North Fork of the White

The North Fork of the White River is Missouri’s premiere, freestone trout river.  It’s divided into three sections:  Above Rainbow Spring, which dumps 82 million gallons of cold, clear water into the North Fork, are primarily warm-water fish, including smallmouth bass and goggleye.  The middle section between Rainbow Spring and James Bridge is considered to be some of the best trout fishing in the state.  Brown trout are stocked annually, but rainbow trout haven’t been stocked in years, making them primarily wild.  Warm species of fish abound in the lower section including stripers.  They actually traveled above the falls at Dawt Mill in 2011 when Norfork Lake rose to record levels.
