    Hey all,

    The guys in KC have a thread like this that gives everybody a one-stop place to check up on local fishing conditions. This can be for many miles up or downstream from STL.

    Let's try to keep this one going too.

    I have only had my new boat out once so far so I can't add much but should be hitting the river at least once or twice a week in the near future.

    Like everywhere else right now, the fishing seems a bit slow, Lock and Dam 25 area is where I'll do most of my fishing.

    Ok, so far no one wants to contribute to this thread so I'll post again.

    Fished below Lock and Dam 25 tonight in pool 26. Hit several wing dikes with holes 40 ft deep, fished some abandoned barges in 15 ft with 25-30 ft scour holes alongside them. Drifted some revetment banks in 12-15 ft of water.

    All on fresh cut shad.

    All for nothing.

    Just a few fiddlers and nibblers, probably gar.

    Skunked again.

    Where are the fish?

    Is that why the board has gotten so much quieter lately?
