Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 6/3/11

Posted on June 3, 2011 by admin

The water temperatures have finally warmed up. We are in the mid 70s now and climbing with this little heat wave we are in. For the most part the spawn is over and the fish are hungry and feeding. The water is dropping and the lake has some good current in it. The fish are still hanging by the original shoreline which is now 13 feet deep all the way out to 35 feet deep. Shaky heads,carolina rigs,and tubes are all working very good. Any combination of green seems to be the best. The fish I have been catching have been feeding on shad,crawdads and bluegill. The water is not as clear as normal with visibilities ranging from 2 feet down to 5 feet depending what part of the lake your on. There is a topwater bite still going on first thing in the morning. If you have clouds,the top water bite will last longer then if you have sun. Once the sun hits the water real strong the fish will move down or suspend. The drop shot bite is starting to pick up also and the white bass are starting to show up in schools. It shouldn't be too much longer and the white bass fishing ought to be good. We have also been catching some big bluegill out in the 30 foot range on night crawlers. 3 years ago when the water was real high we had some good BIG bluegill fishing. I see the same trend happening this year. The fishing seems to be good, early mid day and late. So if you can stand the heat the fishing can be good throughout the day. Boat traffic is way down as I think a lot of people are still afraid of the high water. A little common sense goes a long way.

Good Fishin'
