While it is well known that Trout like cold water streams, people often don't think about fishing in the winter - other than ice-fishing in the north.
Many Shell Knob anglers go over to Roaring River State Park, near Cassville, Missouri. The fishing park is in great shape and offers less crowded conditions in the winter for the Catch and Release of trout.
Roaring river is very clear and offers some nice three and four pounders', with reports of several trout over 5 pounds.
Catch and Release continues until March 1st, after which you can harvest your trout and take them home for dinner.
Rainbows are starting to go into spawning and exhibting interest in bright colored jigs and lures.
