Blue Ribbon Trout Slam

Blue ribbon trout slam badges and pins
Body

Missouri’s Blue Ribbon Trout Areas provide excellent trout habitat that supports naturally reproducing trout. These trout are wary of predators and provide anglers with a challenging and authentic experience.

MDC and Trout Unlimited invite you to go out and test your skills against these trout in the riffles and pools of Missouri’s nine Blue Ribbon trout streams.

The Missouri Blue Ribbon Trout Slam honors anglers who can catch a trout in at least 5 of these 9 streams. Catch a trout in more than 5 Blue Ribbon streams and your level of achievement goes up. Participants who choose to, can have their successes listed on the MDC website.

Avoid trespassing

Do you have a legal right to use Missouri’s streams. The answer is yes … in some places and in some ways.

Find out more about trespassing while fishing.

Here's How the Trout Slam Works:

Missouri’s Blue Ribbon Trout Slam has been divided into three levels of accomplishment.

Body

Bronze

  • Catch a trout from 5 of the 9 Blue Ribbon Trout Areas.
  • Award – certificate and bronze pin.
Body

Silver

  • Catch a trout from 7 of the 9 Blue Ribbon Trout Areas.
  • Award – certificate and silver pin.
Body

Gold

  • Catch a trout from all 9 Blue Ribbon Trout Areas.
  • Award – certificate, gold pin, and medallion.
Body

Trout of any size caught after January 1, 2020 will qualify for a Blue Ribbon Trout Slam, but trout under 18 inches must be released.

Safeguard landowner goodwill. Never trespass, and always ask permission before floating or wading through private property. Only enter streams at public accesses or with landowner permission.
