Branson: Fishing guides continue to find the lower end of the lake a little tougher than the rest of the lake. Most fish being caught in the dam area have been on three presentations; Drop shot rigs, spoons and football jigs. Most of the fish ae coming relatively shallow, less than 25’ deep on gravel points and around large commercial boat docks. Tightlines UV finesse worms and Chompers drop shot worms have been the best offerings on a drop shot worked tight to the bottom on gravel points and suspended around large docks. These same locations will produce with a Jewel 3/8 oz. finesse football jig in green pumpkin candy with a green pumpkin J Tail trailer; work the jig from 10’ – 25’ deep on gravel points. Jewel Scuba spoons have been effective around large docks as well; pitch and cast to shady areas to draw strikes from suspended bass.   

 

Kimberling City: The mid lake has been much more productive this week than Branson. Fishing guides have been targeting fish less than 20’ deep on main lake and secondary gravel points with a combination of Jewel jigs, tubes and drop shot rigs. Jewel Pro Spider jigs in green pumpkin candy and Okeechobee craw or 3/8 oz. finesse football jigs matched with green pumpkin J Tail trailers have been the most effective presentations. On cloudy days the fish will be less than 15’ deep and on sunny days they will be closer to 20’. Bass Pro Shops Tender tubes in Puke and Green Pumpkin have been effective as well, fish them slowly along the bottom from 10’ – 25’ deep. Drop shot rigs with UV finesse worms or Chompers drop shot worms worked tight to the bottom from 18’ – 25’ deep will produce as well.

 

James River: The shallow bite is very strong up the James River. Branson fishing guides have been targeting fish less than 15’ deep for most of the last week. Jewel Jigs, Bass Pro Tubes, Crankbaits, Buzzbaits and even Frogs have been effective. Gravel points on the main lake and in the larger creek arms have been the best locations to throw Jewel Spider Jigs and Bass Pro tube; look for the fish to be less than 10’ deep early and moving deeper as the sun comes up. Deep diving crankbaits are producing as well; Strikes King 6XD and Rapala DT16 baits have been producing larger fish on isolated rock piles and brush piles close to points. Shallow flooded grass and bushes have been producing on Buzzbaits and frogs especially with a little wind or cloudy cover; fish are moving shallower than 5’ deep when it’s windy or cloudy.  

 

White River: The White River is still the most productive end of the lake, Branson fishing guides are catching fish less than 20’ deep from Baxter to above Eagle Rock and even shallower in the Kings River. Jewel Pro Spider jigs and 3/8 oz. Finesse football jigs with J Tail trailers have been the deal on gravel points on the main lake and in larger creek arms from 10’ – 18’ deep from Baxter to Campbell Point. Further upstream you will find fish as shallow as 5’ deep on the same gravel points. In the Kings River fish have been extremely shallow, 4’ deep or less, and can be caught by flipping bushes and throwing buzzbaits and frogs over top of the flooded cover.

Branson: Fishing guides are still doing best with drop shot rigs on the lower end. Long gravel points from 18’ to 25’ deep have been the best locations, look for fish to be holding tight to the bottom and drop Tightlines UV finesse worms, Chompers drop shot worms or Yamamoto cut tails. There have been a few fish starting to suspend over these points as well; Jewel Classic Spin-X and Dixie Jet Spoons have been working when fish are suspended. Cast either over the point, count it down to around 10’ and retrieve with a slow stop and go retrieve.  

 

Kimberling City: Still a stronger shallow bite in the mid lake than in Branson. Fishing guides have been doing well on gravel points and flats from 10’ – 20’ deep with Bass Pro Shops Tender Tubes in Puke and green pumpkin. Jewel Squirrel heads with Tightlines UV Beavers and Finesse worms or Jewel Pro Spider Jigs have been effective as well. Fish will move deeper as the sun comes up so start fishing around 10’ deep early and move out to 20’ deep by 10:00 am.

 

James River: The water is stained and most of the debris has settled in James. There is still a strong shallow bite from Aunts Creek on up to Cape Fair, look for fish to be holding tight to cover less than 10’ deep. Flipping and pitching bait have been the most effective; Jewel Finesse flippin’ jigs and Magnum Casting Jigs with Paca Chunk trailers, Texas rigged Tightline UV 10” worms and UV Hogs fished tight to cover have been producing numbers and big fish. Above Cape Fair there is a strong Deep Crankbait bite shaping up; Fat Free Shad and DD 22 fished on ledges and deep brush piles have been producing when your timing is right.     

 

White River: Branson fishing guides continue to love the White River; there is a strong shallow bite on pea gravel points and flats from Baxter to Eagle Rock. Look for fish to be less than 20’ deep and target them with Bass Pro Shops Tender Tubes, Jewel Spider Jigs and Squirrel Heads with Tightlines UV Finesse Worms and Beavers worked slowly along the bottom from the old bank line to 20’ deep. Better fish have been coming on Jewel 3/8 oz. Finesse Football jigs and J-Tail trailers in the same areas. You won’t get as many bites but the quality improves with the larger profile bait.

Table Rock Lake is about 12 foot above normal. The water temperature is in the mid 80s. The fishing remains good although the fish have moved up some with the high water. You can still catch some off the deep trees but not as many as before the rise in water. The key depths seem to be 18 to 25 feet deep. There are some fish in the flooded brush but we have been catching more in 18 to 25 range. With the water color you can get over these shallower fish and still drop shot to catch them. We have also been catching some on jigs, tubes and swimbaits. Because of the high water, we have still been catching some nice Smallmouth Bass. We are also catching some nice big Bream and some Walleye using crawlers on the points. The fish arent everywhere so you have to keep moving and searching. Once you catch one, you can usually catch multiple fish from the same spot.
