St. Peters, MO opened the 370 lakeside park!!!
St. Peters RV Park (http://www.stpetersmo.net/rvpark.aspx)

Looks pretty neat, but havent wetted a line there. When my family and I drove through there were a few people bank fishing (Didnt stop to see how they were doing)

Other than the rental price of the small boats being high (The other serious issue is absolutely no shade)!!!

One other issue:
FISHING RULE--CATCH AND RELEASE

Bass, Blue Gill and Channel Catfish are on a Catch-and-Release Rule until further notice.

Bingo.

I went there for a couple hours about 3 weeks ago to try out my new Terrova (Which I love!) I was mostly just playing with the motor but we slow trolled some grubs and cranks and I caught 2 White Bass and a Drum. I heard they stocked some Bass last fall but didnt catch any. My graph showed tons of fish and I assume a good portion of them were Carp and Gar. I never saw any readings deeper then 8 feet and it was 7-8 feet through most of the lake. I did see a decent amount of cover out there though. Not sure what it was.

I didn't go all the way to the other end of the lake. There is a spot about 2/3 of the way down from the boat launch where the lake gets narrow. It's right next to the camping area. The depth went quickly to 2 feet in that area and I decided not totake my pretty new trolling motor any further.

I forgot to mention that a guy I talked to near the ramp said he knew someone that was catching bullhead cats out of there too. I didnt see any caught but if it's true it just goes to show what a mixed bag that little lake is right now. It will be interesting to see what happens with it when people are able to keep fish. They really need to get the rough fish cleared out.

And if the flood water got in there, I wonder if the asian carp got in?

I didnt see any but I saw some Gar so if the Gar got in I am sure the Asian Carp are in there too. I also saw lots of big fish on my graph and I have a feeling most of them were Carp.

carp? is catch and release bowfishing allowed? Lol! ya if the river flooded that lake then the asians WILL be there, as they like to hang in the slack water areas. the word is already out with the cattin community and from what I hear, there is not much to speak of in the lake yet.

I'm curious to hear how you did. I'm gonna guess you found a couple white bass at least.
