Description of Water

Blue Spring Creek in Crawford County is spring-fed, and 5 to 20 feet wide. Backcasting room is not easy to find, but those who can negotiate the tight quarters may be rewarded with wild Rainbow Trout. The drought years of the past have taken its toll on this stream, but there still are trout in this stream. When wading this stream please take note of any spawing redds and tread around the area. This It is state-owned for its entire length downstream of the Salvation Army Camp to its junction with the Meramec River.
