Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 1-11-17

By Steve Blake

Water level is still right at 705 and water surface temp is 38 degrees.

Well not much to report on the fishing this week as the severe cold had about two thirds of the lake iced over, and after the warm up the winds hit 40 to 50 miles per hour for two days straight. Not safe conditions to be on the water. As I have said before as in mid summer mid winter patterns really do not change all that much so after the snow and ice pass this weekend there is a warm-up predicted for next week and fishing should be as good as it has been all winter as the lake will see no significant pressure at all for the two week period. High temperatures for Tuesday the 17th thru Tuesday the 24th of January are forecast to be in the 40's and 50's. That should be the best week of the winter so far to hit the crappie.

On another note Ken and Cathy continue to go all out on improvements to the marina, motel, and campground that will truly make Sterett Creek Marina the place to stay to enjoy all that Truman Lake has to offer. The new bar and grill, new campsites, and the new 50 amp hookups are all great improvements.

I am getting the cabin fever from not being on the water in a week, But the coming warm trend should get things going again.

See ya on the water!!!
