Many anglers like to share techniques for catching fish, but when asked where their favorite fishing spots are, the details become much more vague.
However, staff at the Missouri Department of Conservation are always eager to provide information on rod and reel hot spots in Missouri.
People can learn about good fishing spots in the southwestern part of the state at the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) ‘s virtual program “Top 10 Series: Southwest Missouri Fishing Spots”.
The free online program, which runs from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on June 2, is part of a series of year-long “Top 10” programs put together by MDC’s Shoal Creek Conservation staff at Joplin.
On this program, MDC’s administrative assistant, Tim Smith, will discuss some of the major fishing sites in Southwest Missouri, the species that can be caught there, and the fishing techniques that work best. This program is open to all ages.
People can register for this program at: https://mdc-event-web.s3licensing.com/Event/EventDetails/177210
Although this program is free, registration is required to participate. Registrants must provide an email so that a link to the program can be sent to them. This program will include a chat-based question and answer period where participants can interact with the presenters.
Staff at MDC facilities across the state run virtual programs. A list of these programs is available at mdc.mo.gov/events.
