I like most will fish anytime I can even when its assumed to a bad time and some (wife mostly) say its too much! Thats a matter of opinion-If I had my way Id live on river and fish every day. When you go fishing on the river (missouri) are you looking at the current/past river data for flow rates & water levels and If so are you adjusting your stratagies? Noticed any corrolation? I personally-historically check USGS after a stretch of fishing pretty consistantly to see if I can draw a corrolation to my success/failure. Of course that assumes several things: 1.) That I am thoroughly covering areas each time out (channel,ledges,holes,runs). Several miles up/down. 2.) Other factors such as weather patterns,time of season are not playing a bigger part in the equations. Best time this year for me was july and that was a higher flow rate time then last 45 days of so,so fishing. We had an unusual long stretch of HPressure - stable weather.
