Didymo - Rock Snot

dodymo Didymo, or rock snot, is a single-celled alga that can take over a stream making it impossible to fish. Help keep rock snot out of Missouri. Use wader wash stations at trout areas before entering a stream. Check your waders and fishing gear for algae. Clean all gear in a 2 percent bleach solution or with dishwashing detergent, or dry any item that's been in the water by exposing it to sunlight for 48 hours.

Note:To minimize the spread of didymo, pouous-soled waders and boots are prohibited in trout parks and other cold water trout streams.

Report Stream Pollution

If you find dead fish, leaking barrels of unknown chemicals, municipal or livestock lagoons discharging poorly treated effluent, broken pipelines, or unauthorized dredging or bulldozing polluting a stream, report it as soon as possible to the Department of Natural Resource's 24-hour environmental emergency response number 573.634.2436.
