Focused Fishing Guide Service a Full time Professional Branson Missouri Fishing Guide Service on Beautiful Table Rock Lake and Taneycomo Lake for Bass, Crappie, White Bass, Pan Fish, and Year round on Taneycomo Lake in Branson Missouri for Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. Check our web sites: focusedfishing.com bransonfishingtv.com bransonbassfishingguide.com troutofmymind.com guidefishingbranson.com Table Rock Lake Lake Level: 915.94 Water Temp: 46 – 55 By: Branson Fishing Guide Service | Focused Fishing Guide Service Check out our new site: bransonfishingtv.com Branson: Fishing guides continue to see improvement in the Dam area of the lake, rising water levels and temperatures have fish moving shallower on to secondary points and toward spawning areas. Stickbaits and wiggle warts continue to produce on the lower end but a few other baits have been producing as well. XPS single tail grubs fished on secondary and main lake points have been putting fish in the boat particularly on windy days. Smoke, salt and pepper and milky salt and pepper have been effective on a ¼ oz. head. Split shot rigged UV finesse worms and French fries have also been working, drag them slowly along the bottom to draw strikes. Kimberling City: Just like in Branson fishing guides have seen a dramatic improvement in the mid lake area. Stickbaits while still effective have not been the best option, wiggle warts and Bandit 300’s are working well on 45 degree chunk rock in the larger creek arms and Jewel Pro Spider jigs have been very effective on secondary points. Look for fish to be staged and moving up to spawn; secondary points in the mouths of spawning pockets have been key areas. Cast Jewel spider jigs and split shot rigs toward the bank and work out to 15’ deep to catch staging fish. James River: Despite the cold front that came in over the weekend the bite up the James River has is still improving. The best baits have been a combination of Wiggle Warts and Jewel jigs targeting staging fish moving from deep to shallow water. Look for 45 degree chunk rock and mixed rock, ledge and gravel banks and points to be the most productive areas. The stained water of the James has fish holding very shallow, don’t overlook water less than 3’ deep as it has been holding better fish. The best areas have been transition areas when rock or ledges break down to gravel and large rocks are mixed into smaller rock or gravel. Branson fishing guides work these areas thoroughly with a Jewel jig paying close attention to any shady spots. White River: The White River is still producing some great days of fishing; Wiggle Warts, Jewel Jigs, split shot rigs and grubs are all producing both numbers and quality from Baxter to above Shell Knob. Steeper banks have been the most productive with a Wiggle Wart, 45 degree channel swing type banks will produce both numbers and size, pay close attention to the ends of the swings where rock changes size and breaks down to gravel. Jewel jigs have been effective in these same areas but use them on secondary points near spawning coves as well; cast to the bank and work along the bottom to 15’ deep. The same pattern has been producing with a split shot rig for Branson fishing guides; rig the split shot with UV finesse worms, French fries or UV hogs to draw strikes. On windy days swim XPS single tail grubs on windy gravel points to put a mixed bag in the boat. . bransonfishingtv.com bransonbassfishingguide.com troutofmymind.com guidefishingbranson.com

The best bite has been on a combination of wiggle warts and stickbaits. Look for fish to be in transition areas where channel swing rock banks lead to points near spawning pockets. Brown and green crawdad patterns have been best on a wart, make casts more or less parallel to the bank maintaining bottom contact throughout the retrieve. Stick baits have been more effective closer to secondary points near spawning pockets, work the bait fairly fast to draw a reaction strike. Kimberling City: Much like in Branson fishing guides have been doing well in the mid lake with wiggle warts and stickbaits. Add to that a solid jig bite and the fishing has improved tremendously over the past two weeks. Jewel Pro Spider jigs in Okeechobee blue or PB&J have been the best colors match them with either a finesse craw or a J Tail trailer and work rocky transitions near spawning pockets. James River: The water has warmed significantly over the past week with an influx of run off, higher air temperatures and longer days. All of which has Branson fishing guides targeting fish shallow from Aunts creek to Cape Fair. Most of the fish are coming on wiggle warts, stickbaits and Jewel Pro Spider jigs but a few have been caught on Carolina rigged UV hogs and UV Enkos on points leading into spawning pockets. This bite will improve as the water warms and fish stage up even more. White River: The White River continues to produce both quantity and quality; much like the rest of the lake wiggle warts, stickbaits and Jewel jigs have been very productive throughout the White River. In addition Branson fishing guides have caught several fish have been caught on split shot rigs over the past week, French fries, UV Finesse worms and UV Craws have all been working on a split shot. Look for points leading into spawning areas and work the rig slowly along the bottom from 3’ - 15’ deep. . bransonfishingtv.com bransonbassfishingguide.com troutofmymind.com guidefishingbranson.com
