Trout Opening 2014

at Missouri State Parks

For more than 6,000 winter-weary fishermen, the March 1 opening of trout fishing season in Missouri’s three state trout parks is the first sign that spring is coming soon. Fishing season for rainbow trout officially begins every year at 6:30 a.m. March 1 at Bennett Spring State Park, Roaring River State Park and Montauk State Park. For many fishermen, it is the unofficial start of spring and the beginning of a summer-long passion that runs until the season’s end on Oct. 31.
