Fishing with a Halloween angle will be held in St. Joseph later this month.
The Missouri Department of Conservation will host a free Fish-or-Treat event on Saturday, Oct. 28 from 9 a.m. to noon at Everyday Pond on the Missouri Western State University campus in St. Joseph. MDC said, visitors are welcome to come in costume (or not) for fishing, games, and prizes.
MDC said staff members will be on hand to assist with fishing skills such as casting with a rod and reel or handling fish that are caught. Loaner fishing gear will also be available.
“Participants can make a test run in Halloween costumes, do some fishing, and perhaps land a treat,” the MDC said in a news release.
Everyday pond is on James McCarthy Drive, a quarter mile south of Faraon Street. For more information about Fish-or-Treat, call 816-271-3100.
