    I think there is a river that runs right by Galena, but I can't remember the name of it. If you want to fish a Kansas river from the bank you better be ready to hike through the jungle and get muddy! If I were you, I'd make the hour drive down to Noel, MO and hit the Elk River. You can rent a canoe for the day for about $20 and fish small mouth, trout and flathead. It is a gourgess, spring fed river.

    The Spring river runs right through there and theres an old hydro dam at Riverton.Excellent fishing for catfish,bass and crappie.Also close to lots of strip pits with good fishing.

    the spring river runs through right in that area. Or you can make a treck to the west and fish the neosho at oswego. Theres also more strip pits then you'll know what to do with just north of galena
