  1. If you’re gonna catch fish you gotta be bouncing the bottom. Try to fish out of the strong current flow if you can. There’s plenty of fish in there. Just find something that works and weed through the small ones. I caught enough fish over the weekend to keep some decent fish if I would’ve wanted too. 1 of about 6-8 fish was a decent fish. Most were skinny small fish. Not sure why they were as skinny as they were, but they were. A couple thing to keep keep in mind if you’re fly fishing. Fish enough weight to get your fly down quick. Mend your line as quick as you can and let the fly lead your strike indicator. That’ll get your fly down faster. As as long as they don’t get another drencher storm the stream should be in decent shape this weekend. Quite possibly, you’ll be able to use some smaller fly’s and might even see some top water action around 3-4 in the afternoon. I know I’ll be watching for it. Hopefully I’ll be down Friday night. Maybe Saturday morning.
  2. If you’re driving east on 64 and you still try to turn on 64A you deserve what you get. Nobody in their right mind would be driving fast enough pulling a 35+ft camper and try to turn there seeing all that stuff. If they’re headed west then they’re too dumb and drove past the main entrance. Besides that, there’s plenty of room to back up without backing into traffic on 64.
  3. Well, this should help the situation a little bit.
  4. Just a 3/4 ton pickup with a 12ft pop up would be over 5T. Hopefully people just follow the rules and don’t drive too heavy a trucks across it. If it’s in as bad a shape as you heard, then maybe they should close it.
  5. Why is that?? I’m thinking the bridge is just as strong as it was before it got damaged. They’re just trying to deter people from hauling big campers and such across it. If prople obey the weight rule it should last quite a while.
  6. Well, hopefully everyone with heavier rigs go around. Heck, just my 2003 Ranger and 12ft pop-up camper was pushing 7k. Just imagine a 5th wheel and 4X4 Dually diesel pick up combined. I saw a ton of people doing that before. I mentioned the weight limit to a guy I followed in one evening. He was pulling a big 5th wheel with a 1Ton Dodge diesel single rear wheel. He was at the check in office for the CG. His reply was comical yet sad. He said he’d been driving over that bridge for years with no issues. He also said he planned on driving over it as long as it was there, because he didn’t like straining his truck pulling his camper up that big hill at the main entrance. I asked him if his camper was to heavy for his truck. He had no clue. Said the salesman said he had plenty of truck to pull it. LOL Kinda makes you wonder how many folks actually know what their truck and camper combo weigh.
  7. I know a lot of 1 ton dually pickups are over 9000lbs empty. I could easily see one loaded at over 5T.
  8. Anyone know what it was before it got damaged??
  9. That's the problem with those managed hunts that are for population control. Most people are hunting for a once in a lifetime buck instead of killing deer to manage the herd. Make it an earn a buck program at least and it might help achieve their goal of reducing numbers. Still probably won't get the full targeted number, but it'll for sure be better than the results they just got.

    Fly only questions

    There are states that were felt ban that are going back to felt being OK. Like mentioned already, it's got something to do with phosphorus in the water. Supposedly, dydimo exists in pretty much almost every stream. But, phosphorus keeps it in check at the right levels. All the streams out here in Oregon are felt legal streams from what I've seen. The streams I fished in NY this past summer were dydimo positive streams and they all were allowing felt soles. The San Juan in NM is felt legal. All those streams are way more fragile than MO trout streams in my opinion. So much for those boot washing stations at Bennett Huh??
  11. Maybe the park concessionaire chipped in to hurry up the project......🙄
  12. Hard to say about an outage schedule. I've worked a bunch of them across the country and there is no rhyme or reason on their schedules. You would think that it would be during low demand times. Normally November in MO isn't crazy cold. So if they scheduled an outage then it would go on as planned. Regardless of actual demand. So they may be using the generation as filler for high demand on the grid. JM2C
  13. Is there an Outage at a local power plant?? Seems like it's a demand issue for the grid.
  14. Kinda like a guy I saw with a stick digging around in a porta jon once. I asked him what he dropped and he said he dropped his jacket in there. I told him I would give him a jacket and to let it go. He said screw the jacket!! My ham sandwich is in the pocket.......🤢
  15. Stuck out here in Oregon still. Otherwise I'd be there this weekend at least.
