  1. The boat ramp and swim beach parking lots at Ruark Bluff Day Use Area will be closed for several days in late September to early October for surface maintenance. Work will include crack filling, surface sealing, chip sealing and pavement marking. Set dates are not yet known but we will share them as soon as work is scheduled. If you have any questions, please contact the Stockton Lake Project Office at 417-276-3113. Thank you for your patience while we perform this much needed maintenance in these recreation areas.
  2. Back up again early this morning and had an awesome top water bite on the Plopper!!! Spent all day in Sons Creek and ended up with roughly 20 bass and caught quite a few crappie but only six would measure. Found the crappie swimming a jig on isolated timber in 8 to 12 fow. Tight Lines!!!

    Got on the water out of Mutton Creek about 830 this morning and it was an incredibly beautiful day out there, not a drop of rain at all. Ended up catching a number of nice bass on jigs and creature baits, one catfish and one drum on a crappie jig, and ended up with seven really nice black crappie. The crappie came on shad color jigs on brush in 12 to 16 feet of water on the main lake. Tight Lines!
  4. I was also up yesterday and after only catching one small bass and a bluegill after four hours I hung it up. I tried in the brush, in the very back of the brush, on points, flats and around bridge pilings. The water clarity is good around the Masters area but I’m afraid we are in the dog days of summer when it comes to fishing. Tight Lines....NOT! 😢

  9. How were the water conditions? Is the main lake dingy and dirty yet?
  10. What did the water look like in that area, stained or muddy?

    Back on the water again this morning out of State Park and ended up with a limit of crappie and two walleye over 20 inches! We tried trolling the flicker shad’s but really didn’t have much luck with them. All of our fish except for two came by trolling jigs in shad patterns in 12 to 20 feet of water. About half the crappie we caught were females that still had eggs in them, some of the eggs had hardened up and I think are starting to be reabsorbed. Water temps were 64 to 68° Tight Lines!
