Urban Fishing Program

A young angler enjoys a day of fishing at one of the lakes in the Missouri Department of Conservation 's Urban Fishing Program, assisted by a conservation staff member. 

The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) will host a free public program on St. Louis lake fishing hotspots at Powder Valley Nature Center, 11715 Cragwold Rd. in Kirkwood at 7 p.m. Friday, February 22.

Many St. Louis anglers may not know that there are more than 80 public lakes comprising more than 1,200 acres of water within a one-hour drive of the Gateway Arch. MDC Fisheries Management Biologist Kevin Meneau, who manages the urban fishing program, will discuss these locations, what species to look for and some of the best ways to catch them, and review regulations.

St. Louis lake fishing hotspots is a free program, but advanced online registration is required at https://bit.ly/2WZdYVu.
