Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 6/9/11

Posted on June 9, 2011 by admin

Talk about a crazy year. The lake is still 11 1/2 feet above normal pool and slowly dropping now that the flood gates are closed. The water temps have jumped 18 degrees in two weeks and is now topping out at 85 degrees in the afternoons. With the slow down in current the fishing is changing again. The morning topwater bite is still going in certain areas. White Bass , Smallmouth Bass and Kentucky Bass are hitting spooks and redfins for the first hour and a half of light. After the sun gets on the water real good the fish move out and some are hanging on the bottom while others are starting to suspend. The fish that are hanging around the original shoreline have seemed to have shrunk a little. With the warmer water temps I believe the bigger fish are moving toward their summer hangouts. Not saying they can't be caught shallow but the deep bite is starting to come on strong. On Table Rock summertime means nightcrawler time and the crawler bite has started. It wont be long and the deep trees will start holding the football size Kentuckies we all like to catch.Untill next time Good Fishin' Jamie
