Fishing Report 05/13/2022

How's Fishing? Despite the high water, This week has been a great week of fishing! I didn't speak with many anglers this week that were not catching fish. The water is looking much better this week as it is returning to a normal level. It is clearing up more and more everyday, though it is a bit murky. 
So what is working? This week the Crawdad Marabou Jig and Ginger Snap Marabou Jig were pretty popular. Fishing deep with the marabou seemed to be the key for everyone.  For the fisherman who like to throw Rooster Tails- Skunk, Bumblebee and GrassHopper were  popular on the stream this week. In zone 3, Salmon Peach and Rainbow PowerBait seemed to be what everyone was having the best luck with. This weekend is the  Missouri Trout Fisherman's Association Derby. Good luck on the stream everyone and have a great weekend.
