Truman Lake Fishing Report

fishing report 5-28-2015

Water level is 709 plus and rising fast after two days of torrential rain storms. Water surface temp is 71 degrees.
Well with the rising water conditions are changing daily. As far as crappie are concerned simply adjust your depth to match the rise. Whether you are fishing brushpiles or suspended fish in the trees however deep the fish were at 707 adjust to the rise. So at 709 go two feet deeper than you were at 707. Look for fish to be 8 to 14 feet deep. Minnows are still the best bet and will be in my opinion all summer.
It ususally takes the bass about three days to move into the flooded green cover on a fast rise so look for largemouth to be in the flooded green stuff by Sunday afternoon. Go with spinner baits, buzz baits, and weightless worms in the backs of the creeks and coves.
Whites and hybrids are still on the humps but I dont know how long that will last with the rising water. The humps they are on now will get too deep and they will move to areas and humps that have 10 to 15 feet on top of them as the water comes up. A 1/4 ounce Swarm crappie jig orange and chartruse in color tipped with a minnow fished on the humps in 20 to 26 feet of water has taken us limits of hybrids this week fished about one foot off the bottom.
Cats as they always do on a fast rise will move to the backs of the creeks in 3 to 6 feet of water and cut shad get the nod for best bait.
Have a great holiday week end!!! See ya at Sterettt Creek Marina!!!!
