Went to the mouth of Independence Creek today. They got a lot of rain up in northern Mo, and the river is up to about 12.5 feet right now. A lot of trash coming down the river, but not as much as yesterday. Took the kayak out on the creek and was looking for a good hole to fish. There was a nice one one on the east bank of the creek where it met the MO. The creek was about 6.5ft and the hole was 14.5. Too much trash floating around to try it though. Ended up finding a spot to bank fish but only got 2 bites one on liver and the other cut bluegill. I did take the kayak out on the Mo for a little bit and paddled upstream (its possible), but i didn't like dodging the sticks and logs so I went back. If we dont get anymore big rains the river should be cleaned up in a couple of days for another try.
