Table Rock Lake Fishing Report May 25, 2016

Bills smallieken
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.

Till next time Good fishin’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report April 29 2016

nice catchriley's smallmouth
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.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report July 3 2015

ken nice spot nice spot 1

Table Rock Lake fishing is real good right now. You may have to hop around a little as they seem to be doing something different each day but when you find them you can catch a bunch in one area. We haven’t been back in the creeks lately but I bet you can catch some there. We’ve been concentrating on main lake points, flats and deep trees. It seems the shallow fish are mainly smaller fish and the deeper you go the bigger they get. Drop shotting night crawlers have been the best for us. the fish seem to be anywhere from 25 feet down to 45 feet. You just need to keep your eye on your electronics and see what depth they are using. If we can get our lake levels to normal and the generation down to a minimum, we will develop a thermocline and the depth will be a little more predictable. For now you just need to keep moving until you locate some feeding fish. With the holiday weekend upon us, you need to get out early and let the pleasure boaters have the lake in the afternoon. Stay safe out there.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report June 12 2015

Table Rock Lake fishing remains good as we are approaching Summer. The Lake level is around 917 and the water temps are hovering around the 80 degree mark. While there are still some fish up shallow, there seems to be more and more heading out to their summer haunts. There is still a top water bite going on but it seems to be a little more sporadic. Always have a top water handy as you never know when some Bass or White Bass will push some shad to the top. We’ve been doing better on deep trees with night crawlers but they seem to be moving around a little as they are not quite locked in on their summer patterns yet. We are also catching some on the bottom in 25-35 foot of water but then again they seem to be moving some also. As soon as we can get our lakes down to normal pool and they quit moving water through from Beaver Lake, we should start to see a more predictable summer pattern develop. For now you just have to keep moving and looking with your electronics for the fish. You can also catch some good fish dragging a shaky head or jig on the points in the 15 to 25 foot range. Now is a good time to fish Table Rock so if your interested in a fishing trip, give me a call.

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 5/21/15

Table Rock Lake is about 2 feet above normal pool.  The water temps are hovering around 68 to 69 degrees around the Dam area.  The majority of the fish are now done with the spawn.  You can still catch fish from the back of the pockets all the way out to the mainlake.  A lot of the shallow fish in the pockets and coves are  guarding fry.  The fish on the mainlake are starting to make their way a little deeper.  Early in the morning they are coming up shallow and you can catch them on top water and as the sun gets up they start dropping deeper. You can catch them from 15 to 30 feet deep when the sun is up high.  It just depends on cloud cover and wind.  On certain days you can find some good topwater action about 3/4 of the way back in of some of the deeper creeks.  These fish will be a mix of Largemouth, Kentuckies and White Bass.  With the Holiday this weekend, remember to get out early and give the lake to the pleasure boaters in the afternoon.  If we get the rain they are calling for you should be able to stay out and catch some nice fish on topwater.

Until next time   GOOD FISHIN’

Table Rock Lake Fishing Report April 18 2015

A nice Table Rock Lake Smallmouth

Dillon with a nice Smallie

Table Rock Lake is at normal pool and the fishing is Fantastic.  With the water temps in the low 60s  the fish have moved up shallow all over the lake.  We have a lot of fish on the spawning beds right now and I foresee another wave moving up with the next full moon.  You can catch fish on just about anything you want to throw.  We have been doing best on Shaky heads rigged with a green pumpkin finesse worm.  The fish are anywhere from the main lake to the backs of the creeks and coves.  The White Bass have shown up in the backs of the major creeks around the Dam. You can catch them on jerk baits and arigs or just about any minnow imitating lure.  You just need to keep moving to find the schools and once you find then you can catch a bunch in a hurry.  This is the time of year we really need to release the Bass as they are in the spawning stage and we need them to have a successful spawn so we can continue to enjoy the great fishing Table Rock Lake has to offer.  If your interested in a guided fishing trip just drop me a line

Till next time   Good Fishin’

Spring has finally arrived and the water temperature on Table Rock Lake is finally on the rise.  With water temps in the low to mid 50s the fish have started moving up into the shallows.  Each day we seem to see more and more fish moving up to get ready for the spawn.  You can catch fish on just about anything you like to throw. We have been catching them on Crankbaits, Spinnerbaits, Jigs, Arigs, Horsehead jigs, Grubs and small Swimbaits.  You can find fish on mainlake points and all the way to the back of the creeks and coves.  You just need to put the trolling motor down and go to casting.  Crappie have been moving into the docks and up the rivers.  White Bass have been moving up the creeks and rivers and are starting to show up in the larger creeks around the Damn area.  Now is a great time to be on Table Rock Lake fishing as the weather is warm and the fishing is getting hot. Give me a call if you would like to set up a trip.

Till next time     Good Fishin’
