    If you think you might attend then send out and aye or nay. Let us know this is the dates for the Blue gathering. Lots of you guys out east live close by each other and can carpool together. You don't need much for an all night of sitting on a sandbar fishing.

    As far I as I know for now, you can count me in! Not sure if I will come Fri. or Sat. night, but I will def. head down for one of those nights. I will prob. just bring my rods and reels, some bait, and some brewskies. A buddy of mine in Oklahoma ended up with my setlines somehow after our Republican River trip on Memorial Day weekend and I don't feel like making more. I will def. tag along with ya on a few runs though, John! Looking forward to it and hope some others can make it too. C'mon guys! Lets go tear up the Blue :big_smile:

    I won't be there until Sat mid afternoon. I need to drop my little girl off and then stop in Hastings and Hickman for bait. I'm planning an all nighter for Sat night and then driving 6 hours back home on Sunday morning. Yeah can't wait to meet you guys.

    When you come into Beatrice on Hwy 77 from Lincoln you go all the way thru town until you cross the bridge. Turn left and weave your way back around till you come back to the bridge. I'll be right there. I think we're going to put the tent up down on the river if there is a good spot.

    I talked to my brother the other day and he didn't mention it. I will his wife and ask her to investigate it for us. Thanks for the heads up that would've been a real pisser if we wasted a trip

    I couldn't find anything in the G & P about the spill. Put up a link for me to read about it. I sent an email to my sis-in-law to stop by a bait shop to ask about that and the bite to see how they are doing. I'll keep you posted.

    There is an ongoing investigation into the fish kill, but it looks like there will be somebody in some trouble over this one. We have had guys down there doing body counts, it was a significant kill from Hebron downstream for quite aways; mostly rough fish and catfish.

    so maybe the best thing to do all things considered would be to fish between crete and beatrice? i can only assume whatever it was for sure isnt goin to travel up stream?

    I just talked to my brother and he informed me that the Little Blue does not run thru Beatrice. It's the Big Blue that runs thru there. He said there has not been any fish killed in or around Beatrice it's all over in the Little Blue. So with that being said I think we are still good to go. Let me know what you guys think. As far as I know the Little and the Big blue do not join together until they get into Kansas.
