  1. Not really, but there was a LOT of moss on the bottom just about everywhere you went. Water was more of a dark green color more than anything I thought. Wanted to hit the White, but with just the canoes and power running a lot we decided it wouldn't be the best idea.
  2. Well, just got back from the Norfork and the fishing was pretty good. Never did get a chance to hit up the White due to heavier generation than we had hoped. First day out they were running one generator and we mainly were catching them drifting jigs downstream. I ended up catching a nice 18" bow for the biggest of the trip and my buddy caught the most. Didn't get into any cutts or brookies, but the bows and browns were decent. We might have caught a couple under 12", but most were of that size though. My buddy was just as happy to go there than Colorado mainly because of the money we saved!! lol I saw what you were talking about snagged in that there was a lot of debris on the bottom. I got better however as you went downstream towards the confluence of the white. We actually caught more fish in that last run than anywhere else on the river. Still had a great time though. Thanks to everyone who gave insight to this thread.
  3. And here I thought we were talking about a different beaver! lol
  4. And here I thought they stocked less due to budget cuts at the federal level. I know Neosho hasn't supplied that much this year due to flooding and reconstruction of the ponds. They haven't been at full capacity for several years now.
  5. Old Man Coon Huntin

    I grew up with an uncle who did a lot of coon hunting around Bull Creek. John Layton trained walkers for various people around the country and he was darn good at it I must say. Lived over in Walnut Shade off 65. I think he also was one of the first around to use mules as well. He got into training them and teaching them to jump the fences. As a kid we would go there a lot and I remember there would always be skins hanging from the barn. I think back then he told me they would get $20 a hide for a good one. He really enjoyed the whole thing and especially the dogs. Not many people are into that now it seems.
  6. Thanks for all the replies. I think at this point we will most likely just head over to the Norfork and fish it. We may also hit up the White as well.
  7. Rod selection?

    I switched to a bait caster this last year due to seeing Buzz and others just tearing it up with a bait caster! I started with an Abu Garcia Black Max and a Berkley Cherry wood rod. Cheap set up to see if I liked it or not. I liked it and will upgrade after the first of the year.
  8. Really? Haven't heard that.
  9. well the fishing part is important in the regards to I don't want us to be frustrated trying to catch fish. I know it can happen anywhere, but at least I know the Norfork and where to go on it. That and the motel would be like 30+ miles away to stay at out in Colorado. Put that with the fact we could be caught in a snow storm that time of the year out in KS. or the plains! We will more than likely hit the Norfork since he has never been on it.
  10. My thoughts are that it would be crowded and there is virtually no cover anywhere around so when the wind whipped up it would make it even harder. I have fished the Norfork a few times and I know what to expect there. That and the fact it has some hogs in it as well.
  11. My question is for anyone who has fished the South Platte or Dream Stream as to whether or not you thought it was any better than the Norfolk tail water in Ark. I have a buddy who really wants to go out west and fish this stream, but I couldn't help but think it would be crowded and the fish there would be pretty hard to catch. Thoughts?

    I dunno, most were just of the stocker variety so I didn't see the need for any pics of my fish. Biggest one for me might have pushed 14". They did stock some decent size fish this time around however. Pretty sure all we were catching were stockers. Good times nonetheless. Sorry trythisonemv, didn't mean to catch all the fish from you!

    Well, put another one in the books for this year. We both tried our best but we couldn't beat Buzz this year as well. He is on a streak now winning two years in a row. We all started out at the upper bridge by the Mill. Walking down there we met a guy that said he had been tearing them up the last few days. Apparently they had stocked this year before our event. That hasn't happened in like 4 years or something like that I think. Capps is a funny creek. After all the stockers are gone it gets really tough! lol duh? right? Anyways we all started at that bridge and I think Buzz had 9 and trythisonemv had 3? I had 8 so I was still feeling pretty good about the day so far. We fished that hole I think until 10 or so then we all decided to go to the lower bridge to fish it some and then walk up. When we got there we saw them all stacked up and feeding everywhere on top so we decided we needed to stay! I caught one pretty quick and thought I would have tied buzz until he caught another one really fast. After that he was putting on a clinic! He smoked us with 15 by noon and I only ended up with 9. I know trythis onemv had 5 at least, but I saw him starting to catch more as I was leaving. Looks like he caught more after we left. Buzz kept telling me he was a Frenchie and that is why he was catching or something like that. He also was trying to use Ollie math I noticed! lol just ask him. It was a good time all in all. Olive was a big hit along with the Frenchie and I caught several on different colors. Seemed like I had to keep switching colors to catch mine. Great day and glad to spend time on the water with a couple of good guys.

    Remember this Sunday at 9:00 up by the mill. Hope to see some of you out there!
  15. Here is my problem, I want P-line 4# CX Premium, Uni-thread 3/0 and jig heads in different sizes. Everyone seems to have one or the other or not in the color I want. I use to able to get them all from Cabelas. Must have changed since the buyout, I don't know.
