What You Need to Know About Fishing Lake Wappapello

Lake Wappapello is a nearly 8,500 surface acre reservoir formed by the damming of the St Francis River by the Wappapello Dam in the 1930s. Located a few hours drive of St Louis, this lake is a common destination for fishing looking to catch largemouth bass, white bass, channel catfish, crappie, and bluegill. The lake can be accessed by anglers by launching from the numerous public launches or fishing from shore at the Spillway Recreation Area or the Lake Wappapello State Park. Fishing tournaments are held on the lake throughout the fishing seasons by clubs including the Wappapella Bass Circuit.
