The Missouri Trout Fishermen’s Association was formed in 1946 by two groups of individuals from Kansas City and St. Louis, who jointly wanted to promote interest in and improve trout fishing in the state managed waters and other streams of Missouri. At the time of inception, the Kansas City group was technically a part of the St. Louis organization as the system of chapters under a State Council had not been devised. A joint Convention was held in April 1947 and officers were elected for a State Council. It was during this Convention that the Kansas City and St. Louis groups were set up as Chapters. Since that original Convention a third Chapter has been added at Springfield. Presently our membership exceeds 300 members nationwide with the majority of members from Missouri and adjoining states. The Kansas City Chapter is the Largest of the three statewide chapters with membership exceeding 100.
