Well its summer here in Branson, but the fish on Table Rock Lake are biting pretty well. Drop shot rigged Chompers and net bait finesse worms have been the best offering. Look for the bulk of the fish to be suspending in tree tops from 35’ – 55’ deep over as much as 100’, watch for fish to rise out of the trees on your electronics and drop baits to them. If the bite gets tough juicy Canadian night crawlers will take bass as well. White 1/2 oz war eagle spoons are taking fish in these areas as well. Our guides also have been using ½ oz and 3/4 oz net bait football jigs in PB&J or green pumpkin candy on gravel points with isolated rock or brush piles from 25’ – 35’ deep. The fish seem to be biting lake wide but the White River seems to be producing the best numbers while the dam area is producing bigger fish.

Fall is finally here in Branson, Missouri and the fishing on Table Rock Lake is great. The smallmouth, largemouth, and spotted bass are biting extremely well. There are a few patterns working.

First of all, there are a lot of fish shallow. I would say 8’ to 16’ is the range with 10’ being the prime depth. A storm wiggle wart in crawdad patterns is working well early or on windy days. Both rock and gravel points are working well. Also a 3/8 oz and ½ oz green pumpkin jig tipped with a chompers green pumpkin candy twin tail or a yum papi craw in green pumpkin is doing well for these feeding bass of Table Rock Lake. Swimming the jig along the bottom slow and stroking the jig are the best retrieves.
Second, we are catching lots of big smallmouth and football spotted bass in the 35’ to 45’ depth range on the bottom and suspended. A green pumpkin orange colored chompers football jig tipped with a paca chunk in watermelon candy snapped of the bottom in these depths are taking lots of fish. There are also a lot of fish being caught on chompers watermelon/red, and brn/purple drop shot worms as well. A lot of the bigger spotted bass are in and around deep tree tops.
Lastly we are catching a few fish on cloudy days and early on shad colored zara spooks and red fins on timbered points. Not a lot of fish, but we have caught some bass in the 3 - 5lb range this week.

Summer fishing here on Table Rock Lake in Branson, Missouri is in full swing. Each day is different and seems to require relocating schools of biting fish. From the dam to the mid lake area, the best bite has been drop shotting chompers worms in watermelon/red and brown/purple combos, and live night crawlers. Early fishing near the bottom on main lake gravel structure 26’ to 35’ is taking some fish. As the day goes on, fishing tree tops on main lake drops, humps, and bluff ends are taking the bigger bass. Also early in the back of the bigger creeks there is a shallow bite for bass using spit in images and pop r style baits. The James is hit or miss and mostly a miss. From Campbell point to eagle rock the bass are schooling early and can be caught using pop r and super spook jr style baits. The next bite in this area is a ½ oz football jig in green pumpkin tipped with zoom speed craws. The best depth is 18’ to 28’ for most fish. Drop shotting live crawlers is taking a large number of spotted bass 28’ to 35’ deep suspended and on the bottom on main lake humps and gravel flats on this area.

Also war eagle ½ oz screaming eagle and regular double willow 3/8 oz spinnerbaits in mouse and blue heron colors are working well. The key is to fish main lake and secondary points as well as pockets with timber. Timber is a must. The fish are 8 to 15 feet deep. This week we caught some fish around cedars on a super spook jr in flitter shad and flipped a chompers jig in and around cedar trees with great results as well. There is still a really dood dock bite for kentuckys and smallmouths. In front of the docks we have been drop shotting chompers plum and watermelon red dropshot worms and in the stalls we have been flipping pig sticker Ό oz brown jigs tipped with chompers craw trailers. The best jig docks are those on flat gravel. Had some real pretty smallmouth this week. Until next week, be safe and good fishing.

TABLE ROCK LAKE FISHING REPORT


LAKE LEVEL: 914.92 WATER TEMP: MAIN LAKE – 78 degrees clear to stained

Well the fishing has really picked up this week. There is an awesome top water bite using Zara spooks and chug bugs around standing timber on secondary points and pockets in the bigger creeks. Look for shad. Small crank baits are also working in these same areas. Shad patterns are the ticket. If the wind blows mouse colored war eagle spinner baits are taking some nice bass as well. Drop shotting chompers drop shot worms in watermelon candy, watermelon red, and plum colors in 18’ to 25’ on gravel points and flats are best bet for numbers. Fishing for suspended fish 25’ over 33’ to 38’ is working as well. Spooning deep docks with war eagle ½ oz spoons has been good for fish suspended in and around these docks. There are some smallmouth starting to show up in their fall haunts, and the bite will just continue to get better as the days go on. Pig sticker 5/8 oz football jigs in peanut butter and jelly colors tipped with green pumpkin twin tails have been working early on main lake and secondary points 15’ to 30’ deep. The river bite has been slow. Until next week, be safe and good fishing.

The fishing on Table Rock Lake currently is good, but best early or on overcast days. Look for bass on long gravel points (main lake and secondary) and on main lake gravel flats. The best bite is 15’ – 25’ deep in these areas.

The river bite has really heated up and the good ones are biting. The areas to fish are bluff ends, main river ledges, and points. Typical summertime bass haunts. The key baits to throw are shad colored fat free shad and norman dd22 crankbaits on 10 lb test, Carolina rigged watermelon candy and green pumpkin brush hogs, red bud and plum 10” worms on 3/8 oz weights, and my favorite - Pigsticker football jigs in 5/8 oz and Ύ oz.
