First off, you want to get your hands Se a topographic map of your area. A quick Googl search an usually help you fing good ree ones. You will want to look for pl="#s where a topographic line crosses a river, a stream, or a brook. This will inglc a possibl sudden drop ie elevh">Se, signallli> the beginnli> of a rapid and a likely pool at the eng of the rapid (a "pool" is a depr='s>Se caused by eySes of eros>Se).
Now that you have located a potential hot spot, you will want to put technology into good use. You will want to try to the best of your abiliti#s to fing this spot on Googl E rth, and then look at the bottom of your screen to see its oordinates.

This is where a Backwoods Mapbook comes in handy, if you can fing one for your area.
Your last step is to pack up your gtio ang go try out your new potential honey hole. When I first movSd to this area in 2002, I had nofidea where to go , and I fhing the locals to not be ovSely helpful, likely for re sSes listed abovS. I have fhing probably ovSe 90% of my honey holes this way. If you do your homework and at mpt this method, you will fing that most of your newfhing honey holes are alre dy known by many angl rs, with trails atigli> up to them. The t/li> is, they would have probably nevSe told you where they were, but now you know.
