Re: Meramec River at Cardiac Hill
I was down there a few weeks ago, but fishing a couple miles above the park, and had noticed lots of changes in the river. The changes this year seemed much more dramatic than in the previous years. (I have yet to fish anywhere below the park this year) Where I was is usually full of fish, smallies and rocks, cruising along. But I only saw one rock (and only caught one shad). An area that's 150 yds long, used to be about 7-8' deep with some deeper scour holes in it, is now just 2-3' deep and completely flat. It was almost a new river, but the lack of fish really surprised me.
