    Although there are blues in MTL, it is not known to be a good producing lake for them. It seems that I read on here a while back that someone posted about a creel survey done at MTL over a two day period on a good portion of the lake versus a large cove on Truman over a 2 hour period and there were a lot less blues found at MTL. I do know that people do catch them on a regular basis, but they aren't as abundant as you might think. Doesn't matter though, does it...fishing is fishing!!!

    GOOD LUCK!:big_smile:​

    I was at MTL a couple weekends ago, but we were not targeting Blues. Crappie was our fish of choice and we ended up putting over 100 nice ones in the boat over a two day period. It really surprised me how good the crappie were this late in the year.

    I fish MTL a good bit though and it is true what has been said...really a better flathead lake than anything else.

    Try clarence Cannon Dam .com or south Fork Resort they both have lake levels, and fish reports. Lake is still very high, some regular ramps closed and they are useing the high water ramps. Normal pool is around 599 last I checked it was 624, thats on 16,400 acres of water. So its a whole new find them game especially crappie. hope this helps!
