  1. The owner at McCall bridge is a great guy and a friend of mine. Unless things have changed, he will let people in and out at that bridge. But you have to talk to him beforehand. He lives in the house overlooking the river next to the bridge.
  2. Well judging by those pics, I think fishing is canceled today.
  3. I was gonna make a snide comment about what they said about buying store bought mushrooms but thought I'd keep my mouth shut, lol.
  4. I've been hunting almost 40 years here in SWMO. I used to only hunt 1 type of area, sycamore trees. After I opened my mind, I realized they can be found anywhere. However there are some places that are overwhelmingly better than others. Here's my list of my best places to look. Sycamore trees which are not in a major river bottom. It seems the best trees are in well drained area's. Especially at the head of a ditch. Dead elm trees. But then it's only a small percentage of them that will grow mushrooms. And they have to be recently dead with the bark just starting to peel off. They're generally a 1 and done spot, only producing once. But if you find 1, you'll find 30. Ash trees are another good place to look. However most times they just have a few at best. I did find 22 at an ash tree this year which was a surprise. Oak trees on a north facing hill and almost always will be on the lower end of the tree. It seems the steeper the hill, the better chance of finding some. Cedar glades on real wet years. My best seasons are this type of year. I'll find 3 times a normal year but it's a rare occurrence. Usually right where the water comes seeping off the hill at a bluff line and below. With all this said, you can find them randomly at any place at times. I've found them on rocks, logs, in junk piles, even got 1 in a styrofoam cooler.
  5. Yeah but only got 4, so it wasn't real impressive
  6. Yeah we got a 19 and 25 incher. Also some trout, smallmouth, and white bass.
  7. I saw you guys up there. We were obviously over by the canoe. Whoever was in the front of your boat, was catching one after another. I think your pile is permanently bent now.
  8. Awesome, thanks. If you want any walleye, you better hurry cause me and my boy are heading there shortly, haha.
  9. Sounds like a good start to the weekend. Was the gates still open?
  10. Me and my 3 year old son went to the dam this evening, just left. Also went to a morel spot nearby. Going home with this
  11. After finding a few morels today, I thought I'd check the forum for others finding some. Has anybody else started finding any yet?
