    Rising water,

    Drove to the park Friday for the winter C & R opener at Maramec Springs. Had called the James Foundation to see the water conditions and check on stocking numbers. The nice lady said the water was good but they hadn't stocked any trout for the winter season. Thought that was strange but figured I would go take a look. Arrived a little later than I wanted as a light snow had fallen and traffic was moving slow. Water was in great shape but didn't actually find a lot of fish. Started in the upper end below the cable along with another 5 fishermen. Caught a nice 3.5# bow within the first couple minutes but didn't see 10 fish caught in the first half hour. Ventured downstream and caught fish sporadically with a couple more fish in the 16-17" range. Ended up catching maybe 15 fish in three hours-not what I'd call a great day but did get out of the house. Overcast all day and a slight breeze did cut down visibility somewhat. Did see several nice smallmouth in the spring branch.

    The Praying Mantis

    The Mrs. picks up preying mantis' and walking sticks whenever she finds them. Our daughters don't see the need or humor in it.

    Baby trout?

    Fished Roaring a week ago and lots of small 3-4" rainbows and not a lot of anything else. Mrs. T wasn't happy with the lack of decent fish and we headed back to Bennett Springs. Not sure what was going on-not as many fish in rearing pools. Figure it has to do with the construction plans on the hatchery this fall.

    "That big old brown" instead of hat!

    Missouri's next record brown trout

    Hey Rick, are you going after hat big old brown with that fancy $7 yard sale rod?
  8. Pretty much all of the boys I worked with on the railroad had a nickname-some good, some not so good and some very appropriate. Evidently I resemble an old barnyard cartoon buffoon with my mannerisms and line of bs.

    Alaska Trip Videos and Images 2018

    Enjoyed the video's- wasn't sure if the guy on the first one was ever going to get that fish in . The net work and boat action on the second was funny too!

    San Juan River

    Wife and I stayed at Abes's several years ago and the folks at the fly shop there were very helpful. Scuds,midge, egg patterns that work in the midwest work well on the San Juan also. Drove to Farmington for some supplies and laundry and toured the Aztec Ruins there. Peaked our interest enough that we took one morning off from fishing and went to the Salmon Ruins . Later on our way North to Yellowstone,we stopped at Mesa Verde. Made for a nice trip.

    Grandpa Lowell Smith

    Over the weekend,one of the finest men I've ever known passed away. People from the Farmington area will remember Lowell Smith or as "Smithy the Barber" in many ways. He married his high school sweetheart,June Vaughn in 1950 and would soon have been married 68 years. He was a charter member of the Delassus Baptist church and held many positions in the church over the years. I was fortunate to be his son in law for 7 years and his friend for 47 years. He sincerely cared about people- was known to give you a hug and tell you how much he loved in a time when many people shy away from any kind of affection. He lost a son, a grandson and raised some nieces after their parents weren't able. I'm a better person for knowing Lowell and June Smith. June will be 87 in June and says she's up for another trip to Rockbridge. I know we will gladly take her. Remember the Smith family in your prayers please.

    A walk in the woods today

    Wife, Susie, has been asking every day if I think the mushrooms are up. I recently tore the labrum in my right hip and am waiting for treatment. Walking in the woods isn't suggested so I ride along and sit in the car. First day out,nothing,but today she found 5 nice morels on her own. Happy to see her finding some and wishing I could walk a little better.
