If you haven’t gone fishing for years, this might be the weekend for you to take up the sport again. Fishing in Missouri this weekend is free – no licenses or special permits needed at any of the public lakes, streams, rivers, and ponds in the state. Steve Eder with the State Conservation Department hopes this weekend helps to build a better appreciation of the outdoors. Eder says the variety of fish and number of locations available in Missouri should attract large crowds.
