This is forty seven and seven tenths feet below the top of flood pool.

The Southwestern Power Administration has been back and forth the last few days on how many generators they are running. Earlier this week the ran one half of a generator all day but later this week they did not run any until noon or around two in the afternoon. Also, the recording at the dam which tells you how many are running has not been correct either. read more…

Did not get on the water till 9:30 and fished some suspended trees right off the bat with a spook. Most people have their boats between where I was fishing and these trees and the bank. Looks like I’m casting into an abis. First run with the spook on 68 degree water was a slam and a very nice keeper K. there were 3 following him in trying to snatch the spook from his upper jaw. All looked to be cookie cutter Shell Knob Keeps at about 16″. read more…

Generation – no much with the exception of one day this week when they ran quite a bit all day. It did clean the lake out, at least the upper end. They’ve been running “fish water” in the evenings, about 2 hours of a half unit. Check the SPA schedule, but don’t rely on it 100%. They do change it without notice. read more…

During the second week in July, we posted a report on the Finesse News Network that caught the attention of Stacey King of Reeds Spring, Missouri.
The gist of the report was that an angler from St. Louis was using a jika rig, as well as one of the standard Midwest finesse rigs, to inveigle an impressive array of largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass from the confines of Table Rock Lake, which is King’s home waterway. read more…

Water levels are running at 243 cfs at the spring and water clarity has been clear. Over the last week the fishing has been excellent on overcast, cloudy days and tuff on really nice sunny days. Y2k’s, snails and olive woolies have been the hot flies this week. Red and hot pink trout magnets are working great with spinning rods. This week the leaves have begun to fall and on windy days can be a problem when they cover the river. Just remember the leaves sometimes have ants and bugs on them. If you see trout that look like they are feeding on the leaves, then they are probably eating ants on the leaves.
