Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 4-23-2019

​By Steve Blake

Current water level on Truman is 713.84 and falling. Water surface temp at the dam is 57 degrees, but in the backs of the larger creeks that go way back off the lake you can find as high as 64 degrees.

We had a few male crappie starting to move to the banks last week before the cold front which backed them off. Now with 3 days of 60 to 70 degree temps the males are starting to move back to the banks in the areas where you can find 60 degree water or better. We took several big males today in 3 feet of water fishing the edge of the weeds and buck brush with a jig and cork set 18 inches. The females were still down 7 to 12 feet. Char and white and char and blue SWARM JIGS working best.

Reports of several good large mouth taken on a variety of baits also on the edge of the weed lines in the backs of the creeks. Spinner baits buzz baits and jig and frog all producing.

Channel cats have been hot way up the creeks in 4 to 8 feet of water right in the channels on night crawlers. Blues have been a little deeper on cut shad in the same creeks in 10 to 15 feet of water.

With the water falling and constant generation at the dam a few whites and hybrids have begun to show up on the humps in 8 to 15 feet of water on jigging spoons. This should be better as the lake continues to fall.

Gonna be a great week for fishing see ya on the water at beautiful Sterett Creek Marina!!!!!!!!!
