I would say that as of wednesday the missouri is up at least 2 feet. I put into the moroeu river,and it is up everybit of 2 feet. Hopefully the fishing is good.

Looks as if the Missouri and local rivers will crest tomorrow (Friday) from the KC area to around Booneville and start a slow desend. Were supposed to top out Saturday/Sunday here in St. Charles about three feet higher than it was last weekend.

The river is about what it was like before the rain. Although its still lower then average. It's raining right now north of KC so it just might go up a little. I don't think it will go up all that much but I heard rain this weekend.

the river was up another foot -foot and a half as of yesterday, and there is a lot of debris in the water, logs and crap.

Went out Sat. caught some shad and drift-fished. No go...Rivers moving just way to fast. My trolling motor just didn't keep the boat slow enough and I ran the motor for a while but was going through way too much gas. I'll have to give it some thought. Did catch a few nice Shad with the throw net and had some nice bites from the dikes.

Dave, caught a few shad but small...2-3 inchers w/ an occational 3-4 incher. I REALLY want to know how to catch the big ones. 1/4 pounders! heck, I'd settle for a few 7 or 8 inchers!

Bill, I fished with a guide at Truman Lake. He told me it was critical to let your cast net go to the bottom. Of course you have to know the area to avoid snags. His bait tank was full of 6-8" shad. He goes out early in the morning and late in the evening when the water is calm below Truman Dam. Maybe this will help!

Thanks everyone! catmankev, I don't usually let it go to the bottom in the fast current of the Missouri but I'll try it behind the dykes in the slack waters.
