Additional Information: Instructed by:
MDC staff and volunteers will instruct participants on the basics of setline fishing on Missouri’s rivers and lakes. Participants will attend a seminar on fisheries management, with information on the recent catfish survey led by an MDC Fisheries Management biologist. The program will then become a hands-on tutorial of how to safely set trot-lines and bank poles, properly label equipment, and boat operation. These tactics can be used in streams and some lakes of Missouri. Saturday morning participants will be given the opportunity to go back out on the river to check lines. Once off the river a fish cleaning demonstration will be held. Following the river outing, a Conservation Agent will present fishing regulations, and staff will give a how-to presentation on using gear and equipment. Sign up is limited to anglers that are new to setline fishing (You will be contacted about your experience to ensure new anglers are given priority). Fishing equipment will be provided. All participants should bring face masks. Please have each person in your party sign up separate. For Questions contact Rob at (660)785-2420 or Robert L Garver
