You're going to love fishing from that. Use the oars. It's much, much easier to solo row a boat of that size than to solo paddle. Also, if you have a companion with you, you can take turns on the oars. One of you can handle the boat while the other fishes, and switch off.
One of my favorite sounds ever is the sound of gravel crunching under aluminum as you push the boat out into the misty flow in the dim light of dawn. Such promise.
