MDC waives trout tags, fishing fees

Posted
Sport fishing and daily trout tag permit requirements are being waived at Bennett Spring State Park. The Missouri Department of Conservation is temporarily waiving the requirements for Missouri residents and nonresidents whose fishing privileges are not otherwise suspended. The waiver of needing a permit or trout tag to fish will run from Friday, March 27, through April 15. MDC will reassess the situation at that point. All season dates, methods, and limits will continue to apply and be enforced.  “The current public-health emergency caused by the coronavirus (COVID-19) has many Missourians and others looking for safe ways to get outside in nature,” said MDC Director Sara Parker Pauley.
