Fishing Report as of September 16. 2023

The current Lake Level is 704.28 and the average temperature in the   70's  Lake is clear and dangerously low.  Fishing in the main lake area seems to be pretty slow except for the catfish bite.  All other cpecies fair to slow.  Good bite above Bucksaw and Berry Bend  Best baits minnows and jigs for crappie, spoons and inline spinners for whites, and live shad, spoons and sassy ahads for Hybrids. The main problem, as I see it, the water has been low and crystal clear with very little current.  Most hybrid catches have been in 40-50 feet of water with hybrids suspended 15-20 feet just roaming  and feeding on shad. Been a tough year for the ole man, First came a double knee replacement the 30th of December which knocked me out until April.  In June I had bad fall and broke my arm and cracked my wrist and was out until September.  SO FAR, I'm Still rolling along,  To those who have called and those who have sent cards, I want to thank each

  The current Lake Level is 706.68 and the average temperature in the upper  70's.  Current reports are really good as the crappie are moving into the trees in both low and deep water. They are also  showing up on the flats from 12 ft. down, and shallow humps to 18 ft.  Most crappie being caught on minnows. jig fishing with pink, white and green chartreuse tails.  Trolling 'shad rap and flicker shad have produced limits. White bass are chasing shad at a shallow depth.  We haven't seen very many schooling yet on the flats or shallow humps.  Trolling has been our best method of catching whites as well as a hybrid or two. Several  guides I have talked to are claiming the clear water and very little current has the white and hybrids scattered.  Heavy rains in Kansas could help color up the Osage Arm of the lake which might help. For those of you who chase the Blu Cats, they seem to be of fire with live shad being the ticket to a

The current Lake Level is 705.33 with the average temperature in the low  70's.  Current reports are really good as the crappie are moving onto their spawning banks.  Most crappie being caught are black crappie with a few whites now and then. Most of the males have been within 5 ft of the bank and the females have as deep as 12 to 15ft . A few white and some really nice hybrids are being caught on live shad.  I had several great crappie trips in the last two weeks, More good news to come in the weeks ahead....

The current Lake Level is 707.39 with the average water temperature in the low to mid 40's.  Current reports are really good as the crappie are moving into their spawning areas.  Most crappie being caught are black crappie with a few whites now and then. Turn your depth finder up high as most all these fish are right on the bottom. As you go up the lake in the Grand Arm or in the Osage Arm in the Talley Bend area, the fish are in the creeks.  Both minnows and jigs are producing good fish. Physical Therapy is moving along quite well.  Three days a week and I am sure I can fall out of the boat with pure grace.  It has been a journey, to say the least, but I had reached that point of replace or retire, and I wasn't going to retire.  I am taking reservations for April on through December...

-The current Lake level is 706.52 and slowly rising, with the water temperature in the low 40's. Well all I can say is, it's been one hell of a winter for me so far.  December 30, I went in for a double knee replacement.  After a few post operative complications namely A-fib, which came from out of nowhere, and with that and in hospital rehab I finally got out on January 20, 2023.  Seems like the older you get the longer it takes to mend.  After the hospital rehab came in home rehab provided by Benton County Services. Now have graduated from a walker to a cane and hopefully soon to be able to drive.  I have had to depend on friends to take my daughter to town for groceries and prescriptions.  I need to give a special thank you to my friend a fellow guide Jim Cuda who has come from Odessa, and taken me back to Kansas City for Doctor's appointments.  I consider him my Special Friend.  Jim is operator of Hybrid Mania

The current Lake level is 706.39 with the water temperature in the low 40's. With the cold front moving in you can expect some surface ice so be careful.3 It's been a crappie fishing bonanza, as they have reached the winter pattern along the bare bank bluffs. Casting an 1/8th ounce jig near the bank and working it SLOWLY back to the boat has produced several fast limits of nice crappie.  This pattern should continue until March when they head to the spawning coves. I'll be cutting back this winter, beginning in November to catch up on the lure making.  Will be having both knees replaced December 30. What a way to end the year and start 2023. I really hate to admit age is catching up....It's still just a number and I still haven't decided what I want to be when I grow up....BUT....I'm going to wait until Spring this go around. Plans are to be back on the water by April 1, 2023. As many of you know, Sterett Creek Marina and Resort

The current Lake level is 704.66 with the water temperature in the high 40's.  The lake is dangerously low while the Dam is being worked on and could possibly reach lower levels.

Casting an 1/8th ounce jig near the bank and working it SLOWLY back to the boat has produced several fast limits of nice crappie.  This pattern should continue until March when they head to the spawning coves. Mike Edwards from Shelbyville, Illinois came down for the annual Thanksgiving Crappie-thon.  Mike and I have been doing this for about 9 years and this had to be the best ever.  Two limits (30) each day in about 3 hours.  We started at 9 and were back at the dock by 12:30.  It was  a real blast.  A few days we had to hide from the wind, but still caught our fish in the 3 to 3 1/2 hours. I'll be cutting back this winter, beginning in November

The current Lake level is 704.73 with the water temperature in the high 50's.  The lake is dangerously low while the Dam is being worked on and could possibly reach lower levels. White bass are still in the shallows feeding on shad on the windy points and backs of the coves.  Best bait is a inline spinner like a Blue Fox cast within inches of the bank.  Small Shad Raps are also a good choice.  Watch out because there may be a hybrid up there too.

The current Lake level is 704.62 with the water temperature in the low 60's.  The lake is dangerously low while the Dam is being worked on and could possibly reach lower levels. Hybrid fishing came to an abrupt halt for me and the white bass became real spooky. We had to make very long casts for the bigger whites and then they were gone.  With the cold temperatures and higher winds, look for the whites on the wind blown banks.  Baits would include, rooster tails, Pop"R's and Shad Raps. Most of my trips have been for crappie, which we have found in 15-18 ft of water right on the bottom dragging minnows.  Should be time to switch to jigs on the bare bank bluffs and some of the deeper timber areas.  I would think 18-20 feet would be ideal. I'll be cutting back this winter, beginning in November to catch up on the lure making.  My old bones are getting to the point they need a vacation, so this winter I'm going to try and

The current Lake level is 704.80 with the water temperature in the low 70's.  The lake is dangerously low while the Dam is being worked on and could possibly reach lower levels. This has been a pretty good month so far with the hybrids and white bass. It was a strange week as if the sun was out the fish were on fire, but if it was cloudy, should have stayed home.  All the fish were caught in less than 20 feet of water on a  1 ounce green and white "Hot Dog" jigging spoon.  We were casting as far as we could because of spooking the fish if up to close, and hopping it back to the boat.  Once the "feed" began we could slowly retrieve the spoon and get a good hit.  Most of our hybrids were in the 6-7 lb range with one or two 8-9.  Lots of White bass also running with the hybrids. I have seen a few limits of crappie at the cleaning station at Sterett Creek Marina, but
