Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 7/28/11

Posted on July 28, 2011 by admin

The lake is 2 feet above normal pool. The water temp is high 80s to low 90s. This heat wave is getting brutal. You better get out early because when the sun gets up high it is just miserable out there unless there is a breeze. The Bass fishing is changing. The deep fish have moved and I and a couple other of my guide buddies are having trouble finding them. It's just a matter of time till we figure them out again. I keep looking and trying things everyday. I can get some out of the deep trees but not the numbers that ought to be there. At first I thought maybe it was a full moon thing but that hasn't changed since the moon is now toward new moon. They have slowed the release of water from the dam so I believe this is what is affecting the movements. There is still a early morning jig bite going on but it doesn't last long unless there is some fog or cloud cover. We did have a very good morning when it was cloudy out. We ended up with a dozen good Bass with all 3 species involved. The next morning we had some fog for an hour and that kept the bite going. We had a 4 1/2 lb Largemouth and a solid 3 lb Smallmouth along with 6 other keepers.

After the Bass bite dies down we have been catching some Big bream out in 22-30 feet of water. It's not often you can catch these big bream consistently and have a good mess for a fish fry. With an ultralight rod you have your hands full fighting these bluegill that are pushing a pound. Crickets or worms are working equally as good.

Till next time,stay cool and good fishin' Jamie
