Default Re: Spring Fishing at Bennett Spring and Maramec Spring in MO

Just wondering why you didn't mention terrestrials. Last year the local fly shop was sold out of black foam beetles, which they were apparently feeding the trout at the time. Any recommendations there?[/QUOTE]

Not sure, haven't fished Bennett much in April. That time of year though Box Elder bugs are out along streambank vegetation doing the nasty, and I'd imagine they plop into the stream and trout key in on them. A black or iridescent green foam beetle in #14 would work.
