Hey everybody... This last summer I caught multiple walleye weighing from the 2-10 lb. range and I have heard that there is a spot called either Suzy hole or Suzy rock that is a really good place for them in mid to late February to mid March and was wondering if anyone could give me some general directions... thanks!

News to me, man... There's a "Suzy Hole" in Bennett (which flows into the Niangua) but it most certainly doesnt hold any walleye... Honestly I didn't know the Niangua held many Walleye.. Must be down closer to the lake...?

Susan Rock is down below the "power house". It is an out cropping of rocks on the left side of the river (if you are headed down stream). I am not sure who owns the property there. I usually run the jet up there and on up. I have caught walleye as the spill way but the best fishing seems to be the first shoal above the power house. If you are planning on running a jet any further above the power house be careful, it get's real tricky.

Cricket they were in LOZ when I was a kid, so you know that they've been there awhile.:rolleyes:

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

Back when you were a kid LOZ was a valley with a river in the bottom! lol (just kidding)

Seriously though, I wonder how far up the Niangua the Walleye go? Lead Mine? All the way to Prosperine? Surely not....?

They can't go that far. Tunnel Dam gets in their way.

Actually they can go past tunnel dam around 5 mile slough. At the end of that journey they reach the spillway below tunnel dam lake. I don't think they are capable of going up the spillway like trout and salmon.

Don't know why they wouldn't be at Lead Mine it would be the only type of fish not in there.

Just a maer of what type of habitat they like, eh? I've caught crappie as far up as Barclay... But walleye like deeper water, don't they? Lead mine's about as far up as those deeper holes go.. Can't think of more than a handful of holes above leadmine that are over 20 ft deep..

Spose I could always be wrong, I've never targeted the bottoms on the deep pockets..
