Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 6-29-2018

By Steve Blake

Current water level is 706.10, and water surface temp at the dam is 80 degrees.

It has been a great week for fishing in the Sterett Creek Area for all species. True to form Truman fishing gets better in the hot weather.

We have taken limits of crappie in the 10 to 12 inch size range every day out in 3 to 5 hours using minnows fished 8 to 15 feet deep in 10 to 20 feet of water, The whole trick is to find cover on the flats whether it is stumps or brushpiles, and fish the minnow just a foot or two above the cover. Once you find a few stick with it they are schooled up. Take plenty of minnows as you will have to weed thru alot of small fish to catch a decent limit of keepers. There is also a dipping bite up the river arms with minnows fished around the timber 8 to 12 feet deep in 10 to 20 feet of water.

White bass and hybrids have done some spotty surface feeding early and late in the day, but the best action has come for those fishing live shad near the humps down 12 to 15 feet deep.

Largemouth bass bite has been with topwaters early and late, and 10 inch power worms during the day fished on main lake points and ledges 6 to 12 feet deep. Plum amd red shad have been the best colors.

Both blues and channel cats are still good on the main lake flats with live shad fished in 8 to 15 feet of water. Have also seen some nice flatheads come in this week on live perch.

That is it for this week enjoy your holiday. See at Sterett Creek Marina!!!!!
