Missouri is, in many ways, an angler’s dream location. Sandwiched between a handful of other quality fishing states — Nebraska, Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Oklahoma, Kansas, and Nebraska — the Show-Me State also plays home to some excellent lakes of its own.

Some of the top fishing lakes in Missouri include: Lake Taneycomo, Bull Shoals Lake, Stockton Lake, Truman Reservoir, Table Rock Lake, Lake of the Ozarks, Lake Jacomo, Smithville Lake, Mark Twain Lake, Lake Wappapello, Pomme de Terre Lake, Fellows Lake, Norfolk Lake, Mozingo Lake, Blue Springs Lake, Waconda Lake and Tuttle Creek Lake.

On Lake Taneycomo, for instance, Bill Babler, who has served as a fishing guide for over twenty years, caught the Missouri state record brown trout in 2019 on Lake Taneycomo. Babler’s catch was fewer than two pounds shy of the brown trout world record.

On Missouri’s Truman Lake, angler Mark Wilson landed a 3.68 lb crappie that had the internet buzzing for much of December 2019.

If nothing else, it goes without saying that there are no shortage of great fishing spots in Missouri. But for anglers looking to get competitive with their angling, where can you find fishing tournament in Missouri?

Below, you will find a list of fishing tournaments in Missouri. Some of the lakes, creeks, and reservoirs hosting tournaments include Mill Creek, Table Rock Lake, Lake of the Ozarks, Stockton Lake, Truman Lake, and others.
