Area Hunting & Fishing Info

truman lake fishing boat

Fishing for crappie, catfish, hybrid bass, white bass, walleye, and spoonbill are all popular here, as is hunting for deer, turkey, and a few other critters, when they’re in season. (And yes, our campground is open for hunters in the winter months – but in the wintertime, please let us know a few days before your arrival date so we can be sure to be here for you.)

Truman Lake FishingThe Conservation Department has placed fish habitat (basically, cedar trees cut from the woods and sunk in the water) in various places in the lake to improve fishing, some of which is very near our Fairfield boat ramp.  A map of locations where these exist is here:  Truman Lake Fish Attractors

Weekly fishing reports, published most Thursdays, are available here:  Fishing Reports

Truman Lake fishing GuideWe conveniently 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.  Whether you’re unfamiliar with fishing this lake, or an altogether fishing novice, or you’re an expert just wanting to try something different, or you are a group of people just looking for something fun to do, Gary can show you to a good time.  He’ll provide the boat and all equipment, so all you’ll need are fishing licenses, which are available here at the campground store.  If you have questions or to make a reservation, you can give Gary a call at 816-520-5358.

An article recently written about Gary’s fishing guide service by one of his customers is available here:  Gary’s Fishing Guide Service
