Anglers will soon find it simpler to catch a fish at a popular Sikeston fishing spot. City officials say now the lake will be better stocked and well maintained with help from the Missouri Department of Conservation and with officials managing the lake they are able to go out and do surveys of the fish population, determine what’s in the lake and be able to make management recommendations off of it. Officials say the City of Sikeston will be one of four in the region to have its lake stocked with trout during winter of 2023. Bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish will be regularly stocked throughout the calendar year. Officials say the Missouri Department of Conservation is stocking bluegill and catfish in the fall.
