Acclaimed as one of the top bass fishing lakes in North America, Table Rock boasts an abundance of bass, crappie, white bass, catfish, and bluegill. An aggressive fish management program, resulting in an impressive resurgence of largemouth, Kentucky and smallmouth bass of exceptional size, has allowed the lake to become an exciting stop for hobbyists and professionals alike.

Table Rock Lake offers has some of the best deep clear water fishing in the United States rated one of the top 10 lakes of the US for all types of Bass: Largemouth, Small Mouth, Spotted Bass, Mean Mouth, and White Bass with the use of artificial baits and live bait. Table Rock Lake Bass Fishing is year round from Mid-March for our pre-spawn fishing, April for our spawn, May for our post spawn topwater fishing. Table Rock also offers great Small Mouth Bass fishing June through December for our deep water fishing bite. Anglers can enjoy the summer deep water drop shot fishing with artificial and live bait for Bass, Bluegill, and White Bass.

Table Rock Fish

  • Largemouth Bass: The Largemouth is an excellent sporting fish, and fish in excess of 5 pounds are abundant. You will find them widely distributed around and throughout the lake.
  • Smallmouth Bass: You will find these fish located at the lower lake and upper reaches of the main tributaries. This breed is also considered the best battler once hooked.
  • Kentucky (Spotted) Bass: Are to be found abundantly along the entire lake and main tributaries. They are schooling fish during summer and fall and are also considered real fighters once hooked.
  • White Bass: Tremendous schools of white bass make annual runs to the upper reaches of main tributaries each spring.
  • Rock Bass (Goggle Eye): The Schooling fish are usually located in coves and creeks and are very good to eat.
  • Bluegill: Located all over the lake with a partiality to boat docks, this fish is not hard to find. A great piece of fish for the family dinner, big slabs over 3/4 pounds are not an uncommon occurrence.

Accessible from multiple public and privately owned locations just minutes to the west of Branson, Table Rock Lake has been delighting visitors and residents alike since it was formed by the damming of the White River in 1958. While visitors can find dozens of places to stay and play along the banks of Table Rock Lake, the area’s commercial developments have placed a high priority on preserving the scenic beauty of the natural shoreline, bluffs, forests and wildlife that inhabit the shoreline.
