The MDC is offering Free Fishing Days June 7 and 8. During Free Fishing Days, anyone can fish in Missouri without having to buy a fishing permit, trout stamp, or trout park daily tag.
Normal regulations remain in effect, such as limits on size and number of fish an angler can keep. Some private fishing areas may still require permits, and trespass laws remain in effect on private property.
Conservation makes Missouri a great place to fish, and Free Fishing Days encourages people to sample the state's abundant fishing opportunities.
Public fishing areas are available in every county in Missouri. Many state-owned fishing areas also have special facilities for anglers with disabilities. Contact your local MDC office for Free Fishing Days near you, or visit the website here.
