Meramec River Smallmouth on OzarkAnglers.Com

The MDC shared the most recent electrofishing data with me, which I provide here.  They haven’t written the report yet (due out next year), but the figure and tables provide most of the information we would want.  The decrease in catch rates per hour in 2015 are due to a change in the method they used for sampling the fish rather than a reduction in the fish population.

Also, I went fishing yesterday on the middle Meramec, and I caught only small fish in or near current.  It was a rather slow day, though a beautiful one.
