Been doing some research on SE Missouri rivers, Washington State Park located on Mineral Fork, St Fancois State Park located on Big River,reading where Big River flows through the park for a distance of three miles with many streches of both Big River and Coonville Creek shallow,wadeable with easy access banks within the park, any info would be appreciated, may spend several weeks that area come September.

When I was there, baits that worked well were clear chartreuse twistertail grubs with metal flake, clear Olive twistertail with metal flake, chartreuse topwater baits, and I had some success with my pearl sparkleminnow. The fish in these waters were very touchy about color. Floater/diver baits should work well. A lot of deep holes, interspersed with long fast water runs with lots of wood cover. The water's clear so flouro lines would definitly not hurt.

Here are a few sites that give some details on the Big River and the Mineral Fork branches off it. The Missouri Department of Conservation also has an Ozark Smallmouth Bass Fishing map that give good info.

Got both of those sites listed under my favorites.

USDA Forest Service, Mark Twain National Forest,Recreational Activities,RV Trailer Space/Camping also lists some access sites for the four forest areas.
