Default Re: Best destinations in Missouri?

If you're in the St. Louis area, you can head out Hwy 40 just past the river and take Hwy 94 south to the August A Busch Conservation Area where there are something like thirty lakes and ponds with lots of opportunities for what's I'd call "semi-rural" warmwater fishing. The upper Meramec has been good to me with regards to smallmouth in the past and if you head up around where it meets with the Courtois, the water is still pretty clear.

Of course, the upper Current River and the North Fork of the White are excellent trout fisheries...
