Meramec River at Cardiac Hill
Went down yesterday for 1/2 day of fishing. Steelville Gage was 630 and dropping.
Fishing was tough!!! Wading was tough!! Both could have been better.
Water was a bit fast and green. I did not see the fish like we used to 2 years ago. I am afraid the 2 years of floods has really changed things. I hope it was still a bit early.
Anyway hooked up a nice one that took off down stream without stopping to snag me up and get off on some moss.
The best fishing I had was around the Cardiac trail end.
All my hits were on Flash back or Gold Ribbed Hairs ear and soft hackle hairs ear. A couple of fishers suggested stone fly's.
Good luck of you go. and If you do somewhere at trail end you will find my nippers, knot tying tool, and forceps. They fell off my magnets during the hike up Cardiac Hill.
