Nice Weather for December! Sunday, December 14th, 2014
The past two days were wonderful. 60x yesterday and again today. However, as we know, all good things must come to an end. Tomorrow doesnt look too bad as it will be in the upper 50x and partly sunny. Tuesday and Wednesday are projected in the mid 40s and by Thursday, upper 30s with chances for moisture. Saturday might even see a few snow showers in the a.m. But, back into the 40s by Sunday and into early next week
Generation has been all over the board the past few days. Last Tuesday and Wednesday, it was on in the morning, then off late morning so it was dropping out most of the day. Since Thursday, we have had generation non-stop. Today is wadeable, but it was a bit high (at least for me) yesterday.
Jim on the water last Tuesday with Derek from Illinois. Despite the crazy water, they had a very good day on the JQ streamer, black midge and hot hares ear nymph.
Derek hit the water with Jim again on Wednesday. Not as good as Tuesday, but certainly another good day on the black midge and hot hares ear nymph.
What was supposed to be the warmer day of the week last Thursday turned out to be cold, overcast and two units running. Pat from California (weather shock for him) spend half a day on the water with Stan. Slow start, but they finally got into some fish and pulled off a good day on the big ruby and copperhead midge. Also caught several on an egg pattern.

The Fishing on Table Rock is as good as we’ve seen it in 10 years. Now is the time to come experience some of the best deep water fishing in the country!
Branson: Fishing guides continue to have two distinct patterns on the lower end of the lake. The deep bite is phenomenal right now, both numbers of fish and quality. Deep trees on secondary points in the larger creek arms have been the best areas, fish have been suspending from 35’ – 55’ deep over as much as 120’, look for trees on the sides of points to be the most productive areas. Jewel spoons and Rapala Ice Jigs have been the best baits fished vertically above the schools of fish. Shallow anglers are doing well with stickbaits; Megabass Vision 110’s and SPRO McSticks have been the baits of choice on ledge rock banks on both the main lake and in the creek arms.
Kimberling City: The shallow bite is a little stronger in the Kimberling City area. Branson fishing guides are using stickbaits on ledge rock banks from 5’ – 18’ deep allowing them to suspend for 5 – 15 seconds between pauses to draw strikes. Larger community docks are holding fish as well; look for docks with at least 20 slips preferably on points and pitch Jewel Pro Spider Jigs to the center walkway from 5’ – 25’ deep. Make sure to feed line to the jig as it is falling as many of the fish will be right below the walkway.
James River: The biggest news in James River has been the crappie bite. Branson fishing guides have been catching both numbers and quality over the past week from Campers Point to Flat Creek. Look for brush piles 15’ – 25’ deep on steeper banks to be holding the bulk of the fish. Bobby garland Baby Shad on 1/16 oz. heads have been the best bait, cast beyond the brush pile and allow it to fall just deep enough to “tick” the top of the brush to draw strikes. The same shallow bites working in Kimberling City and Branson are working in the James. A combination of stickbaits and Jewel Pro Spider Jigs is all you need to put fish in the boat.
White River: Just like the rest of the lake Branson fishing guides have been doing very well on the White River fishing shallow and deep. The Shallow bite is a combination of stickbaits, Jewel jigs and Umbrella rigs. The stickbait and jig bite is mostly on ledge banks and points throughout the lake. The Umbrella rig bite has been best on main lake points with a steep drop or ledge on one side or the other. Most of the fish have been caught working the rig close to the bottom and allowing it to follow the contour of the bottom off the ledge or drop. Most of the bites will come as the bait it falling off the drop. The deep bite is in deep trees from 35’ – 55’ deep over as much as 100’. Jewel spoons and Rapala Ice Jigs have been the key baits here as well.
