Re: Current River
Upper current is definitly trout water, lower is best for smallies. The upper is right around Montauk and thats pretty much all trout there. Been fishing that area for a long time now and havent even seen a single smallie. You need to go much further down river to start finding smallies, the browns get too big and angry and eat all the small fish there. Any piece of water running thru state land is good to go. Knock your self out. For finding access points you can check out the MDC's website ( mdc.mo.gov ), you can go register or read thru the posts at forums.ozarkanglers.com and gather lots of info. You can wade it but you will have a much more enjoyable time on that section in a driftboat or a canoe.
