Considering that fishing is a major activity at Lake of the Ozarks, the Missouri Department of Conservation is hoping you’ll drop a line this weekend and become “hooked.”
Camden County Agent Payton Emery says this weekend is free fishing days across the state with no permits needed.
Emery also says, however, normal regulations such as minimum sizes and daily limits do still apply.
Free fishing days is an annual event in Missouri scheduled for the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June.
