Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 01-29-2018

​By Steve Blake

Current water level is 705.48 and water surface temp is 36 degrees.

Well the ice is gone for now and it is another chilly day today but Tuesday and Wednesday this week are forecast to be in the low to upper 50 degree range so it's time to hit the water.

Strong reports are coming in from both Truman Lake and Upper lake of the Ozarks as blue cats and crappie have gone crazy since the ice left. Big blue cats are coming in on Upper Lake O and on the upper ends of Truman, with many fish of supersize as well as good keepers as they feed on the shad kill. Fish from 3 to 40 pounds in great numbers are coming on shad fished in 3 to 15 feet of water on flats.

The crappie bite on the lower lake at Truman has been really good the past few days with limits of nice crappie on Swarm jigs in chartreuse color combos fished on the 1/4 ounce Bob Bates short shank jig-head at depths of 20 to 25 feet off the bluffs and over suspended shad balls. Limits have been easy and the fish have been running 10 to 13 inches. The warmer weather the next two days should make for some great crappie action!!!!

I have not heard any reports on large mouth bass but I cannot imagine that they would not be on a shad colored jerk-bait like donkey kong with the shad kill. I would look for these on the steeper main lake chunk rock points. Use a twitch twitch pause retrieve.

I have the next two days open if you would like to get in on the action gimme a buzz at 660-525-0692.

See ya at Sterett Creek Marina!!!!
