Arctic winds gave us an opportunity to go exploring for new fishing sites. Armed with an atlas marked with public access fishing areas we took a road trip. We investigated three new (to us) areas within 40 miles of home. Two of them involved a long hike to fishable water, but one offered roadside river entry to promising water. It’s a great spot to add to our list for next spring. Go exploring! It’s a nice break from the tying bench.
