    The missouri river is high right now and I didn't know what part of the river was the best the channel side or the the other side.( i don't know what its called) on another note does anyone feel that you get no small bites before and after you hook into a big one. I caught a small channel and had a few smaller bites then went 30 min with nothing than had a good one on and lost it ($#@@) than nothing any thoughts?

    what part of Iowa are you in because it's not all that high here. We could stand to get some rain to raise the water up some though.

    According to the USGS river montor web site, the Missouri River at Kansas City hasn't moved more than a few inches over the last week or so.

    Up at Omaha, the Missouri river has come up almost 18 inches in the last week, though it's now starting to drop again.

    http://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/rt - you can drill-down to the location you're interested in.

    I've found that this is true alot of times. If I'm having alot of small bites then they stop all of a sudden, I get ready for a big one. If it's gar that are messing with my bait and they just stop then I'd say 9 times out of 10 it's a big cat.
