Ill be honest. I enjoy the experience of a river much more than I do a lake. I kinda feel like im in the minority. 99% of what I hear pertains to some lake some where. Rivers are wild and lakes seem tame to me. Rivers are also neglected and seem to be less respected by the general populace. I've ran into more than my share of logjams made entirely of trash on rivers. I dont see the same eyesores on most lakes. A few months back I busted a guy dumping diesel barrels from the top of a bridge on the north canadian where I live. It was during a severe T-storm and I was underneath the bridge. I hollered at him and he sped off. That has stuck with me ever since. I think back and fantasize about about chasing his polluting tail down. Anyway, since then Ive been thinking about why rivers dont seem to get the attention and respect they deserve. I have no answers. What do you guys think? Am I just drawing big conclusions from my small set of experiences? How often do you guys fish rivers? What is you guys' preference and why?
