Press Release from the Missouri Department of Conservation

The many ponds large and small scattered across the rural landscape help make Missouri a great place to fish. Ponds are often easily accessible for fishing from shore and produce exciting catches. But good designs and proper management help keep ponds “fishy.”

A pond management workshop will be offered 5:30 to 8 p.m. on April 12 at the Trails Regional Library in Warrensburg, 432 N. Holden St. The workshop is free and hosted by the Missouri Department of Conservation.

Topics covered will include fish stocking, fish population management, vegetation control and solutions for pond problems. The workshop is designed for anyone planning to build a new pond or those needing advice regarding an existing pond.
