  1. Finally made it up part of the mountain with my 2wd dually. I knew it was hotter up there than down hill. But I didn't realize it was that bad. Granted there is about 4 pieces of equipment running up there.
  2. I think when or if I make it back I'm gonna lay in the spring till I get hypothermia.
  3. Same here. I'm on a job from hell. Temps near 120 degrees for another 4-6 days. If i live I should be back in mid July.
  4. I get that much. The stream is a living thing. I'm sure that it wasn't going to be the same as before the flood. But, after the water goes back down to an average level people will get a better idea of how bad things really are. I was down a couple years ago after some real bad flooding and while it was still high, I also thought that it was going to be a total mess. Turned out that it just filled in some places and washed out others. Not really as bad of a deal than I originally thought it was going to be. I thought that it made for somewhat of a challenge to find new pockets and seams that held fish. I guess some people like fishing the usual places and prefer things that way. I like the changes as long as it's not dangerous for people to fish. But, i'm sure there'll be some work that gets done to remove sand and gravel as well as erosion repairs.
  5. Exactly what makes it a mess??
  6. Fished Saturday afternoon from 3:30pm till around 7:15. Stream was up and running pretty good. I believe it as close to 3' by the time I got on the stream. The clarity was pretty decent for the amount of rain they got Friday. With the Ozark fly fishers in town for their deal it was pretty crowded. I still managed to find some open water to fish and catch about 2 dozen fish. Fished an egg pattern with chartreuse and orange with a tungsten bead to get it down deep quickly. Size 12 with an 1/8" bead. You had to get a good drift with a huge mend to get it down quick or the current really tried to drag it back up. I kept an eye on the Usgs site to see what the water did on Sunday and it looked to be dropping pretty quick back to its previous level. Drove through the park around 6:30 on my way out and the clarity looked pretty much the same as it was on Saturday. They're calling for more rain through this week and this coming weekend. As long as it's not a torrential rain things should stay pretty much as they are. Guess we'll have to see.
  7. I'm headed down this weekend on weed and bug duty. Roundup and Sevin spraying time. Ill let everyone know how the water is Sunday or Monday.
  8. Seen it more and more at the trout parks too. Actually seen a 14-16 year old kid kicking up stuff and just scooping up fish with the net because he couldn't catch them with a rod. His parents were right there just laughing about it. ??
  9. Well Snagged, You can be the test monkey and go down and find out for us. Make sure you report back to us and clarify the rules.?
  10. Hah!!! I have no secrets. Just fish slong side me and I'll teach you how to catch fish. Just don't blame me if your reaction time isn't quick enough to set the hook without breaking the line. ?
  11. Dang guys..... Don't tell everyone my secrets to fishing Bennett or anywhere else that there are fish. LOL i always fish my way to where I wade. Sometimes I never make it past ankle deep. The murky water sure messes up people that can't see the fish.
  12. I fished Saturday afternoon for a couple hours up at the spring. Water is still up to almost 3ft and pretty murky. The flow was pretty strong. Didnt see many people catching anything to speak of. I managed about 20 fish by fishing deep with a lot of weight and a huge mend to get it down to the bottom. This coming weekend should be petty decent as long as they don't get a large amount of rain by then.
  13. Thanks for the info 10pnt. Hopefully things will get back to a normal routine down there soon. I'm sure the local economy depends a lot on people visiting that and other parks along that waterway. How does a person go about becoming a volunteer to help clean up??? Just show up and offer help?? Or is a waiver of liability signature required??
  14. How did the rest of the park fair 10pointer??? Lodge,CG's,cabins.... Etc.??
  15. It's getting expensive for the taxpayers, bkbying... Either way you look at it, it's a major hit to the system. At some point you have to look at options to keeping the process sustainable and viable.
