Missouri Fishing News

LOTO Could Be A Test For Lake Sturgeon Resurgence........

 

Scientists report that the endangered lake sturgeon, a prehistoric fish that has been listed as an endangered species in Missouri, has been consistently spawning in the Mississippi River near West Alton, Missouri.

 

The Missouri Department of Conservation has made efforts to reintroduce lake sturgeon into the lower Mississippi River.  The fish had flourished in Missouri waters before dying off in the early 1900s due to over fishing and loss of habitat.

 

Since 2016, there have been six confirmed sturgeon catches in the Lake of the Ozarks.  MDC biologist Travis Moore says that they are monitoring the Lake of the Ozarks to see how a sturgeon population can do on it's own........

Missing Sailor Who Struck A Barge Has Been Recovered 

Crash Cause Determined....

 

The Missouri State Highway Patrol reports that the remains of 47 year old Brian E. Hale of Carrollton, Missouri have been recovered nearly a week after his sailboat collided with a moored barge along the Missouri River in the Kansas City area.

 

According to the Missouri State Highway Patrol, the collision occurred at around 1:30 pm on May 20, 2023 as Hale was piloting a sailboat on the Missouri River.  Reportedly, the vessel's rudder had broken and it drifted in front of a stationary barge moored on the Missouri RIver.

 

Hale was not able to change course and struck the barge.  It is believed that Hale fall overboard during the collision.  The vessel resurfaced on the back end of the barge, but Hale was unable to be found until six days later........

Mississippi River History

A Look Back At Ead's Bold Plan For Crossing The Mississippi River........

 

At 5:30 am on June 4th, 1874, coal hauler Joseph Gartside cracked his whip, urging his four horse team to pull his wagon across the newly completed Eads Bridge.  He led more than 700 wagons across the span, commencing cross-river commerce on wheels.

 

Talk of a bridge spanning the Mississippi River at St. Louis had been going on since the 1830s.  The project began in earnest after Chicago interests spanned the river at Rock Island, Illinois in 1856.

 

Eads had a bold solution for crossing the Mississippi River at St. Louis.  He would construct an arch bridge with three spans made of stone, steel and iron as opposed to the traditional truss bridge requiring more piers........

Quincy Hosting Fishing For Freedom Tournament........

 

On Friday, Veterans and active-duty military converged on Quincy for the start of Fishing for Freedom tournament weekend, which offers Warriors the opportunity to hit area lakes and the Mississippi River for the no-fee fishing tournament.

 

During the welcoming dinner at Quincy's Eagles Club, Adam Brocksieck says that they have 254 Warriors registered and 182 boaters.  He added that some locals usually enter at the last minute, so those numbers may change a bit.

 

The tournament proper will see Warriors head out for a day on the water on Sunday prior to returning for a public weigh-in on the Quincy riverfront.  Prizes will be awarded and one lucky winner will head home with a new boat.........

Wreck of the Montana Riverboat

Missouri River at St. Charles, Mo......

 

 

Reposted from St. Charles Mo. History & Genealogy. Just for Fun Facebook.. click here

 

RiverBil says.... An older film clip.  She is lying along the St. Louis County bank of the Missouri River across from St. Charles just up-river from the 370 Bridge. She has been covered with sand and mud now. Almost looks like a dike protruding from the bank that can be seen when driving across the 370 Bridge.

Don't listen to the narrator of the film clip, he does not know much about the history of the wreck, but the footage is very good..

Missouri River At Washington, Missouri

Highway 47 Bridge Lights Earn Final Approval........

 

According to Washington City Administrator Darren Lamb, the lighting system on the new Highway 47 bridge spanning the Missouri River is finally functioning properly.  The span had opened to traffic in late 2018.

 

Lamb says that the 47 Bridge lights are in the warranty phase.  He added that they're finally working the way that they are supposed to and now there is a one-year warranty period.

 

On Tuesday, Lamb advised the Washington Area Transportation Committee that he had heard from Tim Hellebusch, the Missouri Department of Transportation's managing engineer for the project, who said that the aesthetic lighting system had passed it's test........
