Gsconaide Vs. Niangua?

Recommended Posts

In some ways they are pretty similar. The upper Niangua, above Bennett Spring, always reminds me of the upper Gasconade above Hazelgreen, but that stretch of the Gasconade is considerably longer and ends up getting a little bigger. The lower Niangua, below the trout water, is like a faster version of the middle Gasconade--the Gasconade has a lot more long, dead pools. The lower Gasconade, below the mouth of the Big Piney, is bigger water than anywhere on the Niangua.

I haven't fished the Niangua enough to know how the fishing compares. Of course, there are no trout in the Gasconade, since it's not fed by any of the biggest springs, although Boiling Spring is a pretty good sized spring even by Ozark standards.

Niangua seems a little easier to fish, if for no other
reason than the pools are shorter and the different habitats are closer. There are
times on the Gasconade when only the heads and tails of pools are fishing well
and they are often far apart.

Bass? trout? catfish? drum? crappie? walleye? meth ? loose women? What is your quarry?

Both rivers have water. Both are good. One is not better than the other.

After 1100 posts, you should know that.
