Enjoyed the video. It's the closest park to where we live and I fish it the least. Buddy and his kids had some nice fish a couple weeks ago.

It's about 40 minutes away for me so I go there to scratch my trout itch from time to time while I dream of being on Taneycomo. I've been to Montauk a few times and while it is a nicer park, I didn't feel like the fishing was any better than Maramec for me personaly. A lot of people seem to struggle at Maramec Springs compared to the other parks though.

I enjoyed the video @Seth. Looked like a fun day. I haven't  fished there too often to learn where it fishes best and with which lures. For us Bennetts was a little bit further but didn't cost more to fish. So we spent more time there.

There ain't much to it really. Green/white rubber leg jig, white trout magnet and orange wacky rigged trout worm always work for me. Check the first hole I caught most of the fish in my video and just above and below the water fall/dumps. The swift water below the dumps can be good and that is the one area where I do better drifting bait (rainbow or yellow powerbait paste is all I carry). A super duper is another lure that I am going to spend more time trying. The fish were all over it in the video. I'm betting it would be a bit more effective in swifter water where they don't get as good of a look at the lure.

I've had luck with that down in Bennett's. I ususally use jigs and microjigs. So the super duper was fun to fish with.

I'm late to the party... loved the video.  Would love to see some more. What is the body of the Green and White jig?  Seth you must love that rod.

It's a custom built 7' MHX light action that a friend made me. I paired it up with a Shimano Stradic FL 1000 and 3# Maxima Ultregreen. We've been fortunate enough to do very well in the Taneycomo tournaments so I decided to splurge on a really nice trout setup. I'm not sure if I actually catch more fish with it than I did using my $120 Airstream/President combo, but it sure is nice to fish with.
