Description of Water

The Eleven Point River is Missouri’s longest cold-water river and is home to both hatchery raised and stocked trout as well as a self-sustaining population of stream-bred trout and includes over 22 miles of trout habitat. This river is often overlooked as a trout fishing destination, but offers some of the most remote trout fishing in the state without the signs of civilization. The scenery on this river alone is worth the drive, the fact that there is a healthy population of trout is an added bonus.
