    The navigation season is set to close on October 26 at St. Louis, which means it'll be done at Kansas City about 5 days ahead of that, or Monday Oct 22.

    Once this current flood pulse moves through, you can expect the river to continue dropping - how far down it'll go is anybody's guess -- a lot depends on the amount of upstream rain we get for the remainder of the fall. But recall that we were at record low levels in January of last year, and many folks believe that's why the fishing was so poor all winter. Let's hope we don't have a repeat of last year!

    I fished Weldon Spring today. Coast Guard was pickint up most of the bouies. I guess the ones they left were cause of the high water. They are headed up stream.

    As much as I hate to admit this, I dont have an answer for that one Cuz. I have often wondered the same thing. I cant remember ever catching a channel cat in the channel of a major river. And they are mainly used in stocking lakes. Go figure. I am sure someone has the answer to this thought provoking question. Inquiring minds want to know
