Default St. Louis Streams

Was wondering if anyone knew of some good streams near the surrounding St. Louis area. It doesn't have to have trout filled. I fish pretty frequently but it is mostly at county parks and well known fishing spots. I am tired of fishing elbow to elbow and fishing slammed spots all the time. Thanks in advance. Also if someone wants a fishing buddy pm me!

You may wish to check out the Ozark Anglers Forum. More specific to the Ozarks, but has some information there about the STL area, and if you register/post your question there, the responses will likely be more informative.

I have mostly been going for bass because I know they are in abundance but I'm am open for anything. Trout would be nice but that seems too far to drive every weekend. I have been meaning to try some of the streams south but I think most of them are used for floating.

There can be trout had within an hours drive of ST. Louis. I've caught them. there are tons of little creeks and streams all littered around the outskirts of the county that have plenty of fish in them.

Ozark Anglers is a good fourm, it can be alittle slow at times since its seems it the same group of folks always posting.

Where did you go for the trout? I guess I'll just have to drive around more.

Blue Springs creek. its in Borubon, MO. Then there is Mill creek, little piney and roudiuex in rolla. There are some other places with trout that are MUCH closer, but they are very tricky to come by and you have to know people who know people.

I will for sure try those places out sometime. I think I'm going to ask the guys up at THargrove for some places. Thanks.

They should tell you a couple of them. I've been going there for the better part of 15 years now and they STILL wont tell me some places.

Meramec State park out I-44 is within an hour of you and you can catch tons of stockers. I fish the creeks around here for smallmouth at the Joachim and Plattin creeks. The Meramec would be good too. I live 30 miles south of the Stl.
