Truman Lake Resort

The 56,000-acre Truman Lake has great fishing.  Crappie, catfish, hybrid bass, white bass, and hybrid bass are all common catches here, as is Spoonbill, in-season.

Truman Lake Fishing

The Missouri Conservation Department has placed fish habitat (sunken cedar trees) at various places around the lake to improve fishing.  Some of these are near our Fairfield boat ramp, and you can find their locations by searching for the Fish Attractor Maps available on the Missouri Department of Conservation website.

Truman Lake Hunting



The 105,000 acres of undeveloped Army Corps of Engineers land surrounding the lake is also open to hunting.  Maps are available on the Army Corps of Engineers Kansas City District website, or printed maps are available at the Truman Lake Corps of Engineers visitor’s center.


Truman Lake fishing GuideWe happen to have a fishing guide, Gary Price, specializing in trophy hybrid bass, white bass, and walleye fishing, located here at our campground.  He would be happy to take you and your friends or family (up to four people) out for a day or half-day of fishing and show you to a good time.  He’ll provide the boat and all equipment, so all you’ll need are fishing licenses.  If you have questions or to make a reservation, you can give Gary a call at 816-520-5358.

An article written about Gary’s fishing guide service by one of his customers is available here.
