What’s New at Westover Farms?
We hope you are enjoying the great fall weather. The fall foliage at Westover is spectacular this year! We hope you can make it down soon to enjoy the beautiful colors. We want to let you know that we have installed speed bumps throughout the property. There are also new signs stating “Caution Speed Bumps” and “5 mph” too. This is to ensure the safety of our fisherman and families that are staying on site. Please slow down and enjoy the scenery before driving over the speed bumps. Finally, don’t forget that a gift certificate to Westover Farms makes a wonderful gift for that special outdoor person in your life. You can either call us at 573-743-6284 or purchase it online from our website. We are continuing to move forward with the new addition to the conference center, “Dry Creek Center”. Dry Creek Center’s commercial kitchen and dining room will be perfect for larger corporate events and family reunions.
BOOK NOW! If you are looking for a quick getaway before Thanksgiving, there is a house available this weekend and next weekend. There are also a couple of houses available the first 3 weekends in December. Please call 573-743-6284 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Water Conditions & What They Are Biting On
Water levels are low and clear. In the last several weeks we’ve only gotten about an inch of rain. Fishing is still tough because the fish can see your every move. However, people are catching fish. We recommend using the olive zebra midge, streamers, and egg patterns with light tippet. Let us know what works best for you. We look forward to hearing from you soon!
