Kansas City, Mo. (AP) - No need to look over your shoulder for the game warden if you’re fishing without a license this weekend.

Saturday will be a Free Fishing Day in Missouri and Kansas. That means fishermen won’t have to possess a permit, trout stamp or trout-park daily tag.

Normal regulations, such as size and creel limits, will still be in place. And some private fishing areas may require permits.

But at most reservoirs and state fishing lakes, this weekend will offer free fishing.

The annual promotion is part of National Fishing Day, and was designed to give aspiring fishermen a chance to try the sport without having to buy a license.

Time to hit the trail

Saturday is National Trail Day. And what better place to celebrate than Missouri?

The Show-Me State was named last year Best Trails State by American Trails, a national organization that promotes the nation’s hiking, biking and riding trails.

Missouri was recognized for its more than 1,000 managed trails, and boasts more than 500 miles of National Recreation Trails designated by the U.S. Department of Interior.

The Missouri State Park System includes an extensive trail system, including paths designed along Ozarks streams, reservoirs, north-Missouri savannahs and river-hills bluffs.

The Mark Twain National Forest and the Ozark National Scenic Riverways offer trails past some of the state’s most striking natural wonders. And the Department of Conservation also offers hiking opportunities on its many conservation areas.

Don’t forget Kansas

So, you think Kansas would be a boring place to hike?

Think again.

Despite its reputation as a flat, nondescript state, there is some surprisingly beautiful scenery off the beaten path.

Wilson State Park in central Kansas, for example, features trails overlooking the reservoir that provide vistas like something out of the West, with canyons and rocky outcroppings.

Kanopolis State Park, also in the central part of the state, also has the bluffs, rock formations and vistas to provide a great view from the trail.

For those desiring longer hikes, the Flint Hills Nature Trail stretches 117 miles and the Prairie Spirit Trail covers 51 miles.

High-school bassin’

Missouri students will get their summer school on the lake Saturday and Sunday when the Bass Pro Shops Open Championship of High School Fishing is held.

The event at Table Rock Lake will feature 60 teams from 14 Missouri high schools. In the tournament, an adult driver will handle the boat, but students will decided how and where to fish.

Among the teams planning to compete is Park Hill South.
