Gasconade/Big Piney 6-27 thru 6-30 cmon down!

Recommended Posts

Have 2 tent sites booked at Boiling Spring on the Gnade. Will get there Thursday leaving Sunday. Can accommodate up to 16 max on my 2 sites but would prefer to keep it to 4-6max per site. I have A sites by the river away from the swimming area. T1-T5  meadow no shade spots are available (10 yards across the way). Will bring an assortment of smoked BBQ for Saturday dinner.

Ok...here is a preliminary agenda...I'm headed down on Thursday June 27th, and I'll bring several boats. We can self shuttle float anywhere we want to. Riddle Bridge to Boiling Spring, Big Piney down to Boiling Spring, other sections of the B. Piney, Gasconade, or go trout fishing if you don't want to float. Little Piney. Mill and Spring Creek, and the Roubidoux are close by. Figure Breakfast and Lunch OYO. Maybe a late group dinner on Friday & Saturday. Will bring some BBQ to share. That's the plan so far.

Sounds like a blast. I think we were meeting friends at LOTO that weekend, but it might just be my wife’s friend and not her husband. If that’s the case, I may take you up on this. 

I’ve somehow never managed to get on the Gasconade.

You can run a full sized jet boat on that section of the Gasconade. Was gonna bring my paddle jon w 55lb thrust TM and a 12’ SOT. Your prop boats s/b fine if you are careful. Bring extra shear pins. Paddle craft are better for the B Piney or upstream of 28 bridge on the GNade

I'll come down Thursday afternoon and help get things setup. I will bring a canoe or kayak or both but hopefully get to fish with GB on the weekend. I'll also bring a stove and some breakfast stuff for those who like a country breakfast complete with sand and ashes included. I do have a jet boat I could bring but it's in St. Louis at my sons place. I don't really want to make that trip if not necessary.

Also, there is a boat ramp for trailered boats at the CG. Location is about a mile down from the confluence with B Piney, 7 miles downstream to the old Jerome Access. 28 bridge (above which inexperienced jet boaters should not go) is 3 or so miles upstream on the main stem. Riddle Bridge (Start of the Gasconade Smallmouth Mgt area) is 14 miles upstream. Did catch my PB MO Smallie (21”) within 3 river miles of this CG. It is good water but challenging.

Awesome BB, maybe we can get an STL guy to tow your boat to  destination. We could put around in the jon with the TM Thursday afternoon/evening and run a float Friday AM.
