Generation Schedule / Generation Schedule June 5-12
« Last post by SEARKJim on June 06, 2022, 05:14:12 PM »
SWEPCO has not published the generation schedule as of Monday PM (June 5) .  Any ideas on how to find the plan?  It is too far for us to drive to find an unfishable river.

Fire Away! / Re: Sycamore Rum

There are still quite a few spots on the river that people refer to that I have no idea of their location.  I wish I could help but I have no idea where Sycamore Run is.  Perhaps in time I'll find out.  I also find a difference recently in the replies, or lack thereof, to posts.  Have people lost interest in sharing information?  It appears so.

Is it still possible to park at and walk into Sycamore Run or did they stop that when they built the the houses?

🤔 Apparently an adjustment for a change!!!

The schedule is now showing high water starting at 7:00 and running till 1:00 on Saturday! 😱

We’ll be doing things a little differently Saturday, but I DO like fishing falling water! 😎

The Upper River / Re: White Bass

Thanks Jeff.  While we don't plan on hitting Albert Pike and the upper river, we just use it as a fall back if unscheduled generation happens.  We ran into that last March, none to speak of published and they had a repair situation at the dam and were generating 24 hours a day from Monday through Thursday.  No generation on Friday when we were scheduled to leave.

The Lower Little Mo' / Fishing 2/17/22
« Last post by Johndavis on March 18, 2022, 03:41:42 PM »
I arrived at 0945 Riverside to find only one person on the Wall fishing. I stepped in one of my favorite areas below the stocking ramp and got into fish almost immediately. The fish really were active through out the morning, but seemed to just shut down about noon. I moved down to Hinds Bluff, where Gordon and Randy were into fish. I fished from Butt Buster and got a few fish and some hits. Gordon gave me one of his chartreuse jigs. I did not have the same amount of success they were having with it, so switched to a chartreuse ugly fly. That was the trick and produced fish all afternoon. Much of the time was pretty obscene! I actually caught two fish by the either broken off or cut off tippet and strike indicator. Both acted like a normal caught fish until I pulled them up to find my hook on the indicator and about 18" of tippet. Must have been the same person, as both were multiple stick on type indicators, but about 4 of them. Anyway I was able to unhook one fish completely and the other I had to just cut off at the mouth since what looked like a pink weenie was too deep to get out. I have never done that before and did not see the indcator until my fly hooked it.

There is a good mix of fish in the river right now. I caught a lot of normal stockers, as well as some really pretty colored larger fish.

Anyway it was a great day, chartruese was the color at Hinds Bluff and March Brown was the color at the Park. I got in a bad storm driving home, but got home safely, John D

The Upper River / Re: White Bass

There’s a very significant White Bass run up into the Upper River!

Timing is huge and it could even be happening right now, though I haven’t heard anything myself. Water temperatures and flow levels are the trigger and I suspect temperatures are probably in line, but there hasn’t been a lot of flow.

Might have to check in with SWAHA or Self Creek Marina on the north end to see if they’ve heard.

I doubt that the rest of the lake’s feeder streams would have any runs - not big enough.

I’ve seen either Stripers or VERY large Whites all the way up to the confluence of Long Creek and the Little Mo’ above Albert Pike! 😲 There was one occasion there I had sunfish on and two or four big stripey things came up from green water after it! That sunfish was never so happy to be hauled up out of the water! 🤪

The Lower Little Mo' / Re: Are there scuds and/or sowbugs in the Little Mo
« Last post by Jeff Guerin on March 18, 2022, 02:33:19 PM »
Yep! You will find both is the short answer.

The sow bugs are there in decent numbers, but they tend to be quite small and are hardly ever seen out from under their rocks! Since there’s not tons of vegetation, like the limestone Ozark streams, they are not a primary food source.

The mayflies and Caddis are WAY more important, with stoneflies and midges coming in next.

That’s not to say sow bug and scud patterns won’t be useable. Just not my first choices…
