Table Rock Lake Fishing Report April 13, 2017


Table Rock Lake level is 912.5 which is about two and a half feet below power pool. The water temperature is right around 60 degrees. The first wave of fish have moved up and are on the spawning beds. I like to leave these fish alone as we need them to have a successful spawn. With the water level being low, chances are our survival rate for the fry will be low also, so please practice catch and release so those fish can have every opportunity to have a successful spawn. You can catch fish right now just about anywhere you fish. We are catching fish on the main lake points and gravel flats with a carolina rigged centepedes and swimming 5 inch grubs or small swimbaits. On windy days we have been catching some on a spinnerbait. If it gets tough for you, just tie on a ned rig and you should be able to catch some fish dragging that around in 12 to 15 feet of water. White bass and a few Crappie are starting to show up in the back of some of the bigger creeks. we have been catching them on small crankbaits. The fish are up and fishing is good on Table Rock Lake, so if your interested in getting in on the action, just give me a call to set up a fishing trip.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report March 21 2017

Table Rock Lake is 8 feet below power pool. The water temperature is in the low 50s. With the water warming up, we have a lot of fish moving up shallow. We have been catching a lot of Smallmouth, Kentucky and Largemouth Bass from the bank down to 15 feet. The best baits for us have been a five inch curly tail grub or a 4 inch swim bait fished on a 1/4 ounce jig head. We have been catching them from the mainlake points and banks with mixed gravel and chunk rock all the way to the backs of coves and pockets that have some ledge and chunk rock. I believe the fish in the coves are starting to stage for the spawn and our next full moon if not this upcoming new moon will have a wave of spawning fish move up. We have also been catching some nice fish on jerkbaits and crankbaits on the windy banks and points. We’ve also been catching a few bonus Crappie on the grubs and swimbaits.

Table Rock Lake is almost 3 feet below normal pool.  The water temperature is in the mid 80s.  The Bass fishing remains to be very good with the majority of our fish coming deep on nightcrawlers.  The fish have started to relate to the bottom and are eating crawdads.  You can catch them early on a football head jig or a shakeyhead working them in 15 to 30 feet deep on the mainlake points.  Once the sun gets up it’s better to change up to a dropshot rig and work the points in the 25 to 30 foot range.  If this bite slows just move out over deeper water and look for the fish suspended in the same range over 50 feet of water.  We have been catching a lot of big bluegill in the 25 to 30 foot range on the points also.  With the Labor Day Weekend upon us remember to get out early and leave the lake to the pleasure boaters in the afternoon.

Table Rock Lake is about a foot and a half above normal pool. The water temperature is in the mid 80s. Water clarity is still a little stained but a lot better than in the Spring. For the most part, we are catching most of our fish deep. There is a little top water happening so you want to keep a top water bait handy. They don’t stay up long so you have to get there when they are chasing. We are catching most of our fish on nightcrawlers around 30 feet deep. The best bite has been for suspended fish hanging around the deep trees. Once you find them and get one to bite, it gets the school fired up and you can catch multiple fish before they scatter. Once they stop biting just move on and let them settle down for awhile, you can go back later and catch a few more from the same school. Fishing has been excellent with 25 to 50 fish for a 4 hour trip. If your interested in getting in on some fun fishing on Table Rock Lake, give me a call to set up a trip.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report June 17, 2016

Table Rock Lake is a foot and a half above normal and visibility is about 5 feet. The water temperatures are in the low to mid 80s. The Bass fishing has been good to excellent with the majority of the fish being caught being Kentucky Spotted Bass. You can still catch some fish shallow first thing in the morning but as the sun gets up that bite dies off and you have to go deep. The top water bite has died off and I think that is due to the stained water. You want to keep a top water bait handy as there are some blow ups happening throughout the day but you need to get to them quick as they are not staying up long. We have been catching some Smallmouth Bass early up shallow on a Carolina rigged green pumpkin centipede. That bite lasts for about an hour, then we are going deep with night crawlers to catch the Spotted Bass. The deep fish are hanging in the 25 to 35 foot range. You can find some on the gravel points but we have been doing best fishing over the deep tree tops. We have also been catching a few big bluegills down in the deeper water but have not really been fishing for them. The White Bass have been spotty but there are small schools of them swimming around the flats. Keep an eye on tour locator and when you see a school drop a white half ounce jigging spoon and you can catch a few before the school moves on. We are experiencing some awfully hot temperatures right now so make sure you get out early and drink plenty of water.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 25, 2016

Table Rock Lake is a foot above normal pool with water temps in the upper 60s to low 70s. The water is still stained around the Indian Point area with visibility around 4 feet. The spawn is winding down and a lot of the fish have moved out to the main lake. We are still catching some on Squarebill crankbaits and spinnerbaits in the pockets and coves. We are also catching a lot of Smallmouth throwing a Carolina rigged centipede on the mainlake. Each day seems to be different as the fish are continually on the move. You just need to keep moving and you will find some Bass that will be feeding. As the fish continue to recuperate from the spawn, the bite should get better and more predictable. There are fish that have moved out and are suspending over deep water. You can catch these with by dropshotting a 4 inch worm or nightcrawler. With the Holiday weekend approaching, remember to get out early and be careful with all the boat traffic.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report April 29 2016

Table Rock Lake is a half foot above power pool. The water temperature is in the mid 60s and the visibility is about 4 feet. The Smallmouth Bass have been the predominate fish we are catching so far this Spring. You can catch them on many different baits right now. We are catching them on the ned rig, shaky heads, jigs, Carolina rigs, spinnerbaits and crankbaits. They are anywhere from on the bank down to 20 feet deep. We are starting to catch some Spotted Bass but just not the numbers. Any day now, they ought to start showing up more. We are in all phases of the spawn right now, so you can catch them from the mainlake all the way to the back of the coves and pockets. The White Bass have yet to show up around the Indian Point area. The Google Eyes are starting to mix in with the smallmouth. Some days can be tough, so you just need to slow down and work an area thoroughly.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report March 22, 2016

Table Rock Lake is a few inches above normal and very stained. The heavy rains from December have really murked up the water and it is not clearing very fast. I talked with a diver last week and he told me the lake is murky from top to bottom. He said at a depth of 150 feet there is about 2 foot visibility. The water temperature for the most part is in the mid to upper 50s although with cold nights the temperature has gone down to the upper 4os. The Bass fishing is getting good. We have been catching them on suspending jerk baits, crank baits and swimming grubs. We have been catching them on main lake points, secondary points, chunk rock banks and even pea gravel. As you can see we are pretty much catching them everywhere although you don’t catch them everywhere. The key right now it to keep moving, fishing a little bit of everything. Once you catch a fish, you need to work the area, as we have been running into schools of fish that move in to feed then they back off. I’ve been checking for the white bass but they haven’t moved in yet. I think once the water temperature stabilizes, we should have some good white bass fishing around Indian Point.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report September 3, 2015

Table Rock Lake is 3 feet above normal pool and the water temperature is in the low 80s.  With the water clarity diminished, you can find fish just about anywhere from a foot of water down to 30 feet.  The thermocline did not develop until late summer and had set up fairly shallow at 20 feet.  Just recently did it start to move down toward the 30 foot range.  We have been caching fish with Spinner baits, Crank baits, Jigs, Tubes and drop shotting with night crawlers.  We have been catching fish on Main lake and Secondary Points, in the coves and pockets and suspended over deep water.  There seems to be fish just about anywhere you fish although there aren’t many spots where they a schooled up.  Once you find a school you can get into them pretty good.  The Smallmouth Bass have stuck around all summer and can still be caught on Main lake gravel points.  With the holiday weekend coming up, make sure you get out early as the boat traffic will be horrible in the afternoon.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 25 2015

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 aren’t everywhere so you have to keep moving and searching. Once you catch one, you can usually catch multiple fish from the same spot.
