Local Anglers Reminded to Keep Permits Updated and Equipment Ready

As spring approaches in Missouri, many local fishermen prepare to hit the water to take advantage of early fishing opportunities. Macon County Conservation Agent Jared Kelly provides a reminder to area anglers.

Kelly adds there are several ways to purchase or update permits.

Anglers are also reminded to do an equipment check before getting in the boat.

Kelly encourages fishermen to wear a life jacket while in their boat and even while they’re fishing from shore.
