Table Rock Lake

Recommended Posts

I have never fished this lake. I am willing to try fishing for any species. We will be staying by Kimberling (sp?) City I believe. Any advice on areas, tactics, etc... would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Wish I could help but that is a little too far south for me. Like most places, I would check with the local bait shops, marinas and with whom you may be staying. Good luck.

i have been to table rock twice and the last time about 10 years ago. it was this time of the year also. we stayed at a resort. as far as fishing i wanted to catch bass. like the other poster said ask the locals for advice. i went to the shallows with all the dead trees and bassy looking water. big mistake. so wasting two days in the shallows i did some trolling in 80ft of water and saw fish around 25ft suspended-bingo. i was using a deep diving plug that went down that deep. i trolled the rest of the week using that method and cought largemouth and kentucky's. the min. size at the time for bass was 15in. most of what i caught were 15 or a little better. never caught a hog but i dont mind that a bit. the resort guy asked me if i kept any. i said i dont keep any just catch and release. he told me to keep some and try em. well my wife wanted some fish fry so i did and they were good. i guess people keep bass there more than here. so i would check for suspended fish. also seen big flat head catfish swimming near the surface a lot feeding on sunnies. the river below the dam has rainbow trout in it. check out the hatcherie located there. silver dollar city is like vally fair. branson for entertaining. oh yeah, dont expect to find beer in silver dollar city-just pop. you can buy beer in gas stations there. people were very friendly too. hope this helps a little. good luck.

Thanks for the help. I am planning on talking to some bait shops and the resort owner for sure, but I truly appreciate the advice about the shallows. ALways good to know.

THanks again.

Anymore advice anyone?

For the most part Table Rock is very clear water. It has been awhile since I have been there but the fishing can be very good. Good luck.

I used to have a place at Norfork, a little further down, similar water. In summer fish are usually suspended in or over deep water usually near

the channels in curves and points. Fishing is usually with Hopkins spoons

verticle jigging. Water is gin clear so 40' is a good place to start.

    • Like he said. After opening weekend there may be few fish left.  Here's a little view why! 😉        
    • Welcome to the forums.   There is another company here in Minnesota that gets used a lot called Mattracks that you may want to look up. What size motor do you have? It takes a pretty good size motor to turn these tracks and get any speed out of them.   https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjohMjdlYbjAhWPGM0KHSFVAFoQFjAAegQIBxAC&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mattracks.co%2F&usg=AOvVaw0l1s0-KJl2XMVmGU069TQt  
    • Upsize to #2 mepps. They cast much farther than the smaller sizes. With that being said, most (if not all) the trout have probably been caught out of the lake. If there is any trout left to be caught, I’d make sure to be there early in the morning as soon as the park opens.
    • So I am new to ATV’s and was doing some research on tracks for ATVs. I live in North Idaho and for winter and spring we have tons of snow and mud to deal with so was thinking tracks might be a good idea. So I found this site helpful https://www.atvtracks.net/track-systems and  local for me but wanted to get others opinions on what they use? I noticed they have two brands one Camso and one Kimpex what do y’all prefer?
    • Yep, it was good again.
    • Do they all have the same issues?  If they do, then probably not the roku, although rebooting them by unplugging the power for a minute or so might be worth a try, if you haven't already done so. 
    • I do not have a Chromecast.  I will try the Comcast fix first then work my way to the hardware.  I have two roku streaming stick + and one roku streaming stick.
    • I have my Garmin Astro 360 that works well enough along with dog tracking.   I have used my smart phone on a large loop walk through private and tax forfeited land.   The accuracy was pretty darn good.   Superimpose over satellite imagery on a generic mapping program and you can see right where you are and set course around areas you want to avoid.   Battery drain is pretty strong.   I also prefer to keep my eyes up and gain sight knowledge of an area so that future use of electronics becomes a back up and not a crutch.
    • Is fishing Cenaiko worth doing in late June and July? I’ve never really trout fished before and I want to give it a try. If it’s worth fishing, how would you fish the lake? I have an ultralight setup with #1 and #0 Mepps spinners but I have a feeling that wouldn’t work well trying to pull Trout out of a lake. Any tips? 
    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.
