Fishing Report

How’s Fishing?
We have had a good couple weeks of fishing. We have had some cool weather though for the most part the conditions have made for some good fishing. Dry flies have been working great the past few days as there has been a white Caddis hatch. So if you like throwing a dry, find something in your fly collection that is white in a 16 or 18 just in case you notice some top water action happening. John Deere mini jigs have also worked well for several anglers this week.  A couple anglers reported they were stripping them and catching several trout.  The original tri color glo ball was another popular jig this week.

Bennett Spring News: A very popular topic has been the Missouri Department of Conservation “Angler Public Survey” The survey has some very interesting questions. I am most definitely not trying to start a debate but make sure if you are an avid Bennett Spring goer then please take the time to complete the survey on Missouri Department of Conservations Website

This Saturday is kids free fishing. So come on out to the spring with your kiddos and let them enjoy some free fishing.
I hope everyone has a fun and safe weekend. We'll see you on the stream.
