    Saw that graft myself and am wondering where is it coming from this time. All the way up to Minn it is showing or was last weekend anyway, normal or below level. Now at our little town it is showing pretty much normal for the same time period.From Clarksville dam down it's showing a rise in water.Don't don't make sense to me.:confused2:At least it's staying below flood stage hopefully.

    This may be a stupid question, but do you guys stay off the river when there is a big rise like that? I have always heard the fishing is good when the water is rising, but you all seem disappointed. We were fishing those types of water levels (16.5 ft at Alton) not long ago and the fishing was decent. Is your concern all the debris, the current or just the general effect on the fishing? :confused2:

    its mostly about debris with me. But then it is good fishing while it is comin up and then it turns bad when it is fallin. Most of the time i find this to be true. Of course you are getting that from a guy that dont seem to be able to buy fish this year. But thats the way i remember it

    I'm not so giddy. Just when I was beginning to find a bit of a pattern -- everything changes. More variables.:confused2: Furthermore, there's about 10 times as much water in which they can elude me. That's the last thing I need.

    I would probably feel better about the situation if someone helped me locate that aforementioned wing dike. :big_smile:

    Here's the trick, what ya do is, get up to crusin speed an..................well, if the dike is just below the surface, you will eventually find it. You can measure the distance you are airborne to judge whether the dike is a good producer. Don't forget your "Hazzard Yell" as you fly.:wink:

    All of you guys crack me up it wasnt to long ago all of you were complaining about the water coming up and I tried telling you guys some of my best days on the water was in flooded conditions. A good rule of thumb is rise with the fish and fall with the fish this doesnt work all the time but its a good place to start.

    The high water is fine for you Mississippi boys but it isn't worth a crap for the Missouri river.It's going to come up and drop real quick that freaks out the fish,they like more stable conditions and thats not anywhere close to stable that's like a massive flash flood.I sick of high water this year period:angry:.
