Contract approval moves Bennett Spring Hatchery renovation into construction phase

On Friday, May 19, the Missouri Conservation Commission showed it is committed to the future of trout fishing in the Show-Me State.

By unanimous vote, the Commission approved Cahills Construction Inc., of Rolla, to be the contractor for a multi-year renovation of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s (MDC) Bennett Spring Hatchery. 

The hatchery supplies the trout for one of the state’s highly popular fishing destinations – trout fishing at Bennett Spring State Park.

“Outdoor recreation has a huge economic impact for the state of Missouri and Bennett Spring Hatchery has played a critical role in raising fish for anglers for more than 100 years,” said MDC Director Sara Parker Pauley.
