White River Area

Bass are being caught on wiggle wart crank baits and 5" milky white grubs on main lake and secondary flat gravel points. On windy days some fish are also being caught on spinner baits in wind blown pockets. Split shot rigs with green pumpkin fish doctor or centipedes in 5-15 feet deep on gravel points, main lake and secondary are also working very good for bass. Look for bass in spawning pockets toward the backs of creeks. Split shot and Carolina rigged lizards work best in these areas.

Some fish can also be caught on Carolina rig, centipedes 5-15 feet deep. Look for bass in spawning pockets toward the backs of creeks.

Crappie

Crappie fishing is excellent in the Kings River, James River on channel banks around pole timber and in creeks around standing timber 5-10 feet deep chartreuse and white crappie jigs, 1/16 and 1/8 oz jigs and on minnows.

In the Long Creek area, crappie are being caught on channel banks around pole timber 5-15 feet deep and in the afternoons after the water warms they can be caught in gravel pockets and on gravel points 5-8 feet deep with chartreuse and white crappie tubes and crappie jigs or minnows.

Lake Taneycomo

Trout

Trout fishing is very good in the trophy area and also below Fall Creek dock. In the trophy area from Fall Creek to the darn, the trout size seems to be improving with the cooler weather. I'm catching some nice rainbows and a few browns on a small Rapala in the morning and also swimming a white 1/16 ounce jig. The trout in the trophy area will also take pink or green micro jigs under a float and a zebra midge has also been very good. Below the trophy are from Fall Creek down, the trout are biting very good on night crawlers or power baits. In the early morning you can catch them swimming a 1/16 ounce jig or little Cleo spoon.
