Hello, I'm new today, to this site. What I've read so far is what I've been looking for, for awhile. I'm from St. Joseph, but my job allows me to travel to Jefferson City, several times a week. I've become an avid smallie fisherman. I mainly wade the streams in the area (Jeff. City). Occasionally, I use an inflatable kayak to get to more places and deeper water. I love the small stream fishing and maily use an ultra light or my fly rod on occasion. I'm open for any hints or any conversation. ... Creek wader

Welcome to the forum, Creek Wader.

Looking forward to some smallie action soon myself...

Good name Creek Wader!! We in the Ozarks never hear about streams in Northern MO or NW MO. I'm curious, do you find many streams to wade in your neck of the woods?

PS There's nothing in the world better to do than wade a stream. Catching fish is a bonus.

Welcome Creek Wader! You should find some great information and freindly people here. Before I moved here to Missouri I waded the Rivers and Streams of Illinois for Smallmouths. It was a fun way to catch lots of Bronzebacks.

Respect your Environment and others right to use it!

Mark, Your not missing much in NW Mo. Streams are faily muddy. Catfish, bullhead, carp, greensunfish. I do my wading/fishing in the steams around Jefferson City. The clear rock bottom streams of the Ozarks have spoiled me. I mainly fish the Big Tavern Creek, Cedar Creek, Maries River, Osage River, and Moreau River. I love fishing for smallies. Largemouth and panfish are always a bonus. Cabin fever startng to set in, I'm ready to hit thestreams, first warm front. Good fishing to you. ...Creek Wader

That's kind of what I thought Creek Wader. Here on the eastern edge of the Ozarks (Ste. Genevieve), we get a little of both - the clear rock bottom creeks and the muddy sloughs of the Mississippi. And you know what some of those river fishermen call gamefish - BAIT.
