Fishing for largemouth bass, smallmouth bass, channel catfish, white crappie, bluegill and white bass at McDaniel Lake in Missouri.
McDaniel Lake, MO

If you want to fish from the bank in the Springfield area, McDaniel Lake is a nice option. This little-known reservoir is primarily storage for drinking water. The only fishing allowed is from the bank, upstream from Grant Street Bridge. This 300-acre lake is not open to boating of any kind. Catfish are the most sought after species here, but the lake also has nice populations of bass, crappie and sunfish - all available for those willing to hike a bit.
