I know exactly what you're saying, and with it being a fairly small area, I don't announce it either. Stumbled on it last year and there were a few folks that I saw down there fairly regularly, but thankfully it's still a pretty quiet spot most days - and I like that
As for the old fellas - a couple of them I definitely trust, and I know that they don't go down there, so I dunno...
Today all the ice has cleared out and the water is way high, but the current is strong enough coming out of the trib that I couldn't get a 4oz weight to stay put and ended up in the main river pretty much whatever I tried, and for some reason I didn't have any other weights with me. I'm busy for most of the week but might try to get out there once or twice after work to see how things progress.

Time, it makes you old. Experience makes you wise. It's only a fool who judges life by what he sees in other peoples' eyes.
