    Took the family down Branson to eat and decided to throw in the fly rod. We had a great time below the dam. Caught a dozen in 45 mins and left to eat dinner. My wife enjoyed taking pics of the twins fishing. One enjoyed catching trout with me, the other was obsessed with rescuing stranded sculpins from the water dropping and i was most excited about one catch in particular. Might even hang it in the wall, lol. I caught a famous Doty trout.

    I have been helping Nathan age and track their growth rates. A few of those 1998 otoliths came from me. What is even more impressive than those fish living 20+ years is the average growth rate of the ones they are stocking now is 3-4 lbs a year! The 2013 fish are averaging 26-29 lbs right now. 
    Would like to add that this very rough data of what i am seeing in my catches. MDC should release their findings after their study is complete and it will be a lot more accurate.

    Well, I accepted the challenge of finding them elsewhere and luckily succeeded. Completely different end of the lake and they were bruisers. Biggest was 13.2 on the digital scale, smallest was 10.6

    These are from a couple of days ago. They are starting to do their top water thing. I won't divulge exact spots, but just cruise until you see 8 boats with 5-6 people each in overalls. They have been following my boat since they crowded me at the weir. You might as well just butt in as they have no problem doing it to me or anyone else. As soon as anyone catches a hybrid, they will move to within 20 ft of you and cast lures within 3 ft of your boat. I don't think they are trying to be rude, I think it is just not considered rude in their culture? Better find them quick. The last 2 spots they did this to me at were fished out within a week, only leaving tons of whites in those areas. Pretty sure they show up 8 boats strong almost every evening because everytime I get to go back and fish, they either all show up or already on my waypoints when I get there, lol. I don't let it bother me too much anymore. Just challenges me to find them in another area of the lake and try to hide as long as I can, lol. 
    Anyways,  they are definitely biting great right now. Smallest fish in the pic is 7.2 lbs. Biggest was 13.4 lbs. That is a 152qt cooler.
     
    Good luck!
