Branson: Fishing guides have watched the Table Rock Lake levels rise to near record levels and the Corps of engineers control the situation dropping the lake to just below flood stage with a plan to drop the lake to normal winter level within a month barring another heavy rain fall. The fishing on the lower end has improve greatly over the past few days with water levels stabilized. The best bite on the lower end of the lake is from around Rice Camp to Old 86 Park, water in this portion of the lake is relatively clear and fish have been feeding deep. Look for shad to be close to the bottom 50’ – 80’deep with fish feeding above them in the larger creek arms. Jewel Scuba Spoons and Rapala Ice jigs have been the ticket; you’ll need to work fish for a while to get them to bite.

 

Kimberling City: The mid lake has a little more stain that in Branson. Fishing guides are still catching fish in the mid lake with a couple of patterns: The deep bite is strong in the larger creek arms with Jewel Scuba Spoons, Rapala Ice Jigs and Drop Shot rigs in and around schools of shad 40’ – 60’ deep. Most of the shad are holding tight to the bottom and fish will be holding tight to the bottom or just above the shad. Ripping a spoon off the bottom and allowing it to fall back into the shad will draw strikes. The high water has moved some fish shallow in the mid lake as well, most will be around the old bank line (15’ deep) but a few have been moving shallow into the flooded trees and brush. Finding shad or other bait fish in shallow water usually leads to finding fish shallow as well. Jewel Spider jigs and War Eagle Spinnerbaits have been effective around the flooded cover when bait is present.   

 

James River: Surprisingly the upper end of the James River has started to clear already. Areas above Cape Fair are stained but not as muddy as below the marina. Fish have been moving shallow when shad move up into flooded cover. Jewel Magnum Casting Jigs, Spider Jigs and War Eagle Spinnerbaits have been effective when fish are shallow. The normal bank line has been a little more productive; Jewel Football Jigs and Pro Sider jigs have been effective presentations. Steeper rocky banks are much more productive than gravel, look for rock ledge type banks and fish them more or less parallel with a jig to be successful.

 

White River: The White river is muddy to stained on the main lake channel, areas in Shell Knob below the confluence with the Kings River to Big Creek is muddy, above the Kings the water clears the further upstream you go. Below Baxter the water is stained and the major creek arms are relatively clear or stained. In the clear water the fishing has been better than in muddy water. The deep bite has been strong in the major creek arms; Jewel Scuba Spoons, Rapala Ice Jigs and Drop Shot rigs have all been effective from 45’ – 65’ deep in and around schools of shad. Most of the shad are holding close to the bottom but occasionally you will find bait up off the bottom. Jewel football and Pro Spider Jigs have been effective close to the old bank line on steeper rocky banks, fish the jigs more or less parallel to the old bank line to draw strikes.

Branson: Fishing guides have seen a couple of solid bites develop on the lower end of the lake over that past week. There is a great deep bite on Jewel Scuba Spoons and Rapala Ice Jigs on gravel flats that drop into deep water and in the middle of creek arms. Large gravel flats that roll off into deep water have been holding schools of spotted bass close to the bottom 35’ – 50’ deep, watch your electronics for any fish on the bottom, once one is hooked the bottom will explode with fish. IN creek arms look for shad to be following schools of shad and holding in tree tops 30- 50’ deep. The overall depth isn’t a factor, the depth of shad and tree tops will determine where the fish are located.

 

Kimberling City: The mid lake has a strong shallow bite and a very good deep bite just like Branson. Fishing guides have been using Storm Wiggle Warts and SPRO Rock Crawlers on steeper rocky banks to target fish less than 10’ deep. Work banks more or less parallel banging the crankbait into rocks and other cover that is holding fish waiting to ambush crayfish and other prey. Jewel Pro Spider jigs have been effective around boat docks as well; look for docks on rocky points and banks to be holding most of the fish and work from the bank out to 15’ to be effective. Jewel Scuba spoons have been working in the mid lake just like on the lower end.

 

James River: Some of the best shallow fishing on the lake is in the James River. Branson fishing guides have been targeting fish with a combination of War Eagle Spinnerbaits, Wiggle Warts and Jewel Magnum Casting Jigs. Spinnerbaits have been most effective on windy days around standing timber and laydowns, cast beyond the cover and pause it for a second next to the timber to draw strikes. Wiggle Warts cast parallel on 45 degree rocky banks have been producing as well, run the bait from the bank to about eight feet deep to be effective. Just about any piece of cover less than 10’ deep will produce with a Jewel Magnum Casting jig; laydowns, stump rows, flooded bushes and docks are producing numbers and quality fish in Okeechobee Blue and green pumpkin candy.

 

White River: Deep or shallow the White River has been a blast for Branson fishing guides to fish over the past week. Deep fish are hitting Jewel Scuba spoons and Rapala Ice Jigs in and around schools of shad 30 – 50’ deep. War Eagle spinnerbaits run past standing cedar trees on windy days will produce vicious strikes for bass waiting to ambush baitfish. Wiggle warts ad Rock Crawlers have been very effective on steeper rocky banks when fished from 3’ – 8’ deep. Jewel Pro Spider jigs worked in the shade of boat docks on rocky points and banks have been producing some very nice keepers.

Branson: Fishing guides have been watching the lake level rise and water temperatures drop over the past week. Fish are still moving slowly into a normal fall patterns; Jewel Finesse Football jigs, Squirrel Heads and Magnum Shakey Heads have all been effective on mixed rock and gravel points throughout the lower end. Most fish will be between 10’ – 15’ deep holding close to the bottom. Jewel Scuba Spoons are starting to work as well, look for schools of spotted bass to be close to the bottom from 25’ – 35’ deep on gravel flats near deep water.

 

Kimberling City: The topwater bite has begun to slow in the mid lake just like in Branson. Fishing guides have started concentrating on fish holding tight to the bottom with Jewel Finesse football jigs and Magnum Shakey heads. Green pumpkin candy and PB&J have been the best colors on a 3/8 oz. & ½ oz. football jigs match either with a green pumpkin Jewel J Tail trailer. Match the Magnum Shakey with a bigger bait to draw more strikes; Zoom speed craws, Tightlines UV Enko and UV Beavers have all been great choices.

 

James River: Still a great shallow bite up the James River. Branson fishing guides have been targeting shallow fish around wood cover with Jewel Magnum Casting Jigs, War Eagle Spinnerbaits and RC Square Bill crankbaits. Look for laydowns, stumps and flooded brush to be holding most of the fish. Crappie have started to show up on bluff banks around Cape Fair, white marabou jigs, Bobby Garland Baby Shad and 2” grubs have been effective around standing timber 10’ – 18’ deep over deeper water.  

 

White River: The White River continues to be a great area of the lake to fish; shallow or deep fish are being caught from Baxter to Eagle Rock. Early in the day a topwater is still an effective tool; Whopper Ploppers, spooks and Pop-R’s have all been effective around standing timber on steeper banks. Mixed rock and gravel main lake and secondary points are holding smallmouth and largemouth; Jewel Finesse Football Jigs and Magnum Shakey heads have been the ticket from 5’ – 18’ deep. Schools of spotted bass can be found on gravel flats and flat points 25’ – 35’ deep near deeper water. Jewel Scuba spoons and Rapala Ice Jigs worked just off the bottom.
