Location of the Fox River Watershed
Fox River and its largest tributary, the Little Fox River, originate in southeastern Iowa. Both streams travel in a southeasterly direction before they join approximately 2.25 miles northwest of Kahoka, Missouri. In Missouri, the Little Fox River flows through northeastern Scotland County into northwestern Clark County to its confluence with Fox River, which flows through Clark County to its confluence with the Mississippi River approximately 7.5 miles southwest of Keokuk, Iowa. Major tributaries to the lower Fox River are Honey Creek and Sugar Creek. Honey Creek originates in west-central Clark County, flows southeasterly to U.S. Highway 61, then northeast to its confluence with Fox River approximately 2.5 miles southeast of Alexandria, Missouri. Sugar Creek originates near Kahoka and flows southeastward to its confluence with Honey Creek in southeastern Clark County (Figure Lo01).
