The Maramec Spring Trout Fishermen's Association is a small but dedicated group of trout fishermen. The Association meets on a regular basis and sponsors several activities within Maramec Spring Park. Members enjoy fellowship with fellow trout anglers and a chance to participate and help with events. Our Big event is Kids' Fishing Day which is sponsored by the Missouri Department of Conservation. The Association works closely with the Department for Kids' Day. In addition to providing prizes and contests, members share their knowledge of fishing with kids, some who have never caught a fish before. Helping a kid land his first trout is an experience members never forget. In the fall, we co-sponsor the Fall Derby with the James Foundation. The big fish are up in the park and lunkers abound. Prizes, free food, and contests take place throughout the day and all proceeds benefit Kids' Fishing Day.
To Introduce and Educate Kids and their Parents to the Great Sport of Trout Fishing in Missouri. We hope to instill ethics as well a love for fishing the cold clear trout streams. Kids are taught not only the skills to successfully fish, but also to become good future stewards of our aquatic resources. The Trout Anglers of Tomorrow Are Today's Kids. Take a Kid Fishing Today!
