Was out on the Missouri River today and noticed the water level had gone up 3-4 feet. There was alot of debris in the river today as well. Now, is just me, or do the fish get lock-jaw when the conditions are like this? I have been fishing the MO all summer long and it seems that every time I went out in these conditions, I never get a fish or a bite for that matter. Even my little "honeyholes" don't produce. Am I better off turning around and parking the boat when I see the river like this, or is there something I'm doing wrong? The day wasn't a complete skunker, while catching shad with my throw net, I netted a spoonbill!! He was in about 3-4 of water and right up on the shore. First one I've ever caught or even seen alive! So that was pretty cool!! Any suggestions or helpful hints?
