Truman Lake is nationally known for its excellent crappie and largemouth bass fishing. The 55,600 acre reservoir is fed by four major rivers and several smaller streams, creating a broad degree of diversity within the reservoir. Over 8,800 acres of timber were left standing in the lake to improve aquatic habitat. In addition to crappie and largemouth bass, the lake supports good populations of both blue and flathead catfish. Truman Lake has been popular with tournament fishermen for many years.

Full service marinas and campgrounds are conveniently located to provide access and accommodations. During the past few years, fish spawns have been good and fishing has been exciting. Please keep in mind that day use fees are required to launch boats at any Corps managed boat ramp.

Bledsoe Ferry Park, located just downstream of Truman Dam, is one of the most popular bank fishing areas in the State of Missouri. The upper end of the Lake of the Ozarks extends to the back side of Truman Dam. A no fishing zone exists below the powerhouse - know the boundary before you cast. In the spring of the year, fish from Lake of the Ozarks move upstream and congregate below the dam creating some great bank fishing. [Harry S. Truman Lake. www.nwk.usace.army.mil, 01/24/2008]

Truman Reservoir Largemouth Bass Tips: [ Add Tip ]
Largemouth Bass Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Largemouth bass fishing is going to be pretty slow at 84 degree water temperature. Bass will start moving much slower and feeding less aggressively until the water temperature starts to get back down to comfortable levels. When the water temperature is up this high, it's time to get out fishing early and late in the day when the sun is not on the water. When you can get out for the entire day, it's a great time to fish some deeper water. Many large bass are taken this time of year since bass fishermen typically gets out deeper and fish slower with larger baits. Like any other time of year, the slower you fish with bigger baits on the deep drops and river channels, the better chance you have at a lunker. This is a great time to catch a trophy. Good luck out there today!

Truman Reservoir Solar and Lunar Conditions
Current Lunar Fishing Tip:
The crescent moon will have better gravitational pull than a gibbous or half moon. However the affects of the moons gravitational will be decreased since the sun and moon aren't pulling in conjunction with one another. It's time to pay close attention to the other fishing factors in the weather to make the best decision for hitting the water.
