“The Ozarks of Missouri and Arkansas offer some of the finest trout fishing in the world, yet it is greatly overlooked as a fly fishing destination. The clear streams and rivers offer anglers a chance to chase the genetically pure strain of McCloud Rainbows on Crane Creek, as well as wild trout in other Ozark streams along with numerous other fisheries that provide habitat for Brown and Rainbow Trout in Missouri’s 300+ miles of spring fed waters.  In addtion, the Ozarks are home to world record size brown trout in the White River tailwater system and the Little Red River tailwater system.  In the end, the quality of fishing rivals many bucket-list destinations.” — Matt Tucker, Founding President of Gateway Chapter of Trout Unlimited
