Celebrate opening of new accessible fishing dock at Cuivre River State Park Oct. 29

Jefferson City, Mo. - The public is invited to celebrate the opening of a new accessible fishing dock at Cuivre River State Park on Wednesday, Oct. 29. Sponsored by Missouri State Parks, participants will have the opportunity to try their luck fishing in the 55-acre Lake Lincoln using the new, recently completed fishing dock. The project was made possible thanks to a generous donation by Toyota Bodine located in Troy, Mo.

At 2 p.m., visitors can attend a dedication ceremony that will be held at the park boat ramp, near the new fishing dock. At 2:30 p.m., visitors are encouraged to try their luck at fishing using the new dock. Park staff will be on hand to provide assistance. If you plan to fish, please make sure that you have a current fishing permit and your own equipment. This program is free of charge and open to the public.

Cuivre River State Park is located on Highway 147, just 3 miles east of the Troy/Highway 61 exit. For information about the event, call the park at 636 528 7247.
