Mill Creek, southwest of Newburg, MO, and part of the Ozark Plateaus aquifer system, is one of a handful of Missouri streams with a naturally reproducing trout population. Mill Creek and its diverse ecosystems depend upon cold, clear water from the many springs found along its course for health and productivity. Wilkins Spring discharges about 14,400 cubic feet of water per hour and serves as a major source for Mill Creek.
