Bull Shoals Lake Fishing Report – June 22, 2016

Bull Shoals Lake Fishing Report – June 22, 2016

As of Wednesday, the Army Corps of Engineers reports the lake’s elevation at 663.15 feet msl (normal conservation pool – 659.00 msl).
(updated 6-22-2016) K Dock Marina (417-334-2880) reported the fishing has been a little tougher after this last week of extreme heat. The surface temp around our area is already at 88 degrees! Pretty hot for the middle of June. The water is clear to stained.

Start fishing your deeper summer patterns for walleye and crappie. Bass are still good on a variety of jigs and lures.

Also, keep in mind that the boat launch at the end of K Highway is almost completely under water. With the new seasonal pool now set at 662.00 feet msl, their boat launch and access road is a thing of the past. Frustrating to think that fishermen and recreational boaters living in and visiting the Branson area will struggle to find an access onto Bull Shoals Lake.

Black bass are good on topwater early mornings and evenings. Also good on jigs, plastics in the brush and big worms. Walleye are fair on deep-diving crankbaits and bottom-bouncing nightcrawlers. Crappie is slow to fair on live minnows at 15-20 feet deep.
