from the City to the County. Enjoy!
Just over 15 minutes west from Hwy 40 and 270, or 35 minutes from the St Louis Arch, the Busch Conservation area has over 30 lakes to fish from totaling 550 acres of water, and almost 7,000 acres of natural beauty.
The bait shop and fishing boat rental is found on the left side of the MO Dept. of Conservation huge visitors center which is surrounded by a pavilion, picnic tables, clean bathrooms and trails (both asphalt and earthen).
Suitable for family gathering events and picnics, dates, or just take a mini-vacation and get away from it all enjoying nature. Boat rides anyone? It might be one of the best bargains in town.

The reputation of this website is important, and I will not knowingly recommend anything that doesn't stand a good chance of being beneficial to viewers like you.
The program on the right is causing impressive results for men and women across the USA and came highly recommended from a trustworthy source.
However, if you're the kind of person who has difficulty sticking to a simple habit for 21 days, it's probably NOT for you.

"Fishing provides that connection with the whole living world. It gives you the opportunity of being totally immersed, turning back into yourself in a good way. A form of meditation, some form of communion with levels of yourself that are deeper than the ordinary self." -Ted Hughes
3) Spanish Lake
Spanish Lake Park has two lakes and is located in North St Louis County. (See map link below). The largest, Spanish Lake sizes in at 34 acres and the other is Sunfish Pond- slightly smaller at 31 acres.
Crappie fishing is what many come for here. Both lakes have fishing docks for the disabled and concrete fishing ramps for those wanting to use a boat. No gasoline engines allowed but trolling motors are OK.

4) Jefferson Lake and Forest Park
Except for the tall buildings beyond the park, you might forget you're in the heart of the city of St Louis when fishing the scenic 14 acre Jefferson Lake.
Fishing is also offered in other bodies of water in Forest Park except where posted otherwise. Jefferson Lake is on the east end of Forest Park, by Kingshighway and south of the skating rink.
Fishing here offers mostly bass, crappie and catfish. A Missouri fishing license is required. For permit or license on-line, please visit Missouri Department of Conservation.
