Myatt Creek

Myatt Creek is an eastem Ozark stream that originates near the Arkansas-Missouri border in Fulton County. It flows southeasterly for about 20 miles then enters the Spring River near the town of Hardy. It is a fairly shallow stream with few pools over 5 feet deep. The bottom is mostly gravel and sand. The water is clear. It contains good populations of smallmouth and spotted bass, and shadow bass. Most of the smallmouth will be 10- to 12-inches in length but there are 20-inch fish in this creek.

As with many of the smaller streams, it is floatable by canoe only in the Spring. There is access to the creek at low water bridges on county roads and through private property but only with permission.
