Meramec River

The Meramec River system may be the most important recreational river area in Missouri due both to the high quality of these five major streams and their proximity to the largest metropolitan area in the state. The Meramec harbors nearly every game fish species found in the Ozarks.  The smallmouth bass is the most sought after species, along with rainbow and brown trout in the area below Meramec Spring, but largemouth are also very common, non-native spotted bass are abundant in the lower half of the river, and goggle-eye (the northern rock bass, to be exact) are targeted by many of the local anglers.
