The Hoot Owl restrictions have been lifted from the surrounding Missouri tributaries. Regarding the fishing, remember what I said last week? “Tricos, caddis, callibaetis, hoppers, etc. That is what it’s been for weeks, and what it will continue to be for the time being.” Well, that’s what it is. For dry flies, use cripples, standard Adams parachutes, midge clusters, elk hair caddis, parachute baetis, baetis button emergers, small flying ants, and hoppers. For subsurface, stick with sow bugs, czech nymphs, caddis pupae, scuds, small PTs, lightning bugs and micro mayflies.
