Where to stay at Truman

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

Wife and I are planning a trip to Truman in mid-April. Wondering which arm will offer the best opportunity to catch spawning crappie and how far up that arm we should plan on going.

Thanks for any and all replies.

If water level is good, the Pomme Arm from around Fairfield on up should be good.  Honestly in mid April it should all be good from mid lake up.  There are several decent places in Warsaw, and instead of Fairfield you could launch at Osage Bluff and be in the same area.  Heck if they are running water.below the dam trolling shad raps can produce some nice walleye, hybrids and whites near the City Harbor.

Look at your Map all the way from Fairfield Ramp to Sapps Landing should be good there is all kinds of standing timber so take it easy.

If they are running water at the Dam if you can find a place should catch Crappie on Jig fast as you can cast just find the right color.

Me being Bank tied I have several places I can drive right to the water cast a Minnow out by a Tree and catch my limit. 

I might add White Bass and Channel Catfishing is great too.

Like said before there is plenty places to stay in Warsaw.

Thanks for the quick replies, this is great info for me. As far as places, once I pick the area to fish, I'll start looking at places to stay. Thanks again guys!

If you are unfamiliar with the Fairfield to Sapp area takr yur time and don't get caught past chimney rock when the sun goes down, it gets DARK up there but the fishing can be awesome.  Good thing about the Warsaw area you can go to LOZ pretty easily as well, check with the local shops to see where and what is working. Cold fronts can really make it difficult in April as well if they hit while there.  PS don't be afraid to throw some crank baits at windy points, no telling what might eat it.

Thanks! April can be a crap shoot weather-wise but as I remember it was May last year that we had all of the rain.

We are booked at Bucksaw in mid April. I have a question. Is it safe for your prop as long as you stay in the lane? Guess what I'm asking, is it fairly easy to move around as long as you don't stray from the channel?

LOL, Nothimg is safe on Truman.  Form.the most part the lanes and channels are fine, just don't get out of it.  I am a coward, I don't run at full.speed any place I am not 100% sure of, but then again I don't usually get too far from where I put in either.

I can not ever remember being on the Lake and not thumping a tree. You might think your safe in the channel then hit something. Some places I knew well and would bring the Boat on plane scare the something out of my wife but she was in the boat with me one time when I had it on its side. LOL
