Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 4-8-2019

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 719.93 and slowly falling. Water surface temp at the dam is 51 degrees, but as high as 58 in the backs of the creeks and coves.

With the rising water temps things are starting to pick up. A few white bass and hybrids way up the main creeks on rattle traps, crappie as of yesterday were still staged in 18 to 22 feet of water in the steeper rocky bank coves near the dam. Bass are starting to move shallow to feed up and spinner baits have produced well in the warmer water in the back ends of the creeks and coves. Blues and channels on cut shad and night crawlers respectively in the deep holes in the creeks. We have 3 more days this week with highs in the 70's and lows in the 50's which should see the shallow water action for all species go crazy as water temps will surely top the 60 degree mark. Looks like this week is gonna give us some fast action fishing.

Look for crappie to move into the steeper banks in buck brush, and into the willows on the flooded flats. As always SWARM JIGS any char combo will be hot. Bass and cats will also move to the flooded cover. Full moon is next week so we should see the first cycle of spawning in the next seven days.

Ken, Cathy, and the crew at Sterett Creek have been hard at it all winter making major improvements in all aspects of the marina, motel, and camp ground. I think every one will be amazed at just how much work has been done to make your time at Sterett the best experience ever. 

See ya on the water!!!!!

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!
