While driving up and down the river trying to decide the section i was going to fish i noticed this nice bull moose standing in the brush off the road so i pulled over and grabbed my camera. i got as close as i dared, maybe 20 yards and took some shots until some other passers by saw what i was taking a picture of and then they got out. at that point i decided enough was enough for me. i decided on a section to fish and caught a couple of fish right of the bat with a bettle pattern then the fishing for some reason completely shut off. i did talk to a land owner afterwards and got permission to access his property whenever, so that was cool.
