    Tavern has Goggle-eye as well.

    Maries does not.

    Little Niangua does not.

    Weableau does, and it's a trib of Truman.   

    Pomme river does.

    Have to call BS on your armchair biologist distribution statements. Catch plenty of rock bass in the Maries over the last two decades.

  2. When I was a kid, we were at my cousin's house. He and I were lighting sparkles on a roof next to his house. Well some unlit sparkles got dumped down a PVC drain pipe, which wasn't bad until a lit one followed. Set the drainpipe on fire. Black billowing smoke led to the fire department showing up. They cut a four foot section of the pipe off near the bottom and all was over except for the beatings. My cousin ratted on me when he was the one that dropped down the lit sparkle.

    Word to the wise, do it before ya get down there as cell service is lacking.  We will have wifi at Riley's though.

    If needed you can buy a license the old fashion way ;) as well at Walmart or Harps in Mountain Home or possibly Dally's Ozark fly shop in Cotter/Gassville on Rt 126.

  4. I don't know if most of the folks here think that trout eggs hatch quickly like bluegill or even bass that hatch in less than a week and begin feeding soon after hatch. Trout need consistent conditions for close to 21 to 28 days for a successful hatch. Longer at lower temps. Then they take close to 14 to 20 days to adsorb their yolk sacs before they are active swimmers and feeders. A lot could go wrong during those times that would prevent a successful year class. So in MO they are more likely to be successful in spots that have only modest changes in water volume, dissolved oxygen levels, and temp like the small creeks that do have natural production. Whether browns could spawn in Barren fork creek or Blues springs or Crane may be possible bit detrimental to those rainbows already in those creeks.

  5. Good luck @Seth on that 20 inch brown. My largest on the white was 19 inches but saw and netted a bunch of 20+ inch browns last jigfest.

    I have been snake bit on browns the last few trips to the White. Closest may have been when fishing with @LittleRedFisherman and @JestersHK when I hooked and lost a big fish only to be followed with catching a very small rainbow on the next cast😌.

    I’m shaking in anticipation as well

    Both are considered to be authentic to their ethnicity, ciopinno as an Italian dish and fortune cookies an Asian dish. However both were recipes that were developed in the US.

    Water level was fine, it doesn't effect that creek much at all unless Monett gets it really hard. The wind was more of an issue however!

    Wind was horrific 

    When is there ever a time on Capp's that wind is not an issue?

    What's wrong with canned pumpkin?

    We prefer to roast our own pumpkins instead of using canned pumpkin. We like like fresh cranberry sauce with orange zest. Tastes better than canned.

    Kind of like tying flies versus just buying them. You do whatever you prefer.

  9.  I'm in charge of the turkey and will spatchcock it again this year. This is the third year cooking it this way. Love the even cooking of the breast and thighs. Thanks RPS! 

    Standard fare the rest if the way. Green bean casserole and homemade cranberry sauce from my wife. Also one homemade pumpkin pie that we roasted and cleaned the pumpkin not can pumpkin.
