Did you know people like to winter fish?
No, not ice fish. Winter fish.
But apparently they do. And apparently it’s a pretty big deal!
I wrote a story last week about Missouri’s Winter Trout Fishing Program. The program, which is in its eighth year, promotes fishing opportunities and species diversity in urban lakes and is funded by the Missouri Department of Conservation and Missouri Parks and Recreation.
The little fishies released into the various Missouri bodies of water are all Rainbow Trout ( <– that’s what a Rainbow Trout looks like. In case you were wondering) of a relatively small size. They swim free from harm now until Jan. 31, but are fair game for harvest beginning Feb. 1.
