I visit St. Louis a couple times a year and I've never considered fly fishing up there. I may have to pack my gear on my next "work" trip up there.

I just got back from Missouri. Hit up Maramec Springs and Lake Taneycomo. Caught good numbers at Maramec Springs and one good one. I was looking to get a big one at Taneycomo, but no luck. A couple other people pulled out decent ones.

I may try again when I go back to Missouri for Thanksgiving weekend.

Where are you going to be around at? I'll be down by Taney house sitting at Table rock. I'm probably going to spend atleast one day out at Roaring River, its a neat park and I caught a bunch of there.

My parents live in St. Louis, so I would be staying there. However, I may head down to Springfield to visit my brother as he can't make it back for Thanksgiving. If I head to Springfield, I would definitely hit up the trophy waters at Taneycomo

Here is info including the blue ribbon water in Missouri.

Trout Areas | Missouri Department of Conservation

I frequently fish the Current River below Montauk State Park. Sometimes you can fish the whole day in the blue ribbon area and not see another angler. I'll be there this weekend! I catch lots more browns there than I do inside the park.

This website gives detailed info on access points and how to get to them. Handy dandy!

Well if you're going to be on the current outside montuak this weekend then you will not have the stream to yourself. I will be there as well stalking the fishes.

Cool, I'll be the right-handed guy trying to cast left-handed. Just had surgery on my right shoulder and I have to get our annual last weekend in October Montauk trip in. I don't know how far downstream I will go, I have to see how my shoulder feels.

I'll be wearing a blue Simms hat. Shouldn't be too hard to see me if we are both below the park.

Looks like I'm going to fish the Current on Saturday. This will be my first try at a Missouri trout stream. If anyone has some good advice on where a good starting access point would be or some flies that I should try I would be grateful. I am thinking about starting just outside of Montauk and seeing how far I can get. As for flies I have some olive mohairs, griffiths, adams, elk hair caddis, renegades, woolys etc. I hope I do alright. This will be only my 4th time trout hunting.
