  1. In NE Kansas. We're under a statewide order to stay at home.
  2. Good for you! Unfortunately for me, access to the white bass here is restricted due to stay at home orders.
  3. This is my concern about my one specific fishing goal this year: a June trip to Montauk State Park. My guess is that we won't be dealing with the virus by then, but you never know.
  4. I overlooked this. Now that you mention it, I think I may have heard that somewhere along the line. It makes sense.
  5. No comment. Do you have any insight into the reasons for the variances in the regulations at the trout parks? That's the question I ask in the thread.
  6. All of these qualify for what I'm thinking---I used to the phrase "good experience" earlier, and that might not be the best choice of words. What the restrictions can do is promote "different strokes for different folks," offer something reasonably pleasant for a varied group of users, make a body of water more fishable for different groups, etc.
  7. That's been my understanding. I presume it has something to do with the private ownership of the actual park.
  8. You may be right on that. I haven't fished all of them, but it rings a bell. Why that is the case is exactly why I started the thread. My guess is it has to do with helping kids to fish at BSSP.
  9. Your guess is as good as any. It matters to me mainly to satisfy my burning curiosity. Along the lines of what you say, though, tackle restrictions can, in theory, promote a good experience. e.g. "Fly only" to promote catch and release or to give fly rodders plenty of room for their casting by directing bait fisherman to another area of a park.
  10. The trout parks all have various bait/lure/fly zones, but they are not consistent from park to park. Anyone know the reasoning or why such a varied system? For instance, Roaring River appears to have an artificial-only section, and you can use soft plastics in that area. By contrast, Bennett Spring lumps soft plastics with bait in a separate zone. For reference: Roaring River: "From the hatchery to the posted sign at the mouth of Dry Hollow Creek, only artificial lures, soft plastic baits and flies are permitted...No putty-dough baits, other natural baits or foods may be used in this area." https://mostateparks.com/page/54247/fishing Bennett Spring: "From the whistle bridge to the Niangua River. Only soft plastic bait (unscented), natural and scented bait are permitted. All flies and artificial lures are prohibited, even if natural bait or scent has been added." https://mostateparks.com/page/54109/fishing
  11. Thanks, I find all of this very interesting. I'll check it out the next time I'm there.
  12. I think its misinformation. It would have to be totally new for this season. I haven't heard anything about it.
  13. I'm hearing this about the Cabelas fly shop, although I haven't seen it with my own eyes as yet.
  14. For anyone who might be interested, here is the official report of the Battle of Inman Hollow, July 7 1862. Since I understand Stevenson's Mill was in the present park boundaries (it was later burned and relaxed), it sounds like Major Gallup led a detachment of the Third Missouri Cavalry right through the present park to the mouth of the hollow. Then they went northeast up the hollow for three miles where they fought the battle. One thing thats a little disturbing is the lack of wounded. In a typical battle there's normally four or five wounded for every man killed. I have also run across a statement written a few months later from a soldier at nearby Salem saying that company Q of the Third Missouri Cavalry kept the guerrillas in the area in "wholesome terror," and "rarely take prisoners." (This is in Inside War by Michael Fellman, p. 77). Company Q is not listed as one that actually fought in the battle, but this still leaves me wondering if some atrocities might have occurred. There was a lot of that sort of thing in Missouri in the war. In any case, here's the official report and a link to the original source. https://ehistory.osu.edu/books/official-records/019/0152 JULY 7, 1862.- Skirmish at Inman Hollow, Mo. Report of Major Henry A. Gallup, Third Missouri Cavalry. SIR: In pursuance of Special Orders, Numbers 21, from these headquarters, I took command of a detachment of 205 men of Companies B, D, G, and H, and proceeded to Crow's Station, arriving there at 1 a, m, on Sunday. The next morning I sent Company G, in charge of Sergeant Haines, with the wagons, direct to Salem, and proceeded with the other three companies to Stevenson's Mill, on the Current River, leaving a detachment of 15 men at Spring Creek, to reconnoiter and get such information as was to be obtained of the whereabouts of any rebel force that was in that vicinity. Monday morning, the 7th instant, I sent Lieutenant Avery back to Spring Creek with Company H, to go from that place to Salem, and proceeded down the river with the two remaining companies to the mouth of Inman Hollow. Learning that several bands of rebels had been seen the night before about the head of this Hollow, and receiving information that there was a rebel camp, 200 strong, in that vicinity, I proceeded up the Hollow-searching closely for indications of an enemy. After proceeding about 3 miles 5 rebels were discovered getting corn from a barn on the road-side. Lieutenant Agnew, with the advance guard, drove them into the camp on the opposite side of the road, closely followed by Company B, Captain Glover commanding, charging the camp at full speed. The rebels fled precipitately, leaving coats, blankets, and arms on the ground. Owing to the distance at which they heard the firing from the house, they were flying in every direction when we arrived at their camp. We succeeded, however,, in killing 11, mortally wounding 1, and taking 1 prisoner, with several horses and mules. Their arms we were obliged to destroy, as we had no means of transportation. Two Hall's carbines, 1 German carbine, and 1 revolver pistol were saved. From Inman Hollow we marched to Salem, and encamped for the night. On Tuesday morning I left Company H, with several horses of other companies, unable to travel for want of shoes, and proceeded direct to these headquarters, having directed Lieutenant Avery to proceed to this place on Wednesday following. I am, colonel, your obedient servant, H. A. GALLUP, Major Third Missouri Cavalry.
