Are there any good fishing holes close to Springfield. I've done the Springfield Lake thing and haven't done very well. I have access to a boat and have been to Bull Shoals and Tablerock but it's just to far without planning. Sometimes I'd like to just go and be fishing within 30 minutes. Any suggestions?

1. Get a large, watertight shoulder bag
2. Go to Bass Pro Shop
3. Go to the fish exhibit
4. Grab those suckers, stick in bag
5. Cheap dinner

I suggest certain parts of Wilson's Creek. I have caught mostly just pan fish but it is something if you just want a day out fishing. Other then that, I really don't know of any other good places.

Pomme de Terre and Stockton lakes are to the north of Springfield. Stockton is closer but very exposed. Do not go there on a windy day (big white caps). Pomme de Terre is a little closer than table rock, just in the opposite direction. Pomme de Terre is a smaller less crowded lake. Also shielded fairly good from the wind. Definitely not a bad place to go. I'm still partial to Table Rock but that's probably because I grew up there.

LO I hope you didn't eat those fish out of lake springfield! My suggestion would be go kayaking down northfork river. Its 25$ and you can catch all kinds of fish, plus, the views are great.p.s. clean water!

James River, small jigs or limb lines (depending on whether you prefer small mouth or catfish). Be sure to check with the land owner as some have attitudes.

Roaring River ... Bennett Springs
Fun to watch these silly men walk out when it's still cold enough to have snow on the ground and stand in spring water. Silly silly men.

Fellows lake can be good with a boat. I like river fishing personally. Pomme de terre and little sac can be awesome for smallmouth, channel cats and carp.

This is 2010. There's no longer any such thing as a 'fishing hole'. You're just crazy. Go to walmart.

I took so many fish from the Fish and Wildlife Museum - they had to close it.( Sorry )

Hint: White wine w / fish - delicious.
