Live Spring River Fishing Report

FISHING REPORT 02/04/12

The Spring River is up about 1.5 feet and muddy on this saturday morning. We received about 2.5 inches of rain over night. Water temperatures dropped from 56 degrees yesterday to 51 degrees overnight and are at on the rise at 52 degrees now Be very careful if you are wade fishing. use dark colored wooly buggers like the Grandma's Brownie or Mad olive. use a "BB" split shot to get your fly down deep. If you are bait casting try worms.

The trout will not be able to see very far so read the current for the best spots. Work the rocks and riffles. You will probably have to cast more to one spot than the normal 10 to 20 times.

Be patient, your catch numbers might be smaller than normal but you never know when you will hook that trophy!

Cold and sunny this morning. It warmed up nice til the rain came but the clouds make for better fish'n. The full moon can slow it down , The trout will feed at night so you have to work it a little harder. Still on woolys and Y2K's. I just stick to the basic's this time of year, but there is still good dry flying on some of these mild sunny days.

Well, a day or two in the Ozarks can make a big difference! They are calling for some chances of snow and some cooold overnight lows. The Spring River is up about 2 inches at the campground. I thought they were filling the lake back up, but it looks like they have stopped( Maybe to take advantage of the cold weather coming. It helps freeze out the weed in the lake.). Wooly's and Y2K"s of course. Also try a Mad Hack or Killer Worm.
