Regulation and Permit Information

We offer a variety of choices from our full service marina including boats, pontoons, and slip rentals, to a 305' dock for your fishing enjoyment. Some of the best trout fishing in Missouri is right off our dock.

Marina & Fishing Regulations



Full Service Marina

  • On the upper third of the 22-mile long lake, from the Hwy 65 bridge up to Table Rock Dam, a trout stamp is required for ALL fishermen in addition to a fishing license that is required for almost anyone fishing.
  • The specific regulations and permit required is more fully explained in the Fishing Regulation books provided by the Missouri Department of Conservation. Pick up a Free Booklet in our store.
  • Ages 0-15 only need a trout stamp if you are old enough to hold a fishing pole, you need a trout stamp.
  • Ages 16 and older will need a fishing license and a trout stamp.
  • NO Fishing is permitted within 760 feet below Table Rock Dam if you want to wade fish, the area just below the 760 foot line provides world class wade fishing opportunities.
  • Limit of 4 trout one of which can be a brown if it is at least 20" or longer. You can have 8 in possession, NOT DAILY it is 8 in possession for each trout stamp.
  • The Trophy area is up lake by Fall Creek with a sign reflecting the area is restricted, hard baits, flies are permitted and slot limits are enforced. NO live or soft baits can be used.
  • Trout Hollow Lodge is located about 3/4 mile below the trophy area where all legal baits are permitted.
  • Brown Trout are rare so if a Brown trout is caught, handle gently, keep the fish in the water as much as possible. Take the fish out of the water to measure the length and girth. Weigh then take pictures. Quickly but gently put the fish back in the water to release carefully. All Browns must be at least 20 inches to keep but it is recommended they be released unharmed. Most Taxidermist do not use the fish to create the mounted "trophy", they use the pictures, weight and measurements you provide.
  • Rainbow Trout are plentiful but they too need to be handled with care. In the Trophy area, Rainbow trout from 12” to 20” must be released in this trophy area from Fall Creek up to Table Rock dam. Outside the trophy area, Rainbow trout can be kept at any size. It is still best to release any trout 20 inches or longer.
  • The fish swallowed the hook what do I do now? The best action is to cut the line and put the fish back in the lake. The hook will move out of the fish in about 30 days.
