Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 5-24-2017

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 724.44 and water surface temp is 63 degrees.

It has been a good week for whites and hybrids. Finding them in 17 to 22 feet of water on humps and current breaks. For the hybrids a 3/4 ounce Bob bates jig-head rigged with a four inch chartreuse or white sassy shad has worked best on the bottom with a slow roll or stop and go retrieve. The whites have been best on a 1/2 to 3/4 ounce Bob Bates spoon in silver or chartreuse flash jigged off the bottom. Average hybrids have been 8 to 10 pounds and average white bass have been one to 2 pounds. They seem to be moving every day so you have to check several spots, but once you find them they are stacked up. G-4 G-10 and the dam area are good bets for action.

Crappie have been slow this week as there is so much cover still flooded for them to scatter out in. The same areas where we are finding the whites and hybrids have held some crappie in 20 to 25 feet of water and they are best taken on minnows fished just off the bottom.

Bass fishing has been slow but some large mouth have been taken on red shad Texas rigged worms on main lake points fished slow at depths of 8 to 15 feet.

No report on the cats this week.

See ya at Sterett Creek Marina!!!!! Papa Joe's is back open and we have the roads back open to the marina and campgrounds!!!!! HOOORAY!!!!
