CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

The Missouri Department of Conservation's (MDC) Cape Girardeau Conservation Nature Center is inviting women to learn how to fish for trout Saturday, Feb. 20, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Registration for the event is required and can be made beginning on Feb. 2.

The event is designed for women ages 12 and older. Anyone 16 and under should be accompanied by an adult.

Participants must have a valid Missouri fishing permit, and anyone who wishes to keep their catch must also have a trout permit. Both permits may be purchased at the Nature Center or any place hunting and fishing permits are sold.

Michelle Randecker, a naturalist at the center, said all necessary equipment will be provided at the event, although attendees may bring their own trout poles.

Participants are encouraged to dress in layers and be prepared for cold weather.

Randecker said knowing how to fish for trout opens up an opportunity to spend time outdoors during winter, when other activities might not be possible.

MDC stocks 24 winter trout areas in cities across the state.

Anglers may harvest rainbow trout at Missouri's stocked trout areas beginning Feb. 1.

To register for this event you can call (573)-290-5730.

For more information on this program, you can visit the Missouri Department of Conservation's website.
