General: The lake of the Ozarks was created with the construction of Bagnell Damn at the Osage River in central Missouri in 1931.  The reservoir impoundment includes three smaller tributaries to the Osage, the Niangua River, Grandglaize creek and Gravois Creek.  The lake area is an astounding 55,000 acres and stretches over 1150 miles of shoreline.  Since the lake was built it has become a top vacation spot in the midwest for both boating enthusiast and fisherman.  Lake of the Ozarks is a stop for BASS tournaments and FLW fishing tournaments, not to mention the dozens and dozens of smaller local fishing competitions.   Lake of the Ozarks at the time of construction was the largest man made lake in the united states.

Fishing: Many freshwater sport fishing species are actively pursued in Lake of the Ozarks.  With over 70,000 lake homes along the 1150 miles of shoreline, many of which have a boat dock and man, it's an excellent lake for bass fishing

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
This is the water temperature of choice for walleye. They are feeding well and moving in patterns that should be fairly easy to pick up and capitalize on today. Baitfish are not at the peak of activity but they will be in good supply in the deeper water. The lake is really turning on this time of year and the fish should be biting well.

Lake of the Ozarks Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The affects of the moon on freshwater fish and game are at a minimum right now. There will be another full moon coming up here in a few days. The fisherman should never use this as an excuse to not get on the water. The affects of the moon can only enhance the outcome of a day's fishing not decrease potential catch for today. On days without the new or full moon, all other factors including weather, barometric pressure, wind and cloud cover will make up today's equation for success.
