Missouri State Parks offers free fishing June 8-9

JEFFERSON CITY – Missouri State Parks, in conjunction with Missouri Dept. of Conservation, welcomes the public for a free fishing weekend June 8-9.
“We want to welcome anglers of all ages to our parks,” said Ben Ellis, director of the Division of State Parks. “This is a great opportunity to spend quality time making memories with family and friends during a free fishing weekend across Missouri.”
Fishing licenses, trout permits and prescribed area daily tags are not required to fish during this special weekend. Regular fishing regulations, such as size and daily limits, still apply. A summary of Missouri fishing regulations may be found on Mo. Dept. of Conservation’s webpage at https://huntfish.mdc.mo.gov/sites/default/files/downloads/2016_FishRegs.pdf.
“This is an extremely popular weekend,” said Lucas Bond, Communications Manager for Mo. Dept. of Conservation. “Missouri is home to about 1.1 million anglers.”
