Thousands of fisherfolk hope to catch their first trout of the year within seconds tomorrow morning when trout season starts at three state trout parks and at a private park. The conservation department estimates about 8,400 people will wet lines before the day is done.
Governor Nixon will be among those at Bennett Spring. The other state trout parks are Roaring River and Montauk. The private park is Meramec Spring, where the conservation department maintains a trout hatchery.
