The Warsaw area offers a variety of excellent fishing opportunities. Targeted fish include: crappie, catfish, bass, walleye and paddlefish.
Crappie fishing is best during the spring spawning season, usually late April through early May. Spawning begins when the nest temperature is around 55 and usually peaks when nest temperature is 65. The Missouri Dept. of Conservation places large cedar brushpiles each year in Truman Lake. Specific fish attractor GPS locations are available on their website: www.mdc.mo.gov/fishing.
Fishing for blue catfish, channel catfish and flathead catfish is very good on the Osage, Grand and Tebo arms of Truman Lake. The average size of blue catfish is about 4 pounds.
Walleye fishing on Truman Lake continues to improve. the South Grand, Sac, Osage and Pomme de Terre arms have great walleye fishing.
Truman Lake is also known for great bass fishing and there are many tournaments held on the lake each year.
The upper arm of the Osage River, often called the quiet end of Lake of the Ozarks, is where Missouri's state aquatic animal, the paddlefish can be found. Paddlefish are sometimes referred to as "Spoonbill", "Spoonies" or "Spoonbill catfish. Snagging season runs from March 15 through April 30th and many of the fish taken are greater than 45 pounds.
