MDC Hosting Ice Fishing Clinic at Mozingo Lake


A deep freeze can bring an outdoor opportunity for hardy anglers.

The Missouri Department of Conservation will offer a free ice fishing clinic from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, February 5, at Mozingo Lake near Maryville.

The clinic will cover what equipment and techniques are effective for ice fishing.

Tory Mason, MDC fisheries management biologist, will cover what species of fish to target and what winter habitats beneath the ice the fish prefer.

Mason will also cover ice safety.

MDC can provide all necessary gear.

Staff will also coach anglers.

But participants are also encouraged to bring their fishing tackle.

Registration is required.

If ice conditions warrant a schedule change, MDC will notify participants.

MDC will follow COVID-19 safety precautions.

To register, call MDC’s Northwest Regional Office at 816-271-3100.
