Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 22, 2017

 

 

 

Table Rock Lake is about 5 feet over normal pool.  The water temperature is  hanging around 90 degrees.  The fishing seems to change from day to day.  One day is real good and the next you seem to be scratching to catch them.  A good day is catching between 20 and 30 fish and a tougher day is between 15 and 20.  We are doing best splitshotting nightcrawlers in the 18 to 25 foot range.  I’m seeing some fish down deeper but cannot seem to get them to bite. They seem to be coming off the bottom and suspending in that 18 to 25 foot range.  My guess is that is probably where the thermocline is set up.  We are catching a lot of Kentucky Spotted Bass, Smallmouth Bass, a lot of BIG bluegill and an occasional Walleye.  If your brave enough to stay out until they start generating at the dam (which is usually in the afternoon) I would think they would start feeding real good off of the bottom.  Stay safe and stay hydrated.

Till next time    Good fishin’

Table Rock Lake is 8 foot over normal pool and slowly falling. The water temperature is 80 degrees with visibility of about 4 feet. The fishing is good to excellent. We are catching from 20 to 50 fish on a 4 hour trip. You can catch fish in the brush throwing a spinnerbait or pitching a creature bait around the brush. We have also been catching some good smallmouth out in front of the brush throwing a shakeyhead with a zoom trick worm. We have been catching the bigger numbers of fish splitshotting a night crawler in 25 to 30 feet of water. Keep an eye on your locator for baitfish. When you find the baitfish you find the bass. They are schooled up real good right now,so when you catch one,you usually can catch a bunch in the same area. We are also catching an occasional Whitebass and big Bluegills mixed in with the schools of bass. Get out early and be careful with all the boats out for the holiday weekend.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report June 14 2017

 

Table Rock Lake is 9 1/2 feet above normal.  The water temperature is in the upper 70s and the visibility is around 3 feet.  You can find fish from the flooded shoreline all the way out to 40 feet deep.  The best baits in the flo0oded brush has been a spinnerbait  and pitching soft plastics in the trees and bushes.  We have been catching Smallmouth Bass in front of the flooded brush out to 25 feet throwing grubs, jigs and Carolina rigged centipedes.  The Kentuckies have been hanging out in the deeper water. We have been doing best on them with night crawlers.  There are a lot of them tight to the bottom but also there are a lot of them suspended. You need to watch your graphs closely to find where they are holding.  We’ve also been catching some of the big bluegill out in 20 to 25 feet depth.  Once in a while you will see a school of White Bass feeding on shad.  If your lucky enough to be close when they come up, just throw a spoon, grub or spinnerbait into the activity.  Boat traffic is picking up so get out early and enjoy the peaceful morning on the lake.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 26 2017

Table Rock Lake is 13 feet above normal pool.  The water temperature is 70 degrees.  The fish are starting to feed good again after resting up from the spawn.  You can catch them on a variety of baits.  In the flooded brush, we are catching them on spinner baits, soft plastics pitched into the trees and also starting to get a few on a top water whopper plopper worked with a ripping motion through the brush. There are also fish working the bottom from the original shoreline out to 25 feet.  We are catching those fish on the ned rig, tubes and swimming a grub along the bottom.  Schools of white bass are starting to show up.  Keep an eye out for them surfacing feeding on schools of shad.  They don’t stay up long but you can follow them down and catch them on a jigging spoon or swimming a grub.  You can also get into areas of feeding rock bass.  We have been catching them on grubs and when you catch one there seems to be a lot more in the area.  Everybody stay safe out there as there are still a few floating logs.  Common sense and paying attention goes a long way.

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 Fishing Report September 1, 2016

20160823_072509_resized20160823_101223_resized
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 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.
