Hooked: Opening day of trout season a long tradition

LEBANON – Rick Langdon and Ken Henry shared a bit of fisherman’s remorse with Gov. Jay Nixon on the opening day of trout season at Bennett Spring State Park.

“Been coming here since I was 14, and didn’t catch a fish for the first time ever,” said Langdon, who is 46 and from Conway, Mo. Henry also lamented being shut out.

“It’s been slow,” agreed the governor. “They’re out there, though.”
