  1. I have fished the park after flooding before and the spring was murky and level with the walkway. The fishing was great. I haven't been there this soon after a rain and was thinking about a trip later in the week. I may go anyway just to get an idea of what happens when that park has flooded. Bill
  2. What's the park look like? The river below is way up. Is it fishable? Bill
  3. Good dental hygiene. Bill
  4. 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
  5. The shovel is for digging up transponders buried by the eagles and otters. Bill
  6. Club dues? Are you referring to private club entrance fees? It has been a long time since I heard that phrase. Bill
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. About the study, I heard it didn't go well due to flooding that took several of the monitoring stations out. Bill
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
