    Wow. Must have gotten a lot more rain than I thought. They're still only showing KC to get up around 21 ft, but flood stage at Sibley and points downstream.

    Let's hope it draws some blues up the river!

    Here's the link for KC:
    http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=eax&gage=kcdm7&view=1,1,1,1,1,1

    You can click the "upstream" or "downstream" buttons to see the forecast at different points.

    Don,t be scared Robert, lets get Jim and go jump some logs...:big_smile:
    Hope it brings the cats up this year, it should help to have the water once it goes down.

    At Jeff City the Missouri is only suppose to get to 18.8 by Wed. a good 4ft below flood.
    I'll probably be getting the back water at my place on the Osage. This tends to really bring the big head carp into the slack high back water. I better get the bow fishing rig ready.

    I've got my fingers crossed for more water this year. Last year it was just too shallow for my liking. A good flood would mean a good hatch too.

    A flood on a small scale sure is welcome as far as I'm concerned. I don't want anybody's property hurt either. What I really want to know is how much water they're gonna hold upriver this year. Somewhat normal pool levels surely would bring back a few of the patterns that USED TO produce fish!?? Only time will tell.
