Lake Of The Ozarks is in good condition right now as it is on the winter draw down. Most of the lake is clear but the backs of the big creeks a stained. Fishing is good with Jigs, jerk baits and A Rigs. Start half way back and fish dock, Brush, points and Channel swings. Fish slow, once you find them work the area good. Crappie are shallow for this time of year in about fifteen foot.
The Osage River is low and in good shape with clear water. Most of the baits that work on the lake will be good for the river too. I like to fish the slower deeper water this time of year. If they run water on the river stay home until it stays the same level for a few days.
