This stream has one of the more impressive waterfalls in the state. Usually it's even more impressive than this, but the volume of flow is way, way down due to a major drought in the area.

A view across the huge pool below the falls. This pool is crowded with yelling and screaming swimmers just about 24/7 during the summer months, but it's nice and peaceful now.

A nice run on the creek below the falls. During the warmer months, this part of the creek is full of feeding smallmouth bass and longear sunfish.

I got out this past weekend on a little tributary of a famous trout and smallmouth stream in Missouri. It was more of a hiking trip, although I did bring along a fly rod and take a few casts...The stream holds a mixture of smallmouth bass and longear sunfish, but it's just too late in the year and I got fairly skunked. But even getting skunked is a pleasure on this stream.

I hope you all will forgive another post about a non-trout fishing venture.

BEEEEautiful! Too bad you got skunked, MO. It is getting late in the year, I haven't caught much during my last few kayak outtings. We saw SNOW flurries up here today, with supposedly several inches falling in the Upper Penninsula. It will be time to get the ice-fishing gear warmed up pretty soon...

P.S. Longear sunnies are one of my favorites, SOOO pretty and eager takers of flies.
No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

We're headed in the general direction of snow out here too, though I'm sure not as quickly as up in Michigan:) We had our first little flurry a little over a week ago, though it lasted less than a half hour and didn't amount to anything. I do think the warm-water stuff is done for the year, at least for the most part.

There aren't any trout in this particular stream, although it sure looks like there should be.

GEEEZ, MO, you had snow flurries before WE did? This sure has been a wacky, cold Autumn. We had two weeks of summer-like temps in early October (it broke 80 F up here!), then it seems like it has been nothing but cold, windy, rainy, etc. ever since. Made for some cold days in the kayak, let me tell you...
