The Kennebec levels have been high but they are dropping and despite the cold there are mayflies. The edges are fishing and the water is still fast but there are fish in the riffles. I think things are about to pop.

You're on the Benton side and worried about cops. I try to keep my beer buzz high enough to fight off a meth-head.

Fine balance...

...the Fairfield cops don't believe in fishing after sunset.

The meth heads are a bonus. :?

Sadly, no. The Fairfield cops have been running off fishermen (and anyone else) found there after dark ever since some local kids had a kegger by the launch and left a big mess. The State paid to tear down the old mill and dress it up into a park with clear view for the cops from the top of the hill. Benton side is a lot quieter if you can hang with the beaver.
