Roaring river is an AWESOME park! If you can get down there, do two things, 1: stay for a week, 2: take me with you haha. My wife's aunt and uncle live on table rock, so last thanksgiving we house sat for them and i took the drive over to RR. it was definitly worth it. the river is a nice stretch to fish, lots of different types of fishing, the spring is awesome with the huge bluff and the waterfall, plus its one of the first trout hatcherys built in the US by the conservation corp in like 1934 or something. I have a couple pictures from there I can dig up and post, but you dont have much to worry about with back casting.
Im going to try and get to the General Grant historical site this weekend across from Grants Farm. there is all kinds of neat stuff back behind the barn, couple houses and sheds, and its free! i figured the leaves are changing now so it might make for good photos.
