    June 6 & 7 are Free Fishing Days in Missouri

    One weekend each year, all you need

    to go fishing is a pole and a yen to relax.

    JEFFERSON CITY—Missourians who have not been fishing in awhile might consider going June 6 and 7. That weekend anyone in Missouri can fish free on public waters.

    The Conservation Department has designated the first weekend following the first Monday in June as Free Fishing Days. This gives Missouri residents and nonresidents alike a Saturday and Sunday to discover – or rediscover – the fun and relaxation of fishing without having to buy a permit.

    Requirements for special permits still may apply at county, city or private fishing areas. Elsewhere, anyone can fish without state permits on Free Fishing Days. All other fishing regulations remain in effect.

    The Conservation Department has a wealth of free information about how and where to fish. Go to mdc.mo.gov/events/freefishdays for details about Free Fishing Days, or visit mdc.mo.gov/fish/fishrt for a weekly fishing report. Links to a host of fishing information, including fishing events, are available at mdc.mo.gov/fish/. Visit www.mdc.mo.gov/227 for a list of fishing publications and how to order them, or contact the Conservation Department Distribution Center, P.O. Box 180, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0180, pubstaff@mdc.mo.gov.

    I usually try to take someone that has never been before. After that they usually will buy a permit and continue fishing all year.
