Fishing at North Beach

Fishing at North Beach

The waters of Taneycomo Lake are some of the most sought after fishing grounds in the country. The cold waters and excellent water quality attract boaters and anglers.

Fishing the Upper Taneycomo Lake

Fishing the Upper Taneycomo Lake

The first six miles of Taneycomo Lake are teeming with fish and considered the premier spot in the area. Depending on water flow from Taneycomo Lake, current water levels, and rain levels, you can see anglers in waders fishing for trout. Remember: this water is cold and is not somewhere you want to wade in without preparation. There are multiple water accesses along the Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery`s property with areas that could be fished from the bank. Follow BELLADONNA TRAIL for parking.

Fishing at Table Rock State Park

Fishing at Table Rock State Park

Table Rock State Park is one of the most popular water accesses on Table Rock Lake due to its locality to Branson and attractions. However, don`t let that deter you from setting up a chair with your fishing gear. The walking trails (Lakeshore Trail) located at the state park will allow you to wander away from the boat access, where the water can be very busy. Follow Lakeshore Trail (a mostly flat trail) to find a spot along Table Rock Lake to cast a line!

The views of Table Rock Lake are big and be on the lookout for the Showboat Branson Belle! The water quickly drops off from the shore and the water can be rough if there`s lots of boats out.
