Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 10-13-2017

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 704.66 and water surface temp is 69 degrees.

Lots of changes this week in fishing patterns.

Crappie on the lower lake near the dam are beginning to move to the bluffs and deeper brush piles in depths of 15 to 25 feet of water. Both minnows and jigs are working well.

The crappie on the upper river portions of the lake on the other hand are moving to the shallower timbered flats in depths of 6 to 10 feet with jigs in black and char or red and char working best fished on the stumps just off the bottom.

The white bass and hybrids are moving to the banks. Best banks have been those with fist size chunk rock on points that have the wind blowing into them. Pop R's and in line spinners like Rooster Tails, Shysters, Mepps are also producing shallow in one to three feet of water. Best areas have been near State Park, and the lower Osage.

Bass are still best on top water with Whopper Ploppers, and Pop R's working best on secondary points.

Cats continue to come in the dam area with cut shad fished on the bottom in 15 to 25 feet of water on rod and reel. Jug fishermen are still producing on the main lake flats with cut shad and jugs set in 10 to 20 feet of water.

That's it for this week see ya at Sterett Creek Marina!!!
