Are there any boat ramps on the Pomme De Terre River Arm south of Fairfield and Highway 83? I have been driving to Warsaw to fish around the dam but I was hopeing to find somewhere a little closer to home with easy access off of Highway 65. I drive up Highway 65 from Strafford.

Please indicate where any ramps are located and how to get there from Highway 65.

I believe there is a ramp at an MDC area north of Hermitage. You can find it on the MDC Atlas, on their website.
Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

There is one located near Fristoe MO. If you go up 65 north of Preston, just before you get to Fristoe you will pass a rock house on your left, also has the log name thingys out in front. Turn left (west) on that road. Can't remember the number on it?? Follow it for what seems like forever and you will get to a 3 way split. Turn right and you go another 100 miles or so it seems and will come to a gravel/mud ramp at the mouth of I believe Prairie Creek, you can see 83 hwy bridge from there. Go straight and you will dead end (DON"T go straight), take the left and follow it and you will come to a gravel launch/parking area. I have caught a lot of crappie within a mile of that spot. It is further from my house that the Avery ramp but a lot easier to launch and park at, without nearly as many stumps etc. in the way.

A Lot Better than Avery???? Probably be closer for me to go to Fairfield from my place on B HWY though.

From your house yeah it would be quicker to go to fairfield. I don't launch at Fristoe a lot as I come from Humansville, unless I leave from work. I dislike the Avery side ramp, one person parks wrong and everyone is screwed. I have been stuck in the mud trying to park, banged off of stumps trying to get out and back from the channell, and you normally have to launch sort of off kilter from the ramp. But there sure are plenty of crappie in that country at times.

I think the one I mentioned is closer to 65. It's the Cross Timbers WMA. It's been ages since I was there, but it isn't to far north of 54, east of Hermitage. I think it's quite aways from 83.

If it's Cross Timbers the water has to be up to go anywhere.

There are ramps at Hermitage (south Bridge), rough hollow, slick rock and sapps landing. But they are all river accesses except for Sapps Landing which can be sort of a hybrid at times. Except for sapps the others really don't give access to the rest of the Pomme Arm unless the river is up an running and you better know where you are going if that is the case because you don't have much time to decide in the current.

Sapps is the one I remember, and I was only there once. I suppose that lake level is crucial.

Sapps can be a tricky place to launch, short very steep ramp. If Truman is really low like last year if you back too far down the ramp suddenly your trailer tires fall off the end and the trailer is hung, saw a couple trailers that had been badly damaged trying to use more horsepower to pull them up and over the edge of the ramp. There can be some fantastic fishing in the area at the right times though, I'll be back many more times to that ramp. I make sure anymore that my reels are bagged and often iside a rod box also on the trip down the gravel road, that dust gets into every tiny nook and cranny.

Well shoot, we thought you were talking about using a boat. You don't need a ramp to jump in. :lol:

You know while down there I was thinking how it would be to use my Little Jon make a two day float from either Hermitage or Cross Timbers Access to Avery Access.

I was at the Outlet park, which is immediately below the Pomme dam and people were doing pretty well on good sized channels around wood. I'll bet if a person did that float and fished all the laydowns hard he could do real well on channels.
Here's what the river access info says.

Lower Pomme de Terre River
0.0 Put in at campsite at west side of river at base of the dam.
4.0 County Road 273 Bridge. No access.
6.9 Hermitage Access at Hwy. 254 Bridge.
8.6 Hwy. 54 Bridge. No access. U.S. Army Corps of Engineers' public land on both sides of river ftom here to lake.
13.6 Cross Timbers public use area access. Off Hwy. U on County Road 281.
18.6 Ford, last access above Truman Lake. OffHwy. Y and County Road 217. Take un maintained road to the east.
20.0 Harry S. Truman Reservoir may back up to here.
22.0 Sapp Landing Access, boat ramp and parking lot on County Road 64. Last access above reservoir.
