Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 3-20-2018

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 707.33 and water surface temp at the dam is 44 degrees while you can find 45 to 47 in backs of the creeks.

Rain and cold this week have been a putting a hold on most fishing. We did manage to get a couple of days on the water and took some nice crappie mostly black crappie in the 10 to 12 inch size. We found fish half way back in the major creeks on the lower lake laying on the edge of the channel 15 feet down right on the bottom. We took all of our fish on a 1/4 ounce Bob Bates short shank jighead in pink tipped with different combos of char SWARM JIGS. The spider rig bite continues to be good on the upper ends of the lake fishing 3 to 8 feet deep in 6 to 10 feet of water. We have two 50 degree nights this weekend backed up with two 70 degree days with sunshine. This should put the crappie in a very active mode and what fish that are still deep should move in to feed shallower with the fast rise in water temps.

Spoonbill anglers have been tearing them up from all reports on both Truman and LOZ. FIsh from 30 to 70 pounds and more have come in in great numbers this week.

Have not had any bass reports this week.

Cats are still doing well on cut shad fishing the windy flats in 3 to 10 feet of water on both Truman and LOZ.

Work at Sterett Creek Marina has been going on at a fast pace with the new dock already finished as well as several improvements in the campground. The staff has been at it all winter to improve your Sterett Creek stay.

Looks like a beautiful weekend see ya on the water!!!

Almost time...
