Here you go Poopdeck. Maple Island is unusable at 21. Columbia Bottom should be usable for at least a day or so.

    Some boaters found a body yesterday morning near Northshore Marina in St Charles County...just up river from the Ameren UE plant. Circumstances surrounding that incident are unknown to me.

    The jumper from the Boone Bridge (Hwy 40) is still missing as well. Jumped Saturday early afternoon and missing since. Keep you eyes open fella's, he's bound to turn up where alot of us go fishing on a regular basis.:confused2:

    Jason, they were just talking on 2 weather about some part of the river being closed down to NON- Commercial traffic until Friday or Saturday due to high water and amounts of trash floating, but I didn't catch what stretch.....:eek:oooh:

    We can only hope its normal by June big Will. My personal opinion is man has squeezed the sippi a little bit too much, and this is becoming an every year phenomenon. As it stands now, were only a signifigant rainfall event or two from repeating 1993 again. :sad2:
