They do it on the Elk river also, lots of binocular work and radios

to stop them down river of where they littered. Sometimes they have

a jet boat on there working there way up river.

They don't go through al this trouble to catch people with a $50 littering ticket... IMO

They do and they have for decades, it's probably the most effective method they have.

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

The revenue they make on littering tickets isnt near enough to justify their expense, and you won't convince me that they are concerned with keeping the river clean at ANY expense... Otherwise they would increase the fines for littering and not worry about writing tickets for other (more costly) infractions...

Naw, I think it's all about the benjamins... Same with all these helicopters flying around looking for green patches... Or do we seriously think the state is concerned with public safety and health?

I'm not commenting on the good the bad or the evil of it, just that they have been doing it a long, long time.

Yea, I’m with Cricket, law enforcement has been doing this for many years and the kind of behavior shown in these videos has only gotten worse. I’m not quite sure what the solution is but this hasn’t worked. There are long segments of the best streams in the Ozarks that are not compatible with angling recreation. I think of it as blacked out sections on a stream map that says “Don’t Go here”, what a shame.

I talked with one about this and like he said some have no sence,he seen one car load leave the river no sooner get on the road light up a Joint and get stopped,said they knew the LEO was checking on the river but was surprised to get stopped on the road.

But they are trying to stop some of the same stuff happening that does in Party Cove on LOZ.

Is the sign for the bail bondsman still up outside of NRO? That always cracks me up.

One of my favorite things about the Niangua is picking up some litter and finding beer cans from breweries that aren't operational anymore. It sucks, but I think it's kinda funny. Stupid stuff has been happening here for a long time.
