Branson: Fishing guides have continued to see fish on the move to spawning locations over the past week, while there are a few smaller buck males up shallow on beds most of the better fish are content to cruise the bank at this point. A couple of strong patterns have emerged over the past week; Bass Pro Shops XPS grubs continue to be an effective option and Ned rigs have started to produce as well. Both techniques have been best in and around spawning pockets; look for gravel pockets and points leading into them are target fish from 5’ – 15’ deep.
Kimberling City: Things are changing in the mid lake just like in Branson, fishing guides are seeing more fish guarding beds in the Kimberling City area but the spawn is not quite in full swing as of today. Ned rigs, Jewel Squirrel heads and split shot rigs are all very effective presentations. Again look for spawning pockets and the adjacent points to be the most productive areas and work the trio of baits from the bank out to 15’ deep to get bit.
James River: What seems like unending rain showers have kept the water in the James River stained to downright muddy in places. The dirty water has kept fish shallow, raised water temperatures and moved the spawn time table up in the river and the larger creek arms of the James. There are definitely more fish on beds here than in mid lake or Branson. Fishing guides have been doing well in and around spawning pockets despite some limited visibility. Look for shallow cover in these areas and pitch Bass Pro Shops Tender Tubes and Jewel Squirrel head finesse worm combos to draw strikes from fish guarding nests.
White River: The White River continues to have some of the best fishing on the lake. Branson fishing guides have been targeting fish moving up to spawn on shallow gravel points and pockets from Baxter to around Eagle Rock. Ned rigs, split shots and Bass Pro Tender Tubes have been your best options. Look for fish to be from the bank to around 12’ deep holding fairly deep on sunny days and moving shallower on windy or cloudy days. Further up into the Kings River the spawn is on in full swing; warmer water has males guarding beds in almost every spawning cove.

Did not get as much water this this last rain as we did with the earlier one. However, it did set us back a little as far as getting Table Rock Lake down to pool. Little sprinkles yesterday, but no more in sight for a few days. Maybe Thursday will bring some more rain.
What can I say. Maximum generation all day. There was a slight breaknot as much generationbefore this last rain, but that was short lived.
Several boats out Saturday. Jim had Steve, from Illinois out again. They had a good morning on the ruby with the hot hares ear dropper or stripping the JQ streamer. Al Wood from Michigan, spend the morning with Dana. They fished a size 20 hares ear and the ruby 2. Darrell and Stan had a group of young men who are attending college together and one of the guys father. Pretty much the first time fly fishing or even fishing! for all of them. Hope they dont think the water looks like this all the time! They did have a good time and even caught some fish. One was a nice 17 rainbow. Big ruby for Stans boat, and Darrell was using the big ruby with the rainbow warrior dropper.
Yesterday, in the damp, cloudy day, Gary and his son, Kale took half a day with Stan. Very good day for these guys. They regularly fish Taney, and were distraught they could not get on the water. No problem, into the boat and onto the fish. Big ruby, with ruby 2 or black midge dropper.
