Missouri Department of Conservation Fisheries staff have recently stocked more than 70,000 rainbow trout in more than 30 urban-area lakes around the state for winter trout fishing.

Among these 30 lakes are Suson Park‘s Carp Lake and Island Lake in South County, Tilles Park Lake and Walker Lake in Kirkwood Park.

Limits and tackle restrictions vary by lake and season. The Missouri Department of Conservation urges anglers to check for special area regulations before fishing.

The daily limit for catch-and-keep at these locations is four trout with no length limit.

All Missouri residents over age 15 and under age 65 must have a fishing permit. All non-residents over age 15 must have a fishing permit. To keep trout, anglers of all ages must have a Missouri trout permit.
