  1. They are running a lot of water through both dams so that is what is causing the current. You should try Warsaw next time. The catfish bite has been excellent. We have been catching at least one over every trip with several slot fish and a ton of unders.
  2. Right now on Truman, I am having better success finding them late afternoon suspended, with them moving into 20-25 ft right at sunset.
  3. Not that you asked, but if I was fishing that lake, the red spots are the most hybrid and striper looking places that stand out to me. I usually look for places like these when fishing new water and usually find them. You will know for sure if you see boats on these spots near sunrise and sunset. I would start out in 35 fow and graph up into 14 fow looking for marks. Good luck and let me know if you see anything like my graph pic at any of these spots.
  4. There were 2 logs about 12" out of the water just up from Rockaway in the channel that I passed Friday afternoon, but that is the only time I have been on that part of the lake. I launched at empire and went up just passed Rockaway. Didn't notice anything else other than shallow weeds. Go slow out of empire though. Gets very shallow trying to get to the channel from the ramp. I had my motor trimmed up high and was still churning mud. Worst case, you could just use your trolling motor to get over the shallow stuff. Just saw this was from June. Oh well, I guess this is just a current conditions report.
  5. Went to my friends lake house up the Gravois. First time fishing LOZ lower lake, but was still able to find some nice hybrids and a couple of walleye.
  6. I am sorry that offended you, but without proof of ameren lying, it is indeed a theory, and reading that back, I should have left out parade. It does come across as antagonistic, and that wasn't my intent. Yes, friends sounds great. Let's go chase hybrids sometime! I have been catching the snot out of them on Truman since the beginning of April.
  7. You are kind of a cyber bully aren't you? I edited my response above with more explanation for you and am I the only one that hears a voice yelling your condescending words in my head as I read them, lol
  8. Well it looks like I wasn't too far off, and now you are cursing at me. The difference in daily versus is hourly is the definition of the words. If you looked at a page that is only updated every morning, then the level will definitely be different several hours later especially since they increased Truman's discharge to 60k yesterday. I guess the USGS is fudging the numbers also. I will go back to lurking so I won't get yelled at and antagonized over a difference of opinions. God bless
  9. I knew you would have a rebuttal as you always do. I am not going to speculate as to why something is being done without fully researching all the variables. I also don't want to get into an argument over something as benign as water level. What I do know is, the stats you posted are from the Corp "DAILY" info page and if you would scroll down a little further, it clearly says it is updated at 10 a.m. I prefer to go by the USGS gauges which I provided a link below, but to be clear, I am not telling anyone what gauges to look at or how to live their life. I am simply providing other tools so others can be aware of them. https://waterdata.usgs.gov/nwis/uv?site_no=380717092395401
  10. Not trying to rain on the conspiracy theory parade, but they only update that page once a day guys.

    Fairfield Ramp

    They have shut off the water and Truman is on the rise quickly. Fairfield will probably close again soon.

    Lake condition

    Google will work for pretty much anything. Closed boat ramps include Windsor Crossing, Fairfield, Shawnee Bend, and Berry Bend. Ramps that may be closed next week include Long Shoal, Osage Bluff, Thibaut Point, Crowe's Crossing, and Sac River. High water boat ramps are open at Shawnee Bend, Berry Bend, and State Park. Bledsoe Ferry Ramp is also open. Also, I believe osage bluff still has a useable ramp per their fishing report today.

    Lake condition

    Level is 727 and slowly falling. Normal pool is 706. Fairfield will still be underwater as most all of the regular ramps are. You will need to use the high water ramps.
