Fishing on the Gasconade River

I spent the September 11th weekend in Waynesville, MO for the annual Missouri Outdoor Communicators Conference. We had the opportunity to float down the Gasconade River most of Sunday and do some fishing. The scenery was spectacular. Dramatic turns in the river opened up to long stretches where you could see far down the banks. Tall Ozark mountains could be seen in all directions around the river, creating scenic backgrounds you envision while reading a book. Other than our group, we saw maybe 4 or 5 other crafts on the water. The float was quite peaceful. I was excited to see all the structure available for the fish and we sure caught a lot of them. Throughout the day, we caught five species including largemouth, kentucky, smallmouth, goggleye, and sunfish.
