Eleven Point River

There are two rivers in Missouri that are the most sought after as far as scenic beauty and tranquility, as well as fish-ability - the Current and the Elevenpoint Rivers. The Elevenpoint starts like most rivers in central Missouri, from the Ozarks hills, but it gets boosted by one of Missouri’s largest springs - Greer Spring, which dumps more than 200 million gallons of clear, cold water into the Elevenpoint. Rainbows and browns abound below the spring, making its waters perfect for floaters who love to spin or fly fish for trout. The Elevenpoint is also part of the Ozark National Scenic Waterways, protected from development. It flows 138 miles south and joins the Spring River near Black Rock, Arkansas.

Brian Sloss fishing report, 4/13/16

Posted by Phil Lilley on April 15th, 2016


Took a guide trip out yesterday, Adam from KC.  We ran Turner to Whitten.  Fishing was outstanding in the morning, with probably 20 fish landed, the biggest was a fat female of close to 17 inches.  After lunch, the fishing dropped off a lot, with only 2 or 3 landed and a couple others hooked.  The most effective technique proved to be fishing a white/grey, 1/16thoz marabou jig under and indicator about 5 ft, on a fly rod.  Pat’s rubber legged stone caught a few as well.  Threw a couple different streamer patterns as well, but only hooked one that way.  Great guy to spend the day on the river with.

Winter Smallies, Brian Sloss

Took long time client, Edward, and his son in law, Jason, on 2 half day guide trips this weekend to chase winter smallies in 60 and 70 plus degree weather. The fishing was great, though the weather was windy and drizzly on the Sun trip. Marabou jigs on a fly rod were the ticket both days. Even got a few bonus trout. Here are the highlights.


Very nice video from the river
