    Greetings from downstream (St. Louis). This past weekend I bought an ACOE River Navigation Map and couldn't help but notice how huge the pool above Lock and Dam 13 is...it appears 3 miles wide at some spots. How's the fishing up there for Cats and Walleye? It's about 260 miles up river and might make an interesting adventure for next year. Thanks in advance.

    Last Saturday Manchester Iowa had 6 inches of rain causing flooding and road washouts. All that water went to the Mississippi so fishing has been really slow from what I hear. I fish 14 and even before the rain the water was up and current was very strong. Couldnt keep bait in the water for more than 5 minutes without it being totally covered in grass. This may be why no one has responded yet.

    Thanks for the update, Duane. Is that section of river really as wide as it appears to be on the map? On the map it appears to be 3 miles wide in 2 places. Thanks.
