Table Rock LakeBranson Fishing Guide Table Rock Lake


Table Rock Lake is a beautiful, deep, clear lake with incredible fishing for all species. It is one of the top 10 Bass Fishing Lakes in the country (By Bassmaster Magazine) and is known for great year round fishing for all four species of bass (largemouth, small mouth, spotted bass, and mean mouth bass). The springtime (March – June) has some of the best fishing available. 30-50+ fish days are not uncommon. Summer (June – Sept.) offers incredible deep fishing with large schools of fish moving into deep water making them easy to catch, Fall (Sept. – Dec.) fish move shallow again and “it’s on” all species of bass move up and feed preparing for winter.

Bull Shoals Lake is a a huge reservoir, with over 63,000 acres it holds unlimited fishing potential and offers outstanding fishing year round. Known throughout the US as a Bass Fishery, the Walleye fishing is one it’s best kept secrets. The lake record Walleye is a massive 22+ pounds. Early spring is your best bet to catch Walleye, February – April.  Spring is also the time to target crappie on the big lake; with monsters reaching 18′ – 20″ a common occurrence. Just like Table Rock Bull Shoals has a great population of all four bass species and is an unbelievable year round fishery with the opportunity to catch trophy smallmouth and largemouth in the same day.


taneycomo trout guideLake Taneycomo


Lake Taneycomo is one of the best trout fisheries in the world. Both Rainbow Trout and German Brown Trout make their home in Lake Taneycomo offers a fantastic fish catching experience for the entire family.  From drift fishing to casting the opportunity is always there for a big Rainbow or Brown Trout. With 20 – 60 fish days all year the cold water of Lake Taneycomo is a perfect spot for family fun even in the heat of summer.


The highlight of our trip to Branson & Big Cedar Lodge was fishing with Eric Prey! As a tournament fisherman I was impressed with his knowledge of so many different lures & techniques and his willingness to share “jewels” of information from the countless hours he has spent on the water. I spent two days with him; the first was rainy & overcast then two days later we fished with bright blue bird skies…catching fish on each outing while adapting techniques to fit the conditions. It helped me do well on Table Rock on the days I fished on my own & allowed me to bring back a few new tricks to challenge my home lake bass! Don’t miss an opportunity to fish with a White River Lakes legend! Check out his weekly fishing reports to see what’s going on but you’ve got to fish with him to KNOW what’s going on!
