Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 7-27-2017

​By Steve Blake

Current water temp is 87 degrees and water level is 706.66 but that will change today with all the rain we will get a good rise in water level I would say at least 3 feet.

The big rains today will change patterns for some species while others will not be effected that much.

Crappie will still be best in the brush piles and trees 8 to 12 feet deep on the main lake flats. Minnows are producing the best action. Had an excellent day yesterday in the brush piles 8 to 9 feet deep in 10 to 12 feet of water with minnows. The bigger fish bit well as we limited in 3 hours with several 12 to 13 inch fish. We were in the Sterret Creek Area.

With the coming rise in water level some of the green stuff will again be flooded so in two to 3 days the bass should move into the bushes and grass and munch spinner baits or buzz baits. The backs of the creeks and coves should be a good bet by the weekend.

The cats also should move into the backs of the creeks to feed in the rising water as it will bring new food sources.

Whites and hybrids continue to be spotty with the best action for them in the last two hours of the day when they school on top chasing shad. best areas for

this have been G-10 and the KK Island Areas.

With the heavy rains the upper lake will probably muddy up so the lower to mid lake areas will be the best fishing.

That's it for this week see ya at Sterett Creek!!!!

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!
