South Fork of Spring River

This warm tributary of the Spring River begins near the town of Moko on the Arkansas/Missouri border in Fulton County. It flows about 40 miles through eastern Ozark hill country, pasture land, and oak-hickory forests. It is a gravel bottom stream with some silty areas that contains a good smallmouth bass and shadow bass population. Catfish are also stocked annually. There is an AG&FC access area (with boat ramp) in the town of Salem. Other access is afford by low water bridges on county roads and on private property. The best time to float is in the Spring when there is maximum flow.
