Smithville Lake: More than 4,000 of the lakes 7,190 water surface acres were left uncleared to provide the aquatic habitat that should provide excellent fishing for many years. Hundreds of irregularly shaped coves will furnish over 175 miles of shoreline fishing. The Missouri Department of Conservation fisheries biologists began building the fish populations in 1975 by stocking the 160-acre Trimble Lake, and numerous farm ponds which were inundated by lake waters. Since the permanent pool was established in October 1979, the biologists have continued to stock game species including largemouth bass, channel catfish, blue catfish, flathead catfish, bluegill, tiger muskie, and walleye. Crappie were already present in sufficient numbers so as not to require stocking. [Smithville Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 02/04/2008]

Smithville Lake Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
