    Kevin, There is also Missouri access in Riverside in the little park just east of the Argosy Casino. It's not a bad spot, easy to get to the bank, and I've caught several blues right there.

    I bank fish quite a bit too, maybe we can hook up one of these days. In my experience it's pretty hard to find bigger fish from the bank in this area before late March or so, but that doesn't keep me from trying.

    if you can get the farmers permetion to cross there land i did very well on flatheads and channels in the mouth and into the feeder creeks east of kc on the missouri river , blue , little blue,cook,sni and also of some dikes you can walk out on when conditions are right. i knew a few of the farmers allready but if you ask first and dont take a bunch of people and cause trouble or leave trash they will probably let you .

    also be carefull if you walk out onto the dikes if a barge comes up river i would reel in and move off until they pass they leave big waves and can get you wet sometimes out on them.

    Alex, Ill second that. I plan on doing alot more river bank fishing this season. Last year I did alot of lake fishing, and fishing the outlets at Perry and Clinton, but I want to focuse more on the river banks, be it , the Kaw or the Mo.

    I've been out there twice in the last three weeks, didn't spend more than a few hours trying to get a few eaters. I was less than successful. :roll_eyes:
