MDC’s weekly fishing report has been discontinued. The MDC weekly fishing report was originally created when there were few other options for anglers, and making the decision to end it was difficult. Nowadays, a quick internet search will yield many online fishing reports, fishing apps, social media fishing forums and chats 24 hours a day.
MDC still offers the annual fishing prospects which gives great fish population information found nowhere else. You can find the fishing prospects at fishing.mdc.mo.gov.
We also continue to offer the free MO Fishing App which gives information on fishing locations, fish attractors, regulations, and fishing prospects. If you don’t have it already, you can find more information on this at short.mdc.mo.gov/Zoh.
