Statewide Weekly Fishing report

Attention Fishing Report Subscribers:

In most streams south of the Missouri River, black bass may not be possessed from March 1-May 24.  During those dates all black bass in those streams must be returned to the water unharmed immediately after being caught. For details see Chapter 6 of the Wildlife Code.

PLEASE CHECK REGULATIONS CAREFULLY: Special regulations may apply to designated portions of water bodies; some baits and lures may not be legal for all portions.
