    I fish Wappapello a couple times a year. They have a lot of nice camp sites and boat ramps. Most anglers target Crappie and Bass so catfish do not have as much pressure. Try the dam thats always where I go there are a couple spots from the bank are along the dam. Its a really shallow lake like avg depth of 6-8ft. Also use a bobber was fishing off the bottom for a weekend didnt catch much tried a bobber and loaded up.
