Default Striper fishing in Missouri?

I see that Missouri is listed for this forum. I grew up in Missouri and my folks still live there. Does anyone know which lakes in MO might offer some striper fishing? After catching his first striper here in MA with me last weekend, my dad is wondering if there are any spots closer to home where he might find some.

Hi Jake. The mighty mississippi has hybrids and stripers. Missouri Dnr link
According to Missouri Dnr parts of the Missouri and Mississsippi rivers near St. Louis have both hybrids and pure breds and near Kansas City in Blue springs and Harmony Mission Lakes.
Also in Norfork Lake near the Ozark Mountains.
Perry County Lake in the southeast had 2,300 hybrid striped bass fingerlings stocked in 2004.
Check out this Link for Dnr info. Fishing prospects for Missouri
Perhaps some Missourian will spot your post and give you some first hand knowledge but I wouldnt expect much from them misguided Royal fans or even worse yet Cardinal fans. Or was that a Ram?
(**edit) Thomas Hill and Truman as well.

Cool thanks Jim!!
I used to live about 10 miles from Blue Springs Lake and fished there a lot. Never saw any stripers taken from there. Tough lake to really fish because of all the skiers and pleasure boaters, from early until late into the evening. I'll pass the info along to my dad. I think we're going to be fishing Truman Lake together around Labor Day if things go according to plan.

Jake I have lived in Missouri and striper fished Missouri for nearly fifteen years and the Best striper fishing will be in the southern part of the state in the lakes that are shared with arkansas They have been stocking stripers for a long time where missouri has just recently started. Lake of the Ozarks, Truman and Thomas hill reservoir all have good populations of wipers but for true stripers with good populations and great potential for hogs try Norfork, Bullshoals, and Beaver. Spring runs after very heavy rains bring large stripers in large quantities to the upper reaches of those lakes into Missouri. Fall runs like we are starting to have now are peaked by high water created mother natures rain (Norfork) or by consistent generation from dam (Bullshoals). Both are slow now but have potential to be fantastic; if we get rain or once it gets cool enough for people to use their heaters(increased generation). Tell your dad to keep an eye out for heavy spring rains towards mid to late feb and if we get them head to tecumseh, udhall, or redbank on norfork or from swan creek to the dam on bullshoals do not forget the walleye rod. He can contact me at ozarkstripers.com if he has any questions or if he needs any instructing on how we do it. I dont know it all but what i do know im happy to share. Jeff

Thanks for the info! My dad is now in the advanced stages of Parkinson's Disease and can't fish anymore, but hopefully someone else can use it
