Recent report?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to spend a day on the Niangua this weekend. Maybe float from Bennett to NRO or hike around Bennett or Barclay. It's been a few years since I've been able to make it down. I'm a catch/release flyfisherman and used to fish it it a few times a month targeting holdovers and browns. Last time I went I was skunked...very unusual. I love a day on the water regardless, but tight lips is different than no fish. All the recent depressing discussion about the Niangua "decline" has me second guessing my weekend plans. I'd really appreciate a recent update from anyone willing with a few minutes to spare. Thanks.

I also believe that the fish numbers may be down. I would suggest the float to cover more water. Or at least water that hasn't seen a lot of wading boot traffic. Good luck! Hope to see some CPR from you trip (catch photograph release).

Well not sure if KCfisher was down there but there was several fishing just below the park today.

my recent report talked about really tough conditions. I went a week later and a little rain and some clouds helped.  The fish are there, but low water and high skies make them skittish.  Fish during low light or overcast during the day.  Good luck.  Awaiting a report.

Oneshot, Unfortunately I wasn't one of them. Saturday plans for a quick trip did not work out, but I did get to go to the Project Healing Waters benefit at my home fly shop, K&K Flyfishers in Overland Park, KS. Supporting our veterans and fly fishing at the same time was almost as good as getting out for the day. So, now I am just back to working, tying flies in the evening and dreaming about my next chance to get away.

Appreciate everyone responding to my request for some help; sorry I don't have something more interesting to share as a result. Next time.
