Brief Directions: Highway 94 out of St. Charles, MO to Dresser Island Access.
Best Season: Winter
Description: While photographing along the Mississippi River at Dresser Island Access, I captured an image of a white pelican that had just scooped up a 5 - 6 pound Asian carp. As a fisheries biologist I was excited to see the native pelican doing its part to eradicate an aquatic invasive fish that has become pervasive in the Mississippi River.
