Women’s free fishing day offered in Missouri
Women of all ages will have a chance to trout fish for free 7:30 a.m. – 7:15 p.m. Sept. 13 at Maramec Spring Park. There is no fishing license or daily trout tag required for women during this free event. There will be prize fish stocked into the fishing area. Not only is the event free, but there will also be fishing instruction offered. A special area of the spring branch will be roped off for use by women anglers only. Informal instruction will be offered including casting, basic trout fishing tactics and cleaning and cooking your catch.

Men are welcome to fish the rest of the park below the women’s fishing area, with the purchase of a daily tag. Bring the whole family to enjoy the day.
This event is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Maramec Spring Park is located on state Route 8 about six miles east of St. James. For more information, call (573) 265-7801.
