Not sure you would get too far with the Meramec being as low as it is. Just downstream it's mostly riffles,and upstream near the 109 bridge it gets shallow again,1-2ft when near normal, I was shocked how shallow it was when I went there last fall. Have you been up to the NEW Old Hwy 30 bridge to fish the ledge? I want to try that out,but have not been able to get around to it.Maybe get to it middle of next week. Depends on where I'm working. I'll shoot you a PM when I know for sure, probably after 4pm.

I stopped at Rt66 a couple of weeks ago when I was at 6 Flags on Memorial Day, the majority were putting in and going to the mouth of the Big, the one bunch I was talking to were in a little 12' with a 15 hp. The river looked good going up stream. I think the mouth to the Big is before you would get to the Hwy 109 bridge.

I used to fish the bank just up from the old boat ram in Mini Haha and caught a lot of drum and car out of there. There is suppose to be a couple of good cat holes in that area tool

You probably could but I'm not sure I can get out in the river from GW it's pretty low.

Give me a holler I'll meet you down there.

I was thinking about Tues. Mon. is our last day tearing off at Mehlville High,don't want to go after that,I'm pretty grubby and pitch-burned after tear-off. I'll give you a holler Mon. night to set up something.Boat is cleaned up and batteries are charging as I type this.
