It was an all day drive just because of all the gravel, which added an extra 60 miles to the trip.. And a good 4 hours was wasted while I cast to every pool we drove past. lol

Oh, and I don't think I'll ever be able to get ALL the dust out of the jeeps back seats! :face_palm:

I grew up doing the same thing! As you can see, we have many options here in the Ozarks.. If you look through my photobucket you'll find a wealth of similar photos. Hmmm.. Maybe I should post fishig reports here?

Ozarks Gravel Road Trip

Thought I'd share this with my fellow Missourian Jeepers, here's the backfill for the cut and paste below:

The Missouri Smallmouth Alliance has MDC approved signs at all public accesses encouraging anglers to release quality smallmouth (it shows how an 18 inch Smallie is an 8-10 year old fish and reminds anglers of our responsibility as well as the benefits of a quality fishery)

Most of these places have the signs torn down by the following year.

This year I volunteered to distribute signs to 9 different local public accesses on the Niangua and Little Niangua, my note are below:

MSA sign Trip

Charity- someone had physically ripped the previous MSA sign right off of the screws. *

The water was very skinny, but exceptionally gorgeous.. *

No fish though*

Wait, what did that sign say?



Big John Access
Already had a fisherman there, very Smallie lookin water with deep pockets.. *Had one 11 inch Smallie (or monster gogglie?) *swipe at the buzzbait, but thats it.

Williams Ford
We didn't have directions to stop here, but we decided to check it out anyway. Really pretty water:

*but no bite. *And nowhere to hang a sign!

Moon Valley
Full of people, typical skinny warm water... *The sign was ripped off, not seeing any fishing reg signs?

Bennett
Full of people, signage was quite apparent..

Barclay
Didn't stop to fish


Leadmine*
Didnt stop to fish, MSA sign was ripped off of the post.. *I'm seeing a trend developing with this:


Mule Shoe
I think I like the Lil Niangua.. *It's really fishy lookin', and it produced my first fish of the day, a fat lil spot, I think.. *Red eyed and feisty...

I honestly expected a few more from that really fishy water, but alas..

Lots of these types of Fords:


Then we trucked on over toward Fiery Fork and found a couple more unmarked accesses along the way where I hooked the only Smallie of the day..

**We also got some amazing jeep photos..




Fiery Fork

Still absolutely gorgeous Smallie water, it was running really late and Patty was hungry so we didn't get to stick around long.


*I did manage one more spot just a bit too far downstream to run it back up and get a photo..

141 miles, most of it gravel. *The Jeep requires a dusting, me thinks. Still have to hit Prosperine, I'll prolly do that next week.*
