Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 7-27-2018

​By Steve Blake

Current water level is 705.50 and water surface temp at the dam is 84 degrees.

Crappie and catfish have been the best bite on Truman this week. The crappie fishing has been good on the brush piles in the Sterett Creek dam area with both minnows and jigs.

I have been targeting piles in 8 to 14 feet of water and fishing minnows right at the top of the brush. The bite is very very very soft so a sensitive rod is a must. Take plenty of minnows you will catch a ton of small crappie but the good fish are there with them. The long pole bite has been good up the Grand and Osage arms fishing minnows in 4 to 12 feet of water on the stump rows. Jack has been tearing up crappie on the lower Tebo Arm suspended down 12 feet in 20 to 22 feet of water on his Red Devil jigs. He taking limits daily.

The cats have been best on shad in 4 to 10 feet of water on main lake flats. Lots of fish under the slot perfect eating size coming in this week. Best area has been near the mile long bridge.

Bass have been slow with a few very early and late fish on top-waters while during the day fishing 10 inch power worms on ledges 12 to 15 feet down very slow has had some success.

The whites and hybrids have started to school a little bit early and late but the best bite for them continues to be live shad set 15 feet deep near the humps or trolling deep diving crank-baits in shad patterns just off the humps. 

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