands of small brook trout. The instant I would cast and my line would go over the water, they would all disappear. I could still fool a few every now and again, but I could never figure out how not to spook the entire side of the lake. I'm also not the most graceful caster in the world.
