Truman Lake Fishing Report

Fishing Report 9-15-2016

Current lake level is 708.90 and rising surface water temp is 77 degrees.

Withe the recent rains and the rise in water level they have been generating power at the dam usually in the afternoons after 12. That generation has the whites and hybrids biting on the weir both Bob Bates 1/2 ounce and 1 ounce spoons in chrome or white are taking fish jigged off the bottom on the front drop of the weir in 14 to 22 feet of water.

The crappie I have found this week with the rising water are moving from the 14 to 20 depths they have been in up to depths of 10 to 12 feet of water. Best fishing for me this week has been on the flats in the Sterett Creek and Little Tebo areas. Look for cover that is just off the bottom in 10 to 12 feet of water and fish minnows straight down at the very top of the cover. Still a lot of small fish that you have to weed thru to get a limit of good keepers so take plenty of minnows. Bite is still very very very soft and you have to wait for the crappie to pull down on the rod tip before setting the hook or you will miss a lot of fish.

Bass this week have been moving to the backs of the creeks and coves into the newly flooded grass and white and chartruse spinnerbaits and buzz baits are the best bet.

Cats have been slow on the lower end of the lake this week with only a few smaller blues and channels coming in.

That's it for this week hope to see ya at Sterett Creek marina or at Little Papa Joe's at Sterett Creek for a great breakfast!!!!
