• For many years now I have tried every summer to spend time on the Current River near Van Buren, Mo., swimming, boat riding, and of course fishing.
I’m not much of a fisherman, which is why my fishing mostly consists of smallmouth bass. Actually, the only fishing I have ever done on the Current River is for smallmouth bass and occasionally a hard-fighting shadow bass (goggle-eye), which I enjoy catching.
Like I said, I’m not much of a fisherman. I do not scout or do my homework, so it came as a surprise to me when talking to a good friend of mine about just what all the Current River has to offer.
After hearing many fishing stories I quickly realized the Current River isn’t just for smallmouth bass and goggle-eye.
