My wife and I went out riding around in the country today after she got off work...KID FREE I might add :wink:...picked up a 12 pack of beer at the package store...made our way through the country "looking for deer"...and ended up at the Neosho River low water dam at Chetopa, Ks. This...as I'm sure many of you already know....is where I spend a great deal of my time fishing for the first 6-7 months of the year. (My wife would wholeheartedly tell you that we're only an air conditioner and heater equipped camper away from my change of address...and our divorce...Lol) We happened to have her digital camera with us...and I decided to snap a few photos of the Neosho in her low water stage to post in my journal to help me later remind myself of the structure of the rocky riverbed when it's covered with water...and how it could potentially relate to improved success next season. (Which is rapidly approaching) The following few posts will have pictures of the Neosho in its present low water condition...as well as a few of more that will outline the near record flood we had here this last 4 th of July holiday....and hopefully put into perspective for me (and for you) how the structure of the riverbed can, and does affect the outcome of why and how the current flows where....dictating where fish will hold to rest...and perhaps even more importantly...to feed. These first 3 photos were taken from down inside the riverbed...everything you see is normally covered by water even during normal conditions...except of course the bridge...Lol.
