Guide To Fishing At Thomas Hill Reservoir
AKA: Thomas Hill Lake
What to fish for...
Fishing for largemouth bass, channel catfish, flathead catfish, black crappie, white crappie and hybrid striped bass at Thomas Hill Reservoir in Missouri.
As a result of the warm-water discharge from the power plant, Thomas Hill Reservoir is a unique, year-round fishery. This 4,500-acre lake in the northeast part of the state, 8 miles north of Clifton Hill, provides anglers with several popular species to pursue.
White crappie thrive in the warm water and are a favorite target of locals. In winter hybrid striped bass become the number one target. Catfish and bass also reside here, and provide some excellent fishing outings for those who favor targeting them. When the weather turns cold, anglers should concentrate around the warm water from the plant. During summer bass and crappie fishermen should concentrate on the submerged brush piles, trees and vegetation scattered around the lake. Also fishing around the many boat docks can be productive. Anglers wishing to fish from the bank can use the jetty at the north end of the lake or a hand full of areas with access to the shoreline around the lake. Launch your fishing boat, pleasure boat, pontoon, canoe, kayak or any other boating vessel at several boat ramps around the lake.
