Excel Fishing Charters, Hooked On Branson Fishing, and Eric's Elite Guide Service–Branson all received great reviews from families who booked fishing trips in Table Rock Lake.

The most popular fish species you can target are Rainbow Trout (Steelhead), Brown Trout, and Crappie. Top fishing techniques include Light Tackle, Spinning, and Drift Fishing. Lake fishing, river fishing, and inshore fishing are commonly offered by local guides.

Tasty Catfish, feisty Bass species, and eye-catching Rainbow Trout in the nearby creeks...there’s plenty on offer in Table Rock Lake that’ll make you want to wet your line. Even better, you’ll find a whole host of local and experienced Table Rock Lake fishing guides just waiting to show you around these bustling fishing grounds. Choose your target species, grab your friends and family, and come explore the best-kept secret in the Ozarks!
 

What can I catch?

Branson, Missouri is Table Rock Lake’s main departure point. In fact, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a fishing guide who departs from elsewhere, especially on the Arkansas side. The best way to select your trip is by deciding on the fish you’d like to target. So what are your options?
 

Bass, Bass, and more Bass!

What makes Bass fishing in Table Rock Lake so special is that it’s common to hook Largemouth, Smallmouth, and Spotted varieties all in one trip. These fish can be found all throughout the lake, and are available year-round.
 
Generally, the best places to target this trio of Bass is around Table Rock Dam, as well as the skinny “fingers” of the lake. An experienced guide will be able to take you to the secret coves, channels, creeks, and honey holes that these fish love.
 

Tasty Table Fare

If you’re a newer angler or are looking for a family-friendly trip, why not opt to target some of Table Rock Lake’s delicious dinner options? These waters are home to tasty Catfish, Crappie, and Bluegill. All of these fish taste great and are fun to catch, especially for little ones who are just discovering their love for casting a line.
 

Like Bass, these species can be targeted year-round in the lake. Catfish are especially plentiful around the James River – this is also a favored spot for Crappie, too. Bluegill tend to lurk around the shallow shoreline waters of the lake. Your guide will usually have you casting your line for them as you start your trip.


Lake Taneycomo Trout Fishing

Although Table Rock Lake has plenty to offer all on its own, keen Trout fishermen looking to potentially hook Rainbow and Brown varieties should head to nearby Lake Taneycomo. Located just on the other side of Branson and connected to Table Rock Lake by creeks, you’ll find plenty of Trout-fishing charter guides waiting to help you reel in your very own haul.
 

Need to Know

Fishing in Table Rock Lake and Lake Taneycomo is possible year-round, but the best time to visit depends on the fish you want to hook. Bass-chasers should visit from March–May, which covers the pre-spawning and spawning seasons. Crappie fishing is especially strong in winter, whereas Catfish and Bluegill are best during those hot summer months.
 
If you’re fishing with a local charter or guide, they’ll make sure you’re decked out with all the fishing gear you need. Before your trip, you should purchase a Missouri fishing license with a “White River Border Permit,” as this will let you fish the entirety of the lake. Then it’s just a case of heading to Table Rock Lake and getting ready to cast your line in this incredible pocket of nature!

Start your year off in the best way by heading to the Ozarks for a fishing adventure! Thanks to Table Rock Lake’s year-round fishery, you’ll find plenty on offer – especially when it comes to Crappie.

February
Bass start to show up in bigger numbers as their pre-spawning season approaches. Head to the lake’s shallower waters for the chance to hook all three varieties!
 
March

The Bass pre-spawning season is upon us, which means you should head to Table Rock Lake’s clearest, shallowest waters, where you’ll find them in droves.

April
Bass fishing remains strong, so come and try your hand at hooking Largemouth, Smallmouth, and spotted varieties. Head to Lake Taneycomo for the chance to go after Rainbow and Brown Trout.
 
May
May signals Bass spawning season, so if you’re looking for some trophy-sized species, head down to the lake! Crappie, Bluegill, and Catfish are all on offer, too.

October
As the weather starts to cool, Crappie start to show up in even bigger numbers. Bass fishing remains strong, especially in deeper waters.

Book a good guide that has experience. It’s a tough time of the year to catch them because it’s so hot. The good ones will still get you on some fish.

Having a guide that has experience, knows the area, provides a boat and all the fishing gear you need. It makes traveling so much easier when you don’t have to being all of the fishing gear with you.

Bryan was a great Captain and guide. He showed us where and how we should fish for the best chance of catching more fish!! Great conversation and he showed a lot of experience for his age!! It was a pleasure to spend the day on the water with Bryan. My brother-in-law can’t stop talking about our great day of fishing. The 24 inch Walleye was one of my best fish ever. Oh, by the way, we spanked the bass!!!!

Although the fish were not biting all that well, captain Brien made sure we had a good time. My girlfriend and her daughter don’t even care for fishing all that much, and they really enjoyed the trip. Also, it doesn’t hurt that Brien had us fishing out of a new 21’ bass boat. It was very comfortable. We will certainly be back to go with Brien again.
