Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 12-22-16

​By Steve Blake

Current water level is 705.3 and surface water temp is 38 degrees. 

Well I am unable to update this week because we are froze in at the marina. The marina itself is ice free but the ice outside the marina perimeter is all the way to the point. So can't get my boat to the main lake darn it!. With temps in the 50 to 60 degree range and rain the next couple of days the ice should not be a problem buy Saturday afternoon. The ramp at Shawnee bend is still open and usable however. 

I really don't think patterns will change that much since the last report. Just like mid summer patterns in mid winter the fish stay pretty consistent in what they do. That being said stick with the bluffs 15 to 23 feet deep with a 1/4 ounce jig with chartreuse combinations being best fished very SLOWWWWWW just a foot off the bottom for crappie. 

The black bass on jerk-baits should also still be good on the steep main lake and secondly points. Shad patterns are the best bet here. 

I will be back on the water next week and update the report. 

I would like to take this time to tell all of you how much I appreciate the many positive comments you have made on the fishing report this year. 

Ken and Cathy have done an amazing job of making Sterett Creek the place to be to enjoy the Truman Lake area and all it has to offer. From myself and all of us here at Sterett Creek Marina I want to wish you a Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year. !!!!!! 

New report next week.

Sterett Creek on Truman Lake

We are located approximately 3 miles north of Warsaw, MO on US 65.  Sterett Creek is on the shore of Truman Resevoir (commonly referred to as Truman Lake).  Truman Lake is the largest man-made lake in Missouri and is home to many species of fish and wildlife.  Our Marina offers easy access to the Osage, Grand, Big Tebo and Little Tebo arms of the lake.  Our Motel and Campground offer easy access to the Sterett Creek Loop of the Truman Lake Mountain Bike Park.  Sterett Creek is the perfect place for outdoor fun!
