Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 12-28-16

​By Steve Blake

Current water level is 705.23 and water surface temp is 41 degrees.

The warmer than normal temps and sunshine made for some great days to fish this week. I guided three days this week and the fishing pressure in the dam area has really slowed down the crappie bite. Yesterday there literally was not a single brushpile within three miles of the dam that did not have a boat on it. There is a bite at the tops of the brushpiles on chartreuse combination colors. The fish are from 10 to 15 feet deep depending on where the top of the pile you are fishing is at. Still catching a lot of small fish you just have to be patient and weed thru them to boat the better keepers. I will be guiding again later in the week and will be looking for fish farther up the lake to escape the pressure the fish are getting in the dam area. I have heard good reports coming from the upper Grand, upper Tebo, and mid Pomme Arms of the lake where fish are being taken on the river channel edges with jigs fished 10 to 15 feet deep. The best concentrations have been on the bluffs at the channel bends of the upper rivers. Looks like we have four more days of decent weather this week according tom accu weather so the bite should hold up.

See you on the lake!!!!
