I'm planning a camping trip out by Elk Creek and the Wilson at the end of May. This will be my first time there, and I'm not a very experienced fisherman (two seasons at East Lake, and a bit of stream shore casting). Any tips for me? I'm also strongly considering grabbing a pontoon float (Colorado XT seems to be a good beginner setup) for future lake fishing, but I'm debating whether I want to do it before the trip or wait a bit longer. Would you recommend taking this out on the Wilson and anchoring/paddling in the area I mentioned, or would it not be worth buying one early? I don't know how calm the water is, etc.
