Current Table Rock Lake Report for August 21st.  Only word to describe it is SILLY. :have-a-nice-day:

Largemouth Bass Good  Jig bite on the docks and any submerged cover shallow.
Smallmouth Good.  Same pattern, also swimming a grub up close early and late. 4″ SP
Spotted Bass Excellent to Beyond Belief. 22′ to 36′ Humps and Channel Swings.  Crawlers, Shiners, Dropshot Plastics, Jigging and Flutter Spoons.
Walleye Excellent  Same Locations as the K’s and the same baits and presentations.
Catfish Excellent.  Same Locations as the K’s and the same baits and presentations.
Big Blue Gill Very Good to Excellent.  22′ and under on the same swings, humps and runnouts as the others.
White Bass Fair  Jigging Spoons same locations as the above meat eaters.

Trip out of  OMR yesterday for 6 hrs. and the take on a catch and totally release basis was between 50 and 60 bass a combination of K’s and quite a few Jaw’s.  8 catfish up to 12 pounds and 2, 3.5 pound Walleye.  Broke 3 or 4 off, unseen, and I am just guessing they were walleye, you can easily tell by the fight and the strike.

I’m usually not here in August, cause the fishing is slow and the temperature and boat pressure are high.  Not so much of late.  75 degree when we hit the dock at Noon, and we probably didn’t see a dozen boats while fishing.

Come on, this is just amazing.  All the guides are just catching and releasing fish at a unbelievable rate.

Bite seems to be mostly from Point 5 then completely up the White River.  Main Channel.  Other than the dam area and the Kings River, the lake is fishing like Spring and pre-Spawn, only deeper.

Better get out there and start hitting it.  Got a feeling when this surface temps drops the fish will disperse as they always do in Late August thru mid October and it will get hard.   That time of year they may be in 1′ or  70′.

Right now however its Game On.
