A life of purity & peace on the Eleven Point River

The Eleven Point River is my favorite place to float. This river is the purest in Missouri and has over 30 springs flowing into it.  

The largest spring in all the National Forest is Greer Spring. It flows for about one mile then enters into the river right before the Highway 19 bridge.

I went on a float recently with my sister and her husband. We floated the first day from Turner South to Whitten access (6.1 miles). On the second day, we floated from Whitten to Riverton access (8 miles).

The river is running higher than normal this time of year with all the rain we have had through the winter and springtime. Some places we weren’t able to stand and fish at.  

However, we caught and released several trout each day and had a great time. The weather was calling for rain and scattered storms each day, but we only got a little rain the second day.
