Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 10-20-2018

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 710.40 and water surface temp is 64 degrees.

The recent rains in KC have caused Truman to rise 5 feet in the past week. That being said the Osage Arm and much of the water in the upper lake areas in the other arms had muddied. Best fishing this week has been on the lower lake near the dam.

Crappie have scattered and have been tough this week. There are a few crappie being caught on the weir with 1/4 ounce jig heads rigged with char and pink Swarm jigs fished on the front drop of the weir in front of the gates.

White bass and hybrids have been the best bite and again on the weir. The water is very stained there so you have to fish baits like jigging spoons and sassy shads VERY VERY VERY slow to get bit. There have been several good hybrids in the 4 to 12 pound range taken there this week.

LARGE MOUTH ARE BEST IN THE BACKS OF THE CREEKS IN THE GRASS. Spinner baits, frogs, and buzz-baits fished on the edges of the grass have produced some nice baits.

Cats have been good in the current in the backs of the creeks, and on the main lake flats near the dam with cut shad.

The high water means they will be running the water on a regular basis and as the catch the water level and the lake begins to fall the whites and hybrids should get better in the weeks to come.

See ya at Sterett Creek Marina!!!!!
