Gigs & Ghosts
Time & Location
About the Event
Gigging season on Ozark streams and rivers runs from Sept. 15 through Jan. 31.
Gigging consists of spearing fish rather than catching them with a hook and line. It is primarily a nighttime activity and is most effective in shallow, clear water. MDC will instruct youths, ages 8 to 15, on fish identification and gigging techniques and regulations.
NPS will host a storytelling session around a campfire on the gravel bar.
Participants should note this program is at Round Springs Lower Landing... not the Twin Pines conservation center. Limit 20. Reservations are required.
