As I write this, we are getting ready to go to Bennett Springs for
the 25th Catch and Release outing. It is hard to believe it has been
twenty five years that we first start having these outing. This is the
start of the winter catch and release season in Missouri. The next
outing is the close of the season in Feb. It will be held at Montauk
Springs Feb. 10-11 2017. Watch for details in upcoming newsletters. All
our outings are meetings of good friends and great opportunities to
learn something. If you have never gone on one, you need to try it and
see for yourself the good time we have. Winter fishing is always good,
well almost always, snow, ice, single digit temperatures, can make it a
little more of a challenge. We do have some great days, weather
wise, with far fewer people on the streams.
MDC has stocked some local area parks with trout starting Nov. 1st. This is a great place to get away for a couple of hours during the fall and winter months. The parks are Boathouse Lake, Jefferson Lake in Forest Park, two lakes at Suson, Walker Lake, January-Wabash, Tillies, Koeneman, Wild Acres, Vlasis and O’Fallon Park. Check posted signs in park for regs.
Annual banquet will be on Jan. 21, 2017, watch for coming details.
If you have any questions, about anything, (I always have an opinion about everything) please give me a call.
