  • With the cold of winter finally out of Missouri, what better way to celebrate than to grab your fishing poles and enjoy a day outside in the warmth of spring?  The Department of Conservation, many local businesses and conservation partners have come together to host the annual Kids Fishing Day at Maramec Spring Hatchery on May 17from 6:30 a.m. to 8:15 p.m.


    At Maramec Spring Hatchery, the Missouri Department of Conservation stocks the half-mile strip of fishing stream daily and the entire upper portion of the spring branch will be reserved for children 15 years of age and younger.  The stream will continuously be stocked with rainbow trout throughout the day to ensure that your eager little fisherman or woman gets their perfect catch. Each participant will receive their own goodie bag, with hot dogs and soda provided for lunch. 
    There will also be fishing contests and nature activities taking place throughout the day.

There is no better or more relaxing pastime than spending the day with a rod and reel in your hand.  Kids should be encouraged to get involved in fishing, and experiencing the thrill of the catch. The beautiful state of Missouri, which is home to more than one million anglers, is the perfect place to start. 
    It’s a great way to spend the day and make some memories in the process.
