    I grew up fishing for blues on the Mississippi River near New Madrid, MO. Moved to SW MO 7 years ago and have been fishing the lakes and having good success. Going back home for Labor Day and do some fishing around New Madrid. I never had much luck when the river was rising fast. It looks like this weekend it will be rising fast with all the rain they have had up North. Can anybody suggest how and where to fish for blues with the river rising?

    You might add some more info to your post ie are you using a boat,bank fishing, etc... so someone can give a better response. I have to constantly remind myself of these things on this board.
