Overnight fishing offered again at Shawnee Mission Park
The third of four overnight fishing opportunities at Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road, is planned July 23.
After 11 p.m. on the day of the event, the park will be open strictly for fishing only and park police officers will be on duty throughout the night. Fishing will be allowed from the bank or from watercraft.
No additional fees are charged for participating in overnight events, but before fishing in district waters, Kansas residents ages 16 to 74 and nonresidents 16 and older need to have a Kansas state fishing license, and all appropriate boat tags, if applicable.
Additionally, Johnson County residents ages 16 to 64 and non-county residents age 16 and older must have a JCPRD fishing permit. Permits are available at the JCPRD Registration Office, Building D, 6501 Antioch Road, Merriam; the John Barkley Visitor Center at Shawnee Mission Park, 7900 Renner Road; and at numerous local retail outlets.
The final overnight fishing opportunities for 2016 at Shawnee Mission Park is Aug. 27. For more information about the overnight fishing program, call Shawnee Mission Park's John Barkley Visitor Center at (913) 888-4713.
