In July 2008, a small EAB(Emerald Ash Borers) infestation was discovered at a Wappapello Lake campground. Since then, the beetle has spread to a few other areas in the state. Controlling its spread will depend on early detection. Please learn to identify report and control EAB in your area. Donít move firewood. Emerald ash borers travel in firewood. The easiest way to keep them from spreading is to avoid buying "exotic" firewood and/or moving it from place to place. What is exotic firewood? Any stick of wood that comes from more than 50 miles from the place it was cut. If you burn firewood in your home stove or use it for camping, cut and burn your own or make sure the wood you buy comes from a local forest. Check out this Donít Move Firewood video to find out how easy it is to slow the spread of EAB. Don't plant ash trees. EAB feed exclusively on ash trees. If you deprive them of food, they can't survive. Choose from any number of other suitable hardwoods for shade, habitat and timber. Learn to identify infestations. Then call 866-716-9974. Many factors can stress ash trees, and lots of little green bugs look like EAB. Please try to make sure you've discovered EAB before you call.

Lake Elevation at Normal Pool: 606.8

Release Rate: 606.7  

Level: 9.00 feet high  Temperature:

Lake Map

Report by: South Fork Resort 

Lake level is 613.2. It doesn't look like it will go up much more for now. That means they will most likely be running water through the dam pretty steady for the next week or two. 

CRAPPIE: It seems like a lot of people are catching plenty of crappie, but mostly small fish in the 7-8" range. With the Corp going to need to run water through the dam the best bet might be to fish below the dam. They bite pretty quick down there when they run water. The fish tend to be smaller down there but if the lake fish are only 7" or 8" they should be pretty comparable. Toss a jig into the eddies and the bites are pretty much every cast. 

No reports on any other fish but with this large inflow of water there should be some catfish action starting up. Look for the usual haunts with inflows. 

All of us here at South Fork wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. 

The store will be closing for regular hours as of Christmas. We will go back to regular hours again next spring. Lodging is still available - just call us and we will make arrangements. We also still have minnows and goldfish so just call and we will take care of you.

Bass have been hitting a a variety of baits up close to the buckbrush that is showing by the shores.   

Crappie are a little slow but are being taken around brush piles in about 25 feet of water.   

Walleye are being caught on deep running crankbaits, haven't heard of any being taken by live bait.   

Muskies are being caught trolling the flats. 

 Good luck from Pomme Muskie Guide Service.

Osage Bluff

Updated 4/21/2016

 

Report By : Osage Bluff Marina

It looks like spring has finally here with spring showers and lots of wind. The COE has the lake pulled down to 704.5 which puts us about 1 1/2' low so caution has to be used when running with  more stumps sticking out then normal. It is a good time though to do some looking for things to fish later on this summer. With that there are lots of things happening right now on the lake. The crappie spawn has started along with the mushrooms coming up. Then we have turkey season going on with lots of gobblers this year.

LAKE LEVEL:             704.5

WATER TEMP:           61 deg.

WATER CLARITY:      Stained. 

CRAPPIE: The crappie ate starting to move to the banks: The after noon bite is still the best but you can catch fish pretty much all day. The males have moved up into 2 to 4' of water and building nests. The females are in their holding pattern at 3' to 5'. Long poling is the best right now. You con catch fish with a jig and bobber set about 1 1/2' deep. The pockets about 1/2 way back in the creeks seem to be the best right now. Talked to several people walking the banks and they were doing good also. Beat colored jigs were black and chartreuse. With the stained water you still have to move the baits slow but it is clearing quickly. With the way it is going now I think by the weekend road runners and sliders will start in.  

BASS: The bass are also liking the spring weather and have moved shallow like the crappie: Flukes and do nothing worms are starting to pick up fish in 2' to 4' of water along with lizards and jig and frog. Lay downs seem to be the most productive cover now. 2' to 5' of water has been holding good fish. Black and blue jigs and pumpkin lizards with a dipped tail are the best colors. Spinner baits on the flats in 2' to 4' are also working on fish up chasing shad. White and chartreuse has been the best color. With the water temp at 61 deg. might not hurt to try a buzz bait or spook.  

WHITES & HYBRIDS: It's getting time to start checking the humps with jigging spoons for whites.. It might be a little early but with the water temp rising like it is you might find some early. Also trolling a deep running crank bait in the same areas might work. 

CATFISH: The best bite now is about 1/2 way back in the creeks running lines and jugs in front of the pockets. in 8' to 12' of water with baits set about 4'. This is the time of the year to pick up some real big blues. 

WALLEYE: No Report this week but you might want to start checking the humps around KK Island.  

That's it for the report this week. Like I said earlier there's lots of things happening on the lake right now so come on down and enjoy. The marina and restaurant are open and we are ready to go for the season. We have a few stalls left for the season so if we can help you out with that you can reach us at Osage Bluff Marina 660-438-2939 or www.Osagebluff.com. Also check us out on face book for the latest updates at Osage Bluff Marina.

That's it for the report this week. As I mentioned earlier we are open and breakfast will start at 7:00 am. We have our bait in along with gas. There are a few seasonal stalls left so if you are interested you can reach us at Osage Bluff Marina 660-438-2939. Check us out on face book at Osage Bluff Marina for the latest updates. 

Don't forget to book in for the holidays.  

  That's it for this week from Osage Bluff Marina, 660-438-3939 or at www.osagebluff.com.   We are also on face book at Osage Bluff Marina.

Till next week

Lake level 705.61 Water clarity: Great shape

Lake temp:

Report By : Bucksaw Marina       

The Lake is open for now. With cooling temps this week could be subject to change.  

 Crappie- The fish are being caught in the Sparrow Foot quarry. Also, spider rigging in the mouths of coves has been producing nice heavy crappie.  Fish in 20-25 feet of water and fish 15 feet deep.  

 Bass- There is not many Anglers out bass fishing but should start mid-February. 

 Catfish- Fishing with jugs and rod and reel will produce in shallow water. Fresh cut shad or perch will work for bait.
