Fishing Holes

Ancient Fishing Holes & Timeless Ozark Mountain Streams

Our fishing holes have been luring sportsmen for more than 130 years! Before the turn of the 20th century resorts and fishing clubs began to line the banks of the Big Piney, Gasconade and Roubidoux rivers. Anglers from Saint Louis and beyond trekked to Pulaski County. They used railroads, wagon hacks, and early highways to rendezvous with legendary guides Walter Graham, Dwight Rench, and others.

Today, travel to Pulaski County’s wild rivers is a breeze- you can even fly direct from Saint Louis!

Hit the river at one of our four public access areas on the Big Piney or Gasconade to fish for Black Bass, Rock Bass, White Bass, and Catfish.

Professional kayak angler Drew Gregory fishes the Gasconade River- where hard fighting smallmouth bass thrive!

In Waynesville, sometimes nicknamed “Spring City,” the majestic Roubidoux Spring empties into Roubidoux Creek. The stream then races three miles north to join the Gasconade. This stretch of Ozarks trout stream (white & red ribbon) is one of Missouri’s best kept secrets!

Today’s guides carry on the spirit of Pulaski County’s pioneer guides. Book a trip with them for an Ozarks adventure of a lifetime!
