    Shocker, mine is the Eleven Point and I still believe there is no better river in Missouri.

    We had a big flood this past winter and it changed a few things, but the river looks fine now.  Those who know the river really well will notice the changes,. but others won't notice any difference

    Took Willie, a Louisiana turkey hunter in Missouri for the season, on a guided trip Thursday. The river has been fishing poorly for trout most of the spring, with a few exceptions. Our day was hopefully a good sign of things to come. Willie landed over 20 fish and lost around 10 more. We had to get about a mile from the access points to do much good and we had to really take our time to find hotspots, but when we did, we were rewarded. We had our best luck on Pat's rubber legged golden stone and prince nymphs fished deep. Willie's biggest fish landed was a 17.5 inch fatty. A number of smaller, probably 1-2 year old wild fish were caught as well. Also, we lost another fish in the 17-18 inch range. Good day. I was supposed to be on the water today, but we are expecting over 2 inches of rain in the form of thunderstorms today, so I had to cancel. Rain expected to start around 10 am here.

    So while doing a guided fishing trip today, I witnessed the coolest National Geographic type moment ever. As the first fish of the day was landed just across from the Greer boat ramp, we heard loud crashing noises at the top of the ridge on the south side of the river. We all look to the crashing sound and down from the top of the ridge, a doe comes running like a bat out of hell towards the river with a large coyote right on its heels. The doe dives into the river about 25 yards from the drift boat. The coyote turns back at the rivers edge and retreats up the ridge. The doe had a cut on its muzzle,indicating a battle before reaching the safety of the water. By the way, fishing was pretty good.   My guys were first time fly fishers and caught around 25 rainbows including a 17 incher and a 17.5 incher and one 20+incher that was hooked and lost.

    This would be a very short term solution.  They need to build a proper bridge that is 2 lane and elevated well above the water so people can easily float under it.

    I took a long awaited trip to Bariloche, Argentina in the Patagonia region and absolutely loved it.  We spent a week fishing from Dec 28 to Jan 4.  We were there during a time that the biggest fish were in the lakes rather than in the rivers, but we still caught plenty of fish.  Getting there is a long process, but once there it is very affordable if you are more of a do it your-selfer.  We hired guides for a day on the Limay and Manso rivers and then fished on our own on a number of wadeable rivers. The guides are first rate, by the way. www.troutbariloche.com  By the way, the food there is second to none.  If you have ever wanted to go, I would be happy advise you how to do it much cheaper than you might have imagined.  I posted a couple of pictures here, but a lot more can be found on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/brian.sloss.5

    Call Sunburst.  Kelly ford to Sunburst and then Sunburst to their lodge just above Dawt Mill.  Stoneflies and other nymphs fished deep along with some streamers.  You will want to wade some, but be careful, there are a lot of slick spots on that river.  Have fun
