    The Maramec River near St. James is pretty cold water and is more of smallmouth/trout fishery. I have never heard of anybody catching many catfish in it or even fishing for them in that area. Sorry I don't have better news for you.

    I go to school in Rolla, not too far from St. James and the people from around there always tell me that the streams around there are supposed to be great for smallmouth fishing. Alot of them will just wade up and down it and fish for them. Don't hear much about catfishing them though... hope this helps.
