Groundbreaking On Hatchery Improvements At Bennett Spring

Missouri is investing millions of dollars to enhance a popular fishing spot near Lebanon.

Construction is set to commence shortly at the fish hatchery located within Bennett Spring State Park. Following Wednesday’s groundbreaking ceremony, anglers can anticipate notable changes in and around the fish hatchery area.

The project comes with a price tag of $40 million and is expected to generate some noise during the construction phase. However, Ben Havens,  Hatchery Manager at Bennett Spring, assured anglers that they aim not to impact their fishing experience negatively. Although there might be additional noises and increased truck activity in the area, the intention is for visitors to continue enjoying their fishing moments undisturbed.
