    I haven been there i a few years but there was little pariking area there then. You can put in there when the river is in the lot but there will be no place to park. I just saw the forecast. There is rain for tonight and tomorrow and then again on Thursday. The gauge at Hermann was just a little over a foot below flood stage at noon. Aint gonna take much to raise it on up out of its banks. They might want to consider moving it to Weldon Spring. Its the best ramp for high water launching.

    Last summer you had to put in in peoples back yards because it was so high. The top of the bathroom was sticking a few feet up from the water. :crazy:

    I was there yesterday. The missouri would have to come up 5 or 6 feet to get out into the parking lot. You shouldn't have any problem putting in.

    River is supposed to drop another 3' before Saturday. So, I believe the Gasconade ramp will be fine. I will be up there on Friday night and check out the ramp for myself. If the water is too high I will call you if you PM me a name and number or you can always call me. Chris # 314-225-5416

    I will also post a cancellation or move here.
    Again, If there is not going to be a change in plans, I will not post anything here because I will be camping and wonÂ’t be around a computer.

    Also the there will not a difference between an early or late entry on the remainder of the tournaments. $60 this includes big fish.

    Kevin, I haven't fished up there since last year. I know last year it was pretty good water. The tournament has three fish limit and I expect it to take 75lbs to win.
