My son and I were fishing the Park over Easter weekend...snowing above Alum Cave trailhead...still wet waded...I just don't find most of the water that I fish up there to be easily fished in it is not unusal for us to put in an 8 mile day and even if you carry the things it becomes a pain on the way out...most of my backcountry fishing doesn't require long periods in the water so I find the extra weight to be a negative.
