I am writing hoping to get some insight and advise from anyone familiar with the Jacks Fork river in MO or the Mountain View, MO area. I am going on a weeklong trip starting Oct 24th to the Mountain View area and I have invested in a 5mm thick wetsuit, after jealously seeing you guys snorkeling all the time, and am hoping to get some snorkeling in (I know from reading that snorkeling season is basically over but this is the only time I've got!)
I'm from Texas and used to water that isn't so cold, so after reading some posts here I was convinced investing in a 5mm wetsuit was something I needed to do for snorkeling in the southeast which I hope to do more of in the future. I am hoping this suit will be ok for this time of year in MO... but in all honestly I am not sure!
I guess I am hoping for any suggestions of good snorkeling locations. I have a few days to escape the craziness and really want to see some cool spots. I'm doing as much research as I can to make the most of the trip, so any additional advice would be much much appreciated! I am hoping to see some cool fishes
