Trout Fishing

Known for its premier trout fishing, Roaring River is regularly stocked by the hatchery located within the park. The hatchery is managed by the Missouri Department of Conservation, and produces more than 250,000 rainbow trout annually. Fishing licenses and trout tags are available at the CCC lodge, which also sells bait, tackle, camping supplies, and food.
