Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 8-6-2019

​By Steve Blake

Current water level 719.70 and falling water surface temp 84 degrees.

After many weeks of anticipation we are getting back to normal. We no longer have an extended walkway, and we have a full parking lot at Sterett Creek Marina!!!!!! Lil' Papa Joe's in full operation and the Drunken Minnow is open on the Friday evening and Saturdays.

As for the fishing things are improving there also. Crappie are being taken at depths of 10 to 20 feet in the flooded timber with minnows being the best bait. As the water continues to fall the shallower brush piles on the flats should get hot for crappie also.

We had limits of nice 1 to 2 pound white bass for all on two days this week. We found them in 9 to 18 feet of water in the KK Island area on 1/2 ounce Bob Bates jigging spoons.

Large mouth have been great on top waters early in the day and plastics after the sun gets up. Look for these in current funnel cuts and on the inside bend points with current in 8 to 15 feet of water on then plastics.

Catfish still good on jugs on the flats set 10 feet deep in 20 feet of water with cut shad, and bluegill the best baits. Lots of cats over the slot.

The nest few weeks should see all fishing action pick up even more thank goodness. The weir and the humps are getting close to having the right depth to hold hybrids and should heat up also. I know everyone has been chomping at the bit to get the lake back to a reasonable level so come on down to Sterett Creek and enjoy our beautiful area. 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!
