Bennett Spring State Park

Tip of the week 

The dry fly fishing has been extremely good the last couple of weeks. Lots of size 18-22 mayfly patterns coming off. Black caddis, renegades and Griffiths gnats have also been productive. Fishing bead head or plain midge patterns 18-24 inches under the surface have also been effective. Sink tip or sinking fly lines with Cracklebacks have been effective and also can fish them under the surface and slow strip them under a floating line . Colors vary from week to week. Fishing this past weekend was good but the fish have started to be a little more selective

Seven-day forecast 

Fishing should be very good since the fish have had very little fishing pressure. Stop in and see us when you are in the Bennett area .

Monday December 15, We were supposed to have clouds and sun today. Warm and a little windy. It is supposed to be a cooler week coming up with high temps in the 40s toward the weekend. So far the fishing pressure has been very light though the winter season, We look for fishing to remain good. Lots of reports of people catching 50 plus fish per day. The Niangua river has also been fishing pretty well.
