Here's an interesting article about Lee Spencer, guardian of the Dynamite Pool on Steamboat Creek.

I found the article to be quite good. As much as I loathe further popularizing my favorite rivers, this article is a really good thing. And words don't (can't) do it justice. Hopefully this will increase public awareness and visitation to the Big Bend Pool. A visit to Lee, Sis, and their finny friends should be considered mandatory to anyone fishing the river.

Earlier this fall during a rain I stopped by and watched near continuous surface activity by fish all throughout the pool. It was beautiful. I headed downriver, tied on Lee's skater, and proceeded to get thoroughly skunked. All in a day's fishing...
