    Round 2

    This time we know for sure it is a different brown than the one that my neighbor caught. Completely different. So I know now of 2 nice browns in Capps! I think there probably more somewhere in that stream. Now I just wished they would protect them more.

    Round 2

    I didn't want to post this until I talked with someone, but on Sunday I landed a nice pig of 20". Neighbor called me the night before and wanted his chance again at a nice one on Capps. So we headed down Sunday morning around 8 or so. Kind of cold again but not spitting out any snow or sleet this time around for us. I had a big black streamer looking jig on first and then I decided to change over to another one I had tied the night before. Olive and brown in color so to speak. On about the 4th or 5th cast I hooked into a nice one that I just knew had to be a nice big brown. Only caught one more rainbow the rest of the day.

    White bass run

    Water temps are right around 45. Saw a report from yesterday they whacked them upstream from Twin Bridges on Spring River. It won't be too long until they are in full force!

    Opening Day '19

    First off, prepare for the masses! Those guys and gals will be sitting or standing at their favorite hole wwwwaaayyy before the sun even comes up. I would start with a white rooster tail first thing on a spinning rod and then switch over later in the morning. Olive woolly bugger of some kind will produce down there all day long.

    Finally caught Walter!!!

    Walleye and fried taters! That was the way I had walleye the first time. Good stuff right there. Congrats on the day out!

    Big Browns out to play

    I do have to ask everyone one thing. How does the pic look? I mean, I wanted to take a pic of MY fish first and I failed, 😞 so how is the color and all of that? 🤔
  7. Didn't plan on even fishing yesterday, but when work called and said no work and then my neighbor called and said,"hey, you want to go fishing?" of course he didn't have to twist my arm to hard! lol Not really sure why work called us off since Joplin and Neosho was sparred anything bad as far as snow or ice. So he calls me around 10:30 and we take off by 11:00. Temps started out 21 and by the time we left it was 19. Pretty cold to say the least. When we got there there was a light amount of snow coming down and it was really pretty outside. On the way there we kept seeing all kinds of ditches that were flowing hard so we didn't know what we were in for. Got down to the water and it was up a little, but with a real good flow to it. We were not disappointed. I started off with my olive jig and my neighbor started out throwing a rooster tail. I struck gold first after about 10 minutes. I could tell it was a nice brown just by the way it fought. When it finally came to the net I was stoked! Bad thing is I never got a pic of it. I just bought a new camera and was messing around with it trying to get a pic and the fish flopped out of the net, spit out my jig and was gone. Well, that just plain sucked. A few minutes later I landed another brown. This one was only around 12" or so however. Then my neighbor stuck another brown, this one was about 16" to the tape. Just when we were about to leave the area he hooked into my fish! He brought to hand a 20" brown on the last cast! I say my fish because I am finding it hard to believe there were 2 in that area the same size. It could have been a different one, but who knows. This will make another year I have landed a 20"+ fish down on Capps. They are in there if you know where to find them and when to fish for them.

    Trout on the fly at night

    Everyone isn't "doing" it because it doesn't have the numbers of bigger fish to catch. Oh, the numbers might be there, but the bigger fish still aren't present like they are in other tail waters that I know of. Not saying there isn't bigger fish because I know there are. Just saying the chance of landing one is better on a different tail water. That and the fact there is only one resort on that stretch of water makes it not as appealing to some. Spider Creek is alright, but it doesn't offer Branson at it's backdoor. The people at the Dam Store are nice as well and knowledgeable too. Oh shoot, now I am going to have to make a trip back down there! lol

    Trout on the fly at night

    I used to fish the tail water pretty regular awhile back. Hardest part I found was the super clear water and the bedrock that was super slick! I used to put my yak in at Parkers and go upstream along that bluff and catch fish. Even when they don't run water it gets deep in some parts. I take it you are mainly fishing after dark closer to the dam then?

    Fishing Report 1/24/19

    Last year I caught a large mouth up around McClellends as well. In what appeared to be a lagoon on the backside across from the old campground I think it was.

    White bass run

    Last year I hit 'em twice on the Neosho and did very well. One trip I was hammering them on a war eagle spinner bait and the other time I was tearing them up on a fluke. I must admit though with Twin Bridges and Conner bridge being so close of a drive I could almost go anytime I wanted to. No flyrod here though. Oh yea, forgot to say that it really does depend on the water temps and if enough rain has pushed them upstream.

    Free GoPro

    Yea, I saw that on here just today and I thought, hey, I might as well just give it away. I don't think it really has much of a resale value since it is electronic and over 5 years old! Otherwise I would have to let my wife try and sell it at her flea market booth.
