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]

Walleye Tips for Current Conditions (automated):
Walleye will be starting to get a little slower in this water temperature. With walleye being a cold water fish, they will start becoming fairly lethargic in this water. With the fish slowing down the fishing will be more difficult to find and coax into biting. However they will be feeding and the walleye bite should still be good. This time of year is a good time to fall back to live bait as standard practice for the best bet at numbers and size of fish.

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.
