If you aren’t quite “hooked” on fishing, the Missouri Department of Conservation is hoping you’ll take advantage of free fishing days this weekend.

Camden County Conservation Agent Payton Emery says, Saturday and Sunday, anyone can hit the waters statewide to drop their lines without having to, first, purchase the normal fishing permit, trout tag or other daily tags.

Emery also says, however, that other regulations such as minimum sizes and daily limits do still apply.

On June 11th and 12th,2022, the Saturday and Sunday following the first Monday in June, any person may fish state waters without an MDC fishing permit, trout permit, and prescribed area daily tag. Normal regulations, such as size and daily limits, still apply. This would be a great opportunity to try a new hobby without the cost of a permit.
