The internet can and absolutely does blow up spots that otherwise wouldn't have been made popular. Especially when it comes to steelhead, I have had my mind blown at what some positive fishing reports can do to a river. Between my firm belief that less than 1% of the people who read a report I would post would be people I would personally show the spot to, and the flack I've taken for withholding location information in past reports, I've stopped posting reports altogether. Honestly, finding the fish is part of the game. If you can't do that, then take up golf.
