The Missouri State Highway Patrol yesterday opened the Osage River from the Route B Bridge to Bagnell Dam for recreational boating.

In a statement, the patrol said, “Boaters should avoid creating wakes in areas still experiencing high water conditions and that boaters should be alert for floating debris.”

The section of the Osage from the Missouri River to the Route B Bridge in St. Thomas, Mo., remains closed to boating. The level is dropping, but there are still flooded structures downstream from the bridge. That closure will remain in place until further notice.
