There has been some upgrades to the Springfork lake in Pettis County Missouri.

The Missouri Department of Conservation has taken over the management of the Springfork lake southeast of Sedalia near Bahner Mo. With that have come several upgrades to the parking area, boat ramp and dock.

The old gravel boat ramp has been replaced with a nice concrete boat ramp which will make the launching process allot easier.

The drive and parking lot has been redone with the addition of a new restroom. Last but not least there has been a nice new covered dock complete with crappie beds installed.

Anglers are encouraged to harvest their limit of crappie, up to 30 a day, no matter the size. The crappie population is stunted, meaning they are growing slower. Less crappie will provide more food for the rest of the fish to grow bigger.

Electric motors are the only type allowed to operate on the lake. You can launch your boat with a gas engine on it but it must be kept up out of the water while powering your boat with the trolling motor.SpringFork Lake Pettis County Mo, Kids Fishing

My son and I fished this lake when he was growing up and caught many crappie from it. Most of all we had quality time together and he learned to appreciate our fishing and recreation lakes and more about wildlife.

With all of the upgrades and a renewed excitement about the lake I encourage everyone to take a kid fishing and support the recovery of Springfork Lake in Pettis County Mo. I will definitely do my part!

Craig - That sounds like a great place to fish. I don't catch them, but I sure like to eat them...especially Crappie!  :)

Is there a place to fish if you don't have a boat? A dock that goes out?
