Re: Missouri Trout .... closer to St. Louis
definately stay away from Meramac Spring unless you are using a spinning real and dough bait. some of the wild blue ribbon areas have some nice trout in them. as far as the state parks i personally recommend bennett spring state park in Lebanon. it's under 3 hours from STL. i was there a couple of weeks ago and caught plenty. Glo balls and john deeres never fail. As far as fly shops in STL, definately go to T Hargroves. this is a great fly shop. Tom will not steer you wrong.
