Lake Wappapello In Missouri
Boating, camping and fishing.
A favorite in the southeast part of the state, Lake Wappapello is an 8,400-acre boating lake offering room for water skiing, fishing, sightseeing or simply going for a boat ride. There are boats available for rent - anything from a kayak to a pontoon boat. With over 175 miles of shoreline, there are plenty of places to drop a line and a great place to bring the entire family. Crappie and sunfish are a big attraction here, but bass and catfish fishing are also popular here for both quantity and quality. In addition to fishing, the area is ideal for boating, water skiing, sailing, camping and hiking. Numerous places around the lake are accessible for anglers seeking to fish from the bank. Fishing boats, including canoes, kayaks, bass boats and others, do give anglers an advantage. Lots of submerged brush and vegetation is scattered around the lake and becomes good targets when the fish are shallow. Creek channels, ledges, humps and points are good areas to locate when the fish move off the bank.
