COLUMBIA, Mo. — Pack up your tackle and head over to Little Dixie Lake Conservation Area. Row boats are now available to rent for use in the 205-acre Little Dixie Lake. Boats cost $5 for the day and payments are made via an honor system at the boat ramp. Only boats and oars are provided; all other boating equipment must be supplied by the user. Rental row boats are available until Oct. 15.

"Whether you want to enjoy a lazy day on the lake or you want to wet a line, it's an opportunity to help people discover nature and enjoy their local Conservation Area," said MDC Wildlife Biologist Tim James. "Fish found in Little Dixie Lake include bass, crappie, catfish and sunfish."

The lake is part of Little Dixie Lake CA, a 733-acre area that offers hunting, fishing, hiking, birding, and other outdoor opportunities. Little Dixie Lake CA is located in Callaway County. The main parking area is off Route RA near the junction with Route J in Millersburg.
