Default Re: river/creek trout near West St. Louis?..Help, please

Welcome to MO and this site.

Our Trout park system does a good job keeping us Midwesterners into fish.

The rivers below or around them yield fish and are stocked monthly. During the winter you can Catch and Release in all of the parks.

If you have kids our four parks has Kid's day in May and what a hoot it is to watch "Barbie" rods land 3 and 5 pound trout while Dads watch.

Look up winter urban lake program. It starts C&R in Novemeber through January with Feb. catch and keep. They recommend no bait during the C&R time but some do. When catch and keep happens the trout are all caught up in 2 weeks time.

Montauk has Babtist and Tan Vat access below the park (great fish early season)
Meramac has Cardiac Hill and Suicide Access (and respect the name)
Bennett has NRO putin both up and down stream

Here is a link I use for water levels and just looking at what is happening in MO for trout fishing. Go to the bottom to see other links.

Good luck... CritterGetter
