Maramec Spring is an exceptionally beautiful spring and produces an average of 96,000,000 gallons of water per day.  The spring branch here is a mile long, with no fishing allowed upstream of the road bridge.  Unlike the other three Missouri trout parks, Maramec has no separate fishing zones. Owned and operated by the foundation authorized and funded up by Mrs. Lucy Wortham James, 300 of the park’s 1800 acres are available for public use. From 1826 to 1876, this area was the site of Maramec Iron Works, the first successful ironworks west of the Mississippi. In addition to trout fishing, Maramec Spring Park has a nice reception center, cafe, campground, picnic areas, two museums, playgrounds, hiking trails, tennis courts, and the historic ironworks for which it is so well known. For more information about Maramec Spring, be sure to see the website of The James Foundation located at http://www.maramecspringpark.com or call the James Foundation office at (573) 265-7124.  The hatchery office telephone number is (573) 265-7801, and you can reach the Maramec Museum at (573) 265-3527.

We like to think of our area as SMALLIEVILLE, MO USA and we enjoy catering to avid anglers.  Want to fish 3 streams on one float in one day? Fish 5 of the best smallmouth streams on two floats in two days. Fish for trout in the morning and smallmouth in the afternoon. Wade, float or use our access to launch your boat. Fish anytime of the day on our 6/10 mile Meramec River frontage. Good fishing opportunities any time of the year.

Meramec Scenic View is located on the upper Meramec River and 5 miles from the Huzzah & Courtois Creeks. We are located on a great stretch of the river for fishing due to the limited number of float outfitters and no public access.

Let us help you plan your next Missouri Ozark Fishing Trip.

Descend into the depths of Onondaga Cave State Park and drop into a world of wonder: towering stalagmites, dripping stalactites, and active flowstones help make the cave a National Natural Landmark and illustrate why Missouri is often called “The Cave State.” Visitors can take guided tours into the underground wonderland. But if you prefer the surface, the park’s Vilander Bluff Natural Area provides a panoramic view of the Meramec River. Easy access to the Meramec River allows visitors to canoe or fish in a bucolic setting.
