Warm Fork Spring River ?

Recommended Posts

Really? No one knows ANYTHING about this river that basically runs from West Plains thru Thayer and joins Mammoth Springs. Thought there would be some useful info out there. Apparently................they want to keep the riff raff out. :hope-my-fake-smile-works-again:

Warm Fork of the Spring River is mostly in MO and joins below the dam at Mammoth. I have fished it around town and did ok, nothing spectacular.

The South Fork in Ark. is a better river to fish. Bigger water, bigger fish.

You're right about narrow riffles, kinda long in distance and a few too. Water looks nice, coming from that spring and that was what caught my eye, though I have found out a satellite view can fool you. Looks like it holds enough water year round. I suppose you better have a kayak/canoe if you wish to go any distance on it.

It caught my attention once several years ago when I was staying in mammoth springs fishing on spring river, I noticed it had a lot more water in it than it normally does when I was driving over the 63 bridge one afternoon after fishing the spring so I decided to go down to the town boat ramp in thayer and fish it. I put my waders on and started fishing with my ultralight spinning outfit and a small rapala crank and caught several smallmouth in the 8-10in range and one that was probably 16. went back the next morning and didn't do as good although I did catch a couple of trout, it was in early april and I guess the water was still cold enough for the trout. I don't think I would make a special trip to fish it, but if your in the area and fishing on spring river or the 11point and it has enough water in it you can catch some fish.
