Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 10-2-2019

By Steve Blake 

Current water level is 709.50 and water surface temp is 78 degrees.

Well it has been a great week for fishing with the lake getting closer to normal pool. There are two patterns working for the crappie. Fishing bluffs 15 to 20 feet deep a foot or two off the bottom, or on brush-piles in 12 to 20 feet of water have both been good. Minnows or SWARM jigs are working equally well.

The white bass are scattered with some fish still on the current break humps on Bob Bates 1/2 ounce spoons, and some fish beginning to move to the windy main lake points hitting in line spinners. With the cooler weather this week water temps should drop some making the point bite really take off for whites and hybrids.

Large mouth are moving to the creeks and spinner-baits and square-bills are producing on the channel swings half way back.

Cats as it seems like they always are still hitting great. Jugs or rod and reel in 10 to 20 feet of water or in the backs of the big creeks with cut shad and bluegill best bait.

We have the best shad population in the lake that I have ever seen in 36 years. Things are setting up for GREAT fall fishing for all species. Come on down to Sterett Creek marina and get in on the action. It should last well into November!!!!!!!!
