River Description


From the StreamTeach website, linked below:

Can't get out on land that touches the Missouri bank because this is private property owned by the City of Saint Louis (for the water treatment plant). Security is no longer allowing folks to get out of their boats.

There is a nasty low-head dam in the middle of the shoals,100 yards or so below Blockhouse but above the other play features. "Oil Can Hole" is a dangerous life-threatening hole that is difficult to rescue from.

Detailed information is available at StreamTeach.
