In reality, we love fishing the Ozarks streams and even trout parks during the Winter when the crowds are non-existent.
We have made a downloadable fishing calendar from January through August of 2011. Maybe a fun activity would be to download it and write in some potential fishing dates.
We at Family-Outdoors are working on a public access fishing resource right now. I have worked on counties alphabetically through Mississippi County as of this December 18, 2010 writing. I have them organized by county, so if you want to find all (at some point it really shall be nearly all of them) the fishing spots in a certain county, you can look through these, find out what species are present, and plan accordingly. A couple of other Family-Outdoors Resources are Smallmouth Central and Missouri Trout Fishing.
