Neosho installs fishing line recycling bins


There are now designated containers to throw away your old fishing line when fishing Hickory Creek in Neosho.

The monofilament recycling bins are located in four places along Hickory Creek: McKinney Street fishing access point; Spring Street fishing access point (near helicopter); Coler Street fishing access point (at bridge); and north College Street fishing access point (at handicap access).

The cane-shaped plastic bins were provided free of charge by the Missouri Department of Conservation, upon private request by Neosho City Inspector John Harrington. John, who volunteers with the Hickory Creek Stream Team, acted on his own, as a citizen, in requesting the bins, and he installed them himself.

Discarded fishing line can harm wildlife, and takes away from the natural beauty of Hickory Creek. Please utilize the new bins. Also, help keep Hickory Creek clean by picking up any trash you see along the banks.

Hickory Creek is a designated White Ribbon Trout Stream, and is home to both brown and rainbow trout, as well as smallmouth bass.

For more information, please call John Harrington at 417-451-8050.
