The Missouri Department of Conservation invites veterans to fish for free Saturday at Montauk State Park’s Veterans’ Fishing Day event from 7:30 a.m. to 7:15 p.m. in Licking.
There will be no permit or daily tag fee required for veterans. Veterans can pick up their free daily trout tag at the tent in front of the Dorman L. Steelman Lodge on Friday evening or any time Saturday during the event.
Throughout the day, veterans will be able to fish anywhere in the park. Adjacent to the fishing area, volunteers will offer a hospitality tent, featuring fly-tying demos, lessons, casting instruction and the latest adaptive fishing equipment.
This event is being jointly held by MDC and Montauk State Park. For more information about the event, call the Montauk Hatchery at 573.548.2585 or email Tom Whelan at Tom.Whelan@mdc.mo.gov.
