  1. Hi guys, I'm planning on getting down to the NFOW on Wednesday morning to try some fly fishing from the bank. I will be headed towards the Taylor Bridge area (don't have exact plans).. Does anyone know which bridges sustained the worst damage down that way or what places might have some good access for shore fishing? Thanks! Last time i was down that way I managed one little baby brown..good to see the natural reproduction tho!!
  2. Any crankbaits that you're still trying to get rid of?
  3. How far south can you go on the Niangua before you get out of fishy areas. Thinking about what area might be the shortest drive from Springfield and still give me a shot at catching a few
  4. I've probably fished Upper Taneycomo about a dozen times now since moving to Springfield back in October but this morning was a first. I've tried throwing jigs and other types of crankbaits with my spinning gear several other times with no luck at all but today was different. I did catch probably 6-7 small rainbows on the fly rod with a grey scud and WD-40 but I also caught another 8-10 fish between a size 8 rattling husky jerk and a size 5 floating minnow including a brown and two rainbows that were close to or at 20". Fished from 5:30-7:30AM It was a nice change of pace feeling 'em smack a Rapala vs. watching an indicator all day I hope the shad bite stays hot for a while. I guess if we can't wade fish at least there's bigger fish willing to chase a minnow bait. Has anyone caught any walleye down there yet? I've seen pictures and reports of some nice smallies and some crappie. Another guy next to me this morning said he was up at outlet #1 and caught some bluegill..
  5. @crappie jerk sorry I was so slow on the response. I'm from the Hutchinson area! Some great fishing around those parts
  6. @Phil Lilley what did you mean by the cold side and warm side?
  7. Caught 12 -15 nice sow whites last night between all the rain from the SE side of the lake. I'm planning on hitting Stockton again in a couple weeks in search of some walleye from the bank. I got some good tips from a few of you guys on the forum as far as spots to try but I'm looking for tactics now. Do I throw stickbaits? Jig with plastics? Live bait on a slip right? Or does any one have an empty seat in their boat the week of the 15th???

  9. @Phil Lilley I was down on Sunday and the water was super high and there were only a handful of spots that were actually fishable from the bank. Has the water gone down any since?
  10. Looking for something in the 150-200 dollar range

  12. @Bird Watcher any place where a guy might see some walleye action from the shore?? or are they all out in 15-20 feet still? I don't have a boat yet but being from Minnesota, if i found some 'eyes here in Missouri i could sure make some of my old fishin buddies jealous!! Thanks for the update
  13. Hi Ryan, I ended up getting down to the Blunk Access that you mentioned earlier this week but was only able to fish for about 30 minutes as I was just passing through on a work route. I managed just the one crappie in the last photo. Saw some big tail fins coming up every now and again that looked like some nice sized gar. Glad I didn't hook one of those on my 2-pound line! Then just yesterday I got back out to "a location that shall not be named" (even though the photo is pretty obvious) and caught a few nice whites 3 on the fly with a purple and white clauser, and the last one on the jig shown. I keep hearing around the bait shops that late April, early May is panfish time. Does anyone know of a good spot to catch some crappy's??
  14. @jdmidwest are there good bluegill lakes around or are you better off finding a hidden pond someplace?
  15. Thanks for the info. Definitely a spot worth hitting soon!
