Table Rock Lake Fishing Report 8/17/11

Posted on August 18, 2011 by admin

We had a nice little break from the scorching heat and was it nice. Although now we are back in the heat for a few more days. The water temperature has dropped a few degrees to the low to mid eighties. The fishing remains fair to good early in the morning. Every day is a little different from the previous day. It seems you have to move around a lot to catch a good sack of fish. One day you catch them in one area and the next day you don't. I've been fishing the points and flats on the main lake with 5/8th oz. jigs. There are some big Smallmouth and some big Largemouth out there to be caught. It seems like every day we would catch at least one big fish. We have had Largemouth up to 5 1/2 lbs. and Smallmouth up to 4 1/2 pounds. That's not bad for dog days of summer on Table Rock. I hope this heat breaks and the water temperature starts to fall as this should bring some more Smallmouth up to feed during the day. Cloudy days are definitely the best days to fish right now. If you can get some clouds and a good wind the bite lasts longer into the day. I did get out yesterday around 1:30 in the afternoon. The boat traffic is way down right now and I was able to catch some good fish. With the exception of a 3 lb. Smallmouth I did catch some good Kentucky bass down a little deeper in the 35 foot range on the jig.

Until next time. Good Fishin'
