Urban Winter Trout Fishermen, We Need Your Help!

Well folks, urban winter trout lake fishing is finally back. St. Louis still has the crown for the most lakes with 16. Kansas City is back up to 4 lakes, after losing Bowlin Rd. Lake, but adding Plover Lake. We also have a trout lake in Jackson, one in Jefferson City, one in Columbia, one in Mexico, and (allegedly) one in Sedalia. The trout lake in Sedalia doesn't have much information out there, so we're somewhat worried that it may just be a rumor. The Mexico program is starting its second year, and it is finally listed in the Missouri Department of Conservation fishing regulation book.

Now, don't get me wrong. I am so unbelievably impressed with our Conservation Department. We have amazing trout fishing opportunities, a fantastic deer herd, and 650,000 wild turkeys living in our state. They've done a fantastic job and continue to do so. HOWEVER, I still need your help. The information provided by the MDC on our winter trout lakes is pretty darn slim. Some might even say its anorexic. So, our urban winter trout fishermen must band together to get the word out!

Sedalia and Mexico trout lake fishermen, we need to know where your lakes are, when they are stocked, fishing regulations, etc. Sedalia fishermen, we don't even know the name of your lake (hangs his head in shame). But even beyond this, we need to hear from all urban winter trout fishermen regarding anything you can think of that will help your fellow fishermen find the lake, fish the lake, and enjoy the lake. If you have a map, put it in the mail to us (Missouri Trout Hunter, 10571 County Rd. 2020, Rolla, MO 65401). If you have photos, send them in. Of course, the most important thing you can do is submit fishing reports.

We've consistently had good participation from our St. Louis visitors. So here's my challenge to the rest of Missouri. Come on, guys! You gonna let those Cardinals fans show you up? Get involved!

Many thanks, in advance.

Walt

Walt, Andy Webb here, I have directions for you to Plover Lake in KC to add to the KCUWTA page on the site. Let me know if you would like me to email them to you, or to get a map for you and send it to you. Thanks buddy for the awesome site.
