    Rt. 66 Fourth of July

    Got out for a few hours this morning, launched at rt 66 and ran up to the big river confluence, which ended up being the only clear water I could find. The rest of this stretch was really muddy. We probably caught around 10 bass, with most being small spots and smallies. I did catch one nice spotted bass that weighed about three pounds. Not a terrible morning for only really fishing one spot before getting swarmed by pleasure boaters, I will definitely get back on this stretch as soon as the river clears up.

    First time boating on the Meramac

    This passed year I got my first bass boat, since it is not a jet I know I will be limited to certain stretches of river. I launched it in the meramac for the first time last week at GW Park and fished upstream from there. I would like to find more stretches like this that have good fishing and are safe to run my boat, I’m sure those are far and few between. I grew up fishing the meramac from the bank and can’t wait to explore more of it from my boat, so I would appreciate any tips on where to or where not to launch. Thanks!

    Current below Montauk 1/12

    Fished from the cable to about half way to Tan Vat and back on Friday. The fishing started off decent but slowed as the day went on. Caught lots of small rainbows and a few just over 15 inches or so. Only caught one brown but it was no bigger than 10 inches. The fish were stacked in all the bends, with the bigger trout in the slower water behind boulders. I feel like I threw every fly in my box at these fish but couldn’t get one to bite, even with very light tippet. Not sure what I was doing wrong. The fish I did catch were on small nymphs and stoneflies. I’ll be back soon to get revenge on those big ones.

    From my research there are streams born trout in the current. I think most of the small bows I have caught in that section have been wild ones

    Upper Mississippi tournament

    Placed 17th out of 127 and missed the cut for nationals by 9 ounces. Definitely still had a fun tournament on a great fishery. Thanks for all the help!
  7. Next weekend I will be fishing a college FLW qualifier out of prairie du chien Wisconsin. I have never fished up north before and I am not sure what to expect. If anyone has any expierence here I would love to know how the fishing usually is this time of year and what the water temp and river levels will be like. Feel free to DM me, thanks!
  8. My bass club is having a tournament out of the Warsaw ramp in a couple weeks. does this section fish more like a river or a lake? I'm not really sure what to expect
  9. A friend and I floated a section of the river near steelville today and ended up catching over 80 bass between the two of us. Most were under two pounds but we did catch four or five decent fish larger than that. Plastics all day was the ticket for us.

    Weekend Report

    I fished Saturday as well. Mizzou had a club tournament that day with 6 boats and 15 anglers. We launched out of Shawnee bend and I caught a keeper on the first point we pulled up on. Then we went further back into the next cove and fished a secondary point with small rock and caught 4-5 solid keepers there. Thinking we were going to have a great day we stuck with our pattern but could not get a bite after about 10:00. For the last couple hours we fished main lake points and channel banks with everything from A-rigs to spinnerbaits and rock crawlers but only caught one more keeper and a bunch of shorts. It was definitely a fun day and we ended up winning the tournament, I just wish we could have figured out the afternoon bite a little more.

    1/3 spring and river

    Fished the spring branch today for smallies and trout with good success but decided to fish the river for my last two hours. I started off right below the park drifting a nymph and stripping a leech without any bites. I then picked up a tip from a nice man that the browns were biting further down stream so my brother and I headed that way. Since we only had an hour left we fished the first good looking spot we could find. My brother hooked three and caught one brown on spinning gear and I hooked up with one on a soft hackle but lost it right at the net. I have now decided that I prefer the challenge of fishing the red ribbion section over the spring branch and will be back soon with more time to fish.
