CrossCurrents Fly Shop's Tip of the Week
The Rainbows have moved into shallower gravel and have made their spawning redds. So, watch where you step and DON'T TREAD ON REDDS!!! -Remember, the MO is a WILD TROUT fishery and the the fish in the river have the sole responsibility to make the fish for the future. The least we can do is to not disturb them or their redds when they are *doing their thing!*
