Fishing Report

How's Fishing? We've  had a great week of fishing with several lunkers being caught. We had several anglers bringing up multiple lunkers on separate occasions. We seen a variety of lures, jigs and flies used this week. In zone 1 and 2, The Rooster Tail in Rainbow Fry, Bumble Bee, Skunk, Gold and Black did great. As far as flies, several anglers reported the blue wing olive and the renegades were productive on top.  Lots of anglers fished glo balls this week in the Jimi Hendrix and Apricot pattern.  In zone 2, Super Dupers in the (Silver- red tip)  and the (Gold-red tip) were on the list of great lures with week. In zone 3,  The Pink Glitter PowerBait  was probably the PowerBait of choice are far as dough baits. Worms were also working well for several anglers on the spring and on the Niangua. The stream is still clear and flowing normal for this time of the year.  We had a great turnout for the Memorial Day Weekend with some huge trout caught. I hope you all have a great rest of the weekend. Good Luck and stay safe.
