Missouri is Ready for Summer Float Trips


It’s been a wild spring for weather in Missouri and we’ve had plenty of rain.  But what comes up must go down – and they have. Our rivers and streams are ready for your great summer float trip.  The outfitters are standing by, the fish are biting, the sun is shining and Mother Nature has never looked better.  Whether you’re exploring a new float or revisiting an old and familiar friend, it’s time to get out on the river!
