Canoeing/Floating

Floating Missouri's streams is a fantastic way to enjoy our state’s great outdoors. Whether your passion is angling for smallmouth or rock bass, keeping an eye out for elusive wildlife, or simply drifting downstream with the current, a day on the river will lift your spirit.

Get Free "Stash Your Trash" Bags

Don't let lack of gear stop you from enjoying Missouri's streams by canoe or kayak. The list below can help you find float outfitters that work with the Missouri Stream Team program to provide free Stash Your Trash red mesh bags. These handy bags help you keep Missouri streams clean and healthy while you’re having fun on the water. Stash your own trash, and be sure to pick up litter you encounter, too!

Missouri's streams are not only beautiful and full of life. They're a big part of Missouri's outdoor recreation economy. Please support the businesses that participate in the Stream Team's Stash Your Trash program.
