thomas Hill lake fishing Missouri

Thomas Hill Reservoir located southwest of Macon, MO and features great crappie and hybrid bass fishing.  The property is owned by Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. and was constructed to provide a source of water to cool the power plant during energy production. This makes some of the best winter fishing around due to the release of warm water into the lake.

Thomas Hill area is managed by the Conservation Department and consists of the 4,950-acre Thomas Hill Reservoir, surrounded by 4,381 acres of land which is approximately 60 percent open and 40 percent forested.  The north end of the reservoir features several wetland units, that beavers have built and attract a variety of migrating birds.

The area also has an improved campground with concrete pads, shelters, fire grates, and privies. Three concrete boat ramps are located on the lake.
