Water Temp: 76-86

Branson

Fishing guides have noticed a decent topwater bite every morning from daybreak until the sun comes up over the hill. Banks on the east side of the lake will hold shade longer than banks on the west side so look for large community docks on east banks to be the most productive. Smaller topwater baits like Pop R’s and Spooks Jr. have been the most productive baits when fish are surfacing. Once the surface activity slows move out to deep trees and target suspending fish 35’ – 50’ deep with drop shot rigs. 

Kimberling City

The morning topwater bite Branson fishing guides have found on the lower end is just as good in Kimberling City. Big community docks on east  

banks will have surfacing fish until the sun “comes up over the hill”. Deep trees are holding fish in the mid lake as well, look for trees that top out between 35’ – 55’ to be the most productive, drop shot rigged UV worms and ROBO worms have been the best offerings. Jewel football jigs in PB&J or green pumpkin candy with green pumpkin J Tail trailers are working on deeper points with wood or rock cover. Look for cover from 20’ – 35’ to be best.         

James  

The best water color on the lake continues to be on the James River and has kept fish relatively shallow from Aunts Creek to above Cape Fair. Jewel football jigs and Carolina rigged UV hogs have been producing on main lake and secondary points in larger creeks. Most of the fish will be between 15’ – 20’ deep holding close to wood or rock cover on the point. 10” – 12” Texas rigged worms have been working in brush piles on channel swing banks further up the river. Look for brush piles close to deep water to be the most productive.                    

White River
 
The best fishing on the lake continues to be in the White River. The morning topwater bite is strong from Baxter to above Big M, the drop shot bite has been great in tree tops around Baxter to above Shell Knob, Jewel football jigs and Carolina rigged UV hogs have been working on main lake and secondary points around Shell Knob to and deep crankbaits have been working in the Kings River. Branson fishing guides continue to put fish in the boat throughout the White River.
