March 12, 2012 Stream Conditions
We received about a half inch of rain yesterday, but it was a slow soaker. The stream is in great condition, a couple inches above normal and clear in color. The niangua river is about the same. Good fishing in the river as they stocked about 500 fish here last friday the 9th of march. Getting lots of reports of 14 to 15 inch fish here in the park. As you may have heard, we had a tornado go through just before opening day. It did some damage along highway 64 up by the fire station, but no damage within the state park.
Overall, fishing has been very good.
