Farm Ponds

Missouri's numberless farm ponds are bulging with fish. You can plug for bass, bug for bluegill or throw out a worm for almost any species, including crappie and catfish. Landowners who want to squeeze more fishing fun from ponds on their property should consult the "Missouri Pond Handbook," available free from the Conservation Department Distribution Center, P.O. Box 180, Jefferson City, MO 65102-0180.
