Description:

The James River is a river in southern Missouri. Its source is near the town of Diggins in Webster County. It begins on a northwesterly course, then turns southwest near Northview and passes near Springfield. From Springfield, it flows south to Galena where it becomes an arm of Table Rock Lake, a reservoir on the White River which is the emptying point for the river.

James River is a water source for the city of Springfield, and James River Freeway on the city's south side is named for it.

The James River, in southwest Missouri, features both scenic beauty and excellent fishing. Smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and spotted bass are present. Abundance and size structure are good. Excellent opportunities are also available to catch rock bass, channel catfish and carp. Anglers should remember that special regulations apply in the Black Bass Stream Management Area on the 23 miles of river between Hooten Town bridge (Stone Co. Rd. A-90) and the Highway 13 bridge at Galena. In this area, the minimum length limit on smallmouth bass and largemouth bass is 15", and the minimum length limit for spotted bass is 12". Anglers may harvest six black bass daily, of which only one may be a smallmouth bass. Below the Highway 13 bridge at Galena, Table Rock Lake regulations apply, and all black bass possessed must be at least 15". It is important for anglers to correctly identify the three species of black bass found in the James River.
