Check our web sites: focusedfishing.com bransonfishingtv.com bransonbassfishingguide.com troutofmymind.com guidefishingbranson.com Table Rock Lake Lake Level: 913.22 Water Temp: 79 – 86 By: Branson Fishing Guide Service | Focused Fishing Guide Service Check out our new site: bransonfishingtv.com Branson: Fishing guides are scanning the surface every morning watching for surfacing fish, there is a good topwater bite early and late mostly on smaller baits like Pop-R’s and Spook Jr. Look for with cover close to deep water to be the most productive. Once the sun rises drop shot rigs dominate the lower end of the lake; Tightlines UV finesse worms, Chompers drops shot worms and ROBO worms continue to produce in deep tree tops close to channel bends and on drop offs. Most of the fish are still coming from 35’ – 55’ deep and will hold tighter to the tree as the sun rises. Kimberling City: The topwater bite is very strong early and late here just like in Branson, fishing guides are using POP-R’s and Spook Jr’s to target surfacing fish on main lake points and around larger community docks. Watch for surface activity to find the best locations. As the sun comes up a combination of drop shot rigs and Jewel football jigs have been effective on main lake and secondary points where deep brush and rock piles are present. Look for cover 25’ deep or deeper to hold most of the fish. James River: The shallow bite continues to be the deal up the James River, Branson fishing guides have been using a combination of big worms and Jewel Magnum jigs in and around shallow wood cover. Laydowns and brush have been the best targets, look for cover 12’ deep or less to hold better fish. Jewel football jigs and Carolina rigged brush hogs have also been very effective on main lake “roll off” style points. Look for gravel points that have a pronounced drop on one side or the other to be the most productive locations. White River: Topwater, drop shot rigs and Jewel football jigs are all effective on the White River. In addition Branson fishing guides have found a couple of different patterns; Big Swimbaits have been effective cast over deep trees and brush, cast the bait out and let it sink to just above the cover and retrieve with a slow steady retrieve. Both hard and soft swimbaits are working as long as you swim the bait just above the cover. Jewel Pro spider jigs and Squirrel heads have been effective around shallow docks. Look for docks on gravel and target areas from 3’ – 15’ deep concentrating on shady areas. bransonfishingtv.com bransonbassfishingguide.com troutofmymind.com guidefishingbranson.com

chances of rain tomorrow and possibly Saturday. Temperatures in the low 90s through the weekend. Next week looks like mid to upper 90s. Slight chances for rain Tuesday. Basically, no change in generation pattern. Off in the a.m. Two units on by 1:00 p.m. and all four by 2:00 p.m. for about seven hours. Stan out last Wednesday with Glenn and Mel from the St. Louis area. Good days for these guys on the P&P in the a.m. and then the crackleback when the water can on. We emptied the stable Thursday for a group from Arkansas. They were holding a meeting at the Chateau and got to enjoy in between meetings. For the most part, all were new fly fishers with just a few who had thrown a rod before. Stan had Warren & Donna. I think it was Donna who brought in a 15″ rainbow. Jason and Heather were with Jim and they brought in a 17″ rainbow. Carolyn took Carol and Ed. This was Carol’s first experience fly fishing and she brought in a 15-3/4″ rainbow. Darrell had John and Cliff, and Dana took Mike and Jack. Steve and Mark were wading with Gina. Of course, they had their contests going for the most fish, the biggest, etc. It was a win-win day for everyone as it turned out to be a nice day….not too hot yet. They were not in a meeting! and most were have a new experience learning how to fly fish! Overall, the best patterns were the JQ streamer, P&P midge, black copperhead midge, b-bug and a root beer midge. Tuesday, Jim, Gina and Carolyn had the opportunity to take a group of veterans with Project Healing Waters out for the day. Jim and Darrell also had them out again on Wednesday. We thank each of you for what you have done or are still doing. We hope you had as much fun as we did!! Almost forgot, Darrell has Jerry and Gail from Texas out Tuesday. They had a good morning on a size 14 brown San Juan worm
