    Brian Sloss got a reaction from Daryk Campbell Sr in River and road conditions?   
    Got about 5 inches of snow.  Roads are bit sketchy here and there now, but may be better by by Monday.  The accesses on gravel roads will still be icy on Monday probably.  River is up and a bit murky, but was fishing well the other day

    I have been catching fish, just make sure you are getting deep enough.

    Brian Sloss got a reaction from Ham in NFOW/11 Point   
    On Saturday I was one of four guides taking folks from the Ozark Fly Fishers out on the North Fork of the White.  Brian Wise was the lead guide and I thank him for including my boat on this trip.  Brian has some of the best streamer tying videos on the internet, look him up at Fly Fishing the Ozarks. Anyway, I was assigned Bill and Jerry for the day and they were great guys. The river was up, but not quite an ideal level.  The shoals were ripping with some pretty big waves.  We concentrated on finding seams of current off the main channel, particularly towards the end where it deepend a little, just so we could get down to the fish.  We didn't catch a ton of fish, but we certainly found some.  The rainbows we caught were fat, pretty, hard fighting and wild.  The North Fork can be challenging sometimes, but I love it and everyone should give it a try sometime.  We also got a couple of brown trout and the bonus of the day was 3 smallmouth.  On Sunday, Mel and Glenn, from the same group, joined me for a half day on the 11 Point.  We met in the morning and got off the river right as about an inch of rain started to fall on the river. That said, fishing was red hot for the 4 hours we fished. It was nice to be home.

    Brian Sloss got a reaction from Daryk Campbell Sr in A couple of recent trips   
    Took couples Jon and Emily and then April and Jason out to catch some trout recently and we found plenty of fish. On both trips, the ladies had never fly fished before. Both got their first fish on a fly rod and then added a number of fish after their first ones. We even got a grand slam on one of the trips: Trout, smallmouth, goggle eye and pickerel. Both very good days with great people. www.elevenpointflyfishing.com

    Since the higher water has receded to fishable levels, I have been getting some guide trips in.  The water remains up a bit and there is a stain to the river.  I have done a trout trip and a couple of smallmouth trips.  The trout has been ok, but the smallmouth are loving the stained water.  Here are some highlights.

    Brian Sloss got a reaction from JestersHK in 2/12/18 good fishing   
    Took Patrick out for a guided trip today and the fishing was on fire until 1:30 or 2.  After that the fishing slowed quite a bit until the end of the trip, though we did get a more here and there.  There were spots earlier in the trip where every other cast was producing a nice bow.  Best fish of the day was a fat 19 incher.  Great day and enjoyable company.
