The Lake of the Ozarks is one of Missouri's premier fishing destinations, and can be accessed via one of the park's two paved boat ramps located at both public beaches. Anglers can expect to catch a variety of fish including bass, crappie, walleye, bluegill and catfish. In addition to statewide fishing rules, the Lake of the Ozarks has the following regulations:

Lakewide
black bass -- 15 inch minimum length limit on largemouth and smallmouth bass; 12 inch minimum length limit on spotted bass
crappie -- 9 inch minimum length limit; 15 fish daily limit
non-game fish -- snagging, snaring and grabbing are allowed from March 15 through April 30 only


On the lake and its tributaries
paddlefish -- 34 inch minimum body length
  • No person shall continue to snag, snare or grab for any species after taking a daily limit of two paddlefish.
Within 525 feet on the left descending bank and 977 feet on the right descending bank below Truman Dam in the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' restricted zone
  • No fishing is allowed.
