February Fishing Opportunity Coming to St. Joseph

Rainbow trout stocked in urban lakes by the Missouri Department of Conservation provide a winter fishing opportunity, and starting on Wednesday, February 1, anglers can keep trout from two Saint Joseph lakes.

MDC stocked trout last autumn in Krug Park Lagoon and Everyday Pond.

Anglers could fish for them on a catch-and-release basis.

Starting February 1, anglers with the proper permits can keep up to four trout.

MDC stocked trout in Krug Park in partnership with the St. Joseph Parks, Recreation, and Civic Facilities Department.

Missouri Western State University partnered to stock the trout in Everyday Pond.

MDC’s Bennett Spring and Chesapeake fish hatcheries raised the pan-sized trout.

All Missouri residents over age 15 and under 65 must have a valid fishing permit, and all non-residents over age 15 must have a Missouri fishing permit.

Anglers who wish to keep trout must also have a valid Missouri Trout Permit.

For information about winter trout fishing at Krug Park Lagoon and Everyday Pond, call MDC’s St. Joseph office at 816-271-3100.
