Required reading

This is not good news for a hobby largely based on the imitation of insects to catch fish.

Need 2 boats

The drift boat with a motor doesn’t really work for lakes. They track poorly, they are slow and the wind pushes them all over. A drift boat or raft and a proper lake boat of 16’ or more is the way to...

Yes, yes and yes.

Assuming there is water in those waterways, your in the center of some good fishing spots. You can even walk to nice summer holding areas from the park.
