  1. I can think of a number of reasons, More pressure from fisherman, There are more trout fisherman than 30 , 40 years ago, more predators, more volatile weather. I hope the study comes up with the answer to improve the fishery on the river as it is a good bit closer than the Current to home. Bill
  2. The shovel is for digging up transponders buried by the eagles and otters. Bill
  3. Club dues? Are you referring to private club entrance fees? It has been a long time since I heard that phrase. Bill
  4. I used to disregard the reports of poaching since I always seemed to run into the good guys but in the last few years I have seen it and heard from friends about the poaching they witnessed. The last one on the Little Piney in the Blue Ribbon area. Is it time we start writing to the MDC and demand they hire more enforcement personnel? Bill
  5. I believe it was two years ago that the report was given, the year after the study was launched. My experience is mostly below the park so I can't speak as too the rest of the river. My luck has been spotty at best. I have wondered what a diver would find in the pool right below where the spring enters the river during at different times of the year. Have they ever done a shock check in the waters below the park. Bill
  6. About the study, I heard it didn't go well due to flooding that took several of the monitoring stations out. Bill
  7. Actually this is what I expected to hear. Looking on maps of the area access is severely limited. Still, fishing it is still an interest. Bill
  8. I have been wondering about the access on Spring creek. I fish a few of the other creeks you mentioned but not Spring creek. Are land owners a problem? Is parking a a problem? I thank you in advance for any information You can provide. Bill
  9. I received this in my mail a couple of day's ago Thank you to all those that wrote the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) regarding using flies that have rubber-legs/antenna and the like.. Your letters/emails and concern has paid off and the MDC has "changed" their interpretation of the regulations regarding what is a fly and what is a soft plastic lure. Here is their latest response to the interpretation of the regulation. Hopefully we can get them to write a new section of the regulation to be more clear but for now we will take this. Bill
  10. Thats a good question. Everyone wants the answer to it. If you want to target big Browns I would huk streamers, Wooly-buggers and stonefly nymphs. Bill
  11. A friend wants to fish the Little Red for Brook Trout but needs some suggestions on flies to use. Can he get a little help from anyone that fishes this tailwater regularly? Bill
  12. I don't know how far back this rule goes but declaring the Protection division as "lawless" is a bit much for me. I posted an email address for members here to express their concerns not to attack. I and others are contacting the department over this interpretation. I hope to hear back soon. Bill
  13. Remember his rules apply to any area that prohibits soft plastic baits. Not just the trout parks. If you don't agree with this ruling write, http://Mike Hubbard, Regulations Committee Chair, Missouri Department of Conservation, P.O. Box 180, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0180, Let him know what you think of the ruling, Bill
  14. A week! I had two responses on the same day. I keep reading the reg as meaning any rubber at all is prohibited. If you think about it, what's the deference between foam rubber and soft plastic? I have been looking up new ant and beetle patterns using deer hair. They may not be as durable but they aren't any harder to tie. Bill
  15. Did anyone start to sing along with him? I know a few that would have. Bill
