Fishing is good on Table Rock Lake
This has been a crazy Spring on Table Rock Lake. The water temperature is in the mid to upper 50s and the lake level is a few inches above normal. We should be nearing a full out post spawn bite but a lot of the fish are just moving in to spawn. Hopefully the air temperature will stablize and these fish can get back on schedule. The fishing is about as good as it gets on Table Rock Lake. The fish are up shallow and you can catch them on a variety of baits. The water is as clear as it was in the 80s. You can see the bottom in 20 to 25 feet of water so you want to stay back as far as you can and make long casts. We are catching them on Shakey heads, Grubs, Jerkbaits. Crankbaits, Tubes, Carolina rigged Centepedes, Jigs, and Texas rigged Lizards. The depth seems to change for the weather conditions. One day you will catch them 12 to 18 feet deep while others you’ll catch them 15 to 25 feet deep. If the wind is blowing you can even catch them up on the banks.
We have also been catching some White Bass and Crappie in the backs of some of the major creeks on Jerkbaits. No report on the Big Bluegill as of now.
As always during spawning season, try to let the females go so they can spawn and only keep the males if your looking for a fish fry.
If your interested in getting in on some good Table Rock Lake Fishing, just give me a call to set up a guided fishing trip.
Till next time Good Fishin’
