Lake Ozarks is almost full with stain water in main channel with coves mostly clear. Waters 68 % at lower end.
Fishing is good for numbers and the smaller keepers but the bigger fish seam to be hiding. Crappie are on points in ten to twenty feet deep.
Micah and his dad jarred wanted a split day. Half for bass and other half for crappie. They had to learn the bite on a Shaky head but one that was done things picked up. Micah’s big fish was close to five pounds and Jarred had the most bass. Then crappie Jarred again had the most but Micah was big crappie winner.

We had three small mouth. Going 2.5 #s one four # and. Large mouth four #’s. A fun day. We also had a number of small fish too.

Fished the Gasconade River today. We had several small month but no big ones. We’ve got a fair pattern going just need bigger fish. I did catch a mussel for the first time ever. Haven’t seen a mussel this big in years.

First trip of the day was a good start. Got to the third spot and guys started catching fish. Throwing a Croc-O-Gator shaky head Man those shaky heads get the fish in the boat. Main lake wasn’t working so we moved in to points.
The lake is up and trash is all over be careful running. Main lake is 66% and a little stain. Running 35,000 cb feet plus.
The second trip was below the dam and it was packed. Ty and Lis got to work right off. Ty landed the first one then Lis got started with the biggest and most fish. Good job.

Well it’s summer the big boats are out. Be careful. We had a big boat go between us and the bank today. We were about fifty yards away from the bank as the guy got close I wave for him to go around us but he didn’t.
Fishing was fair had six keepers not real big but nice fish in all we had twenty bass.
Lake is full with main lake stained and 64%. There running a lot of water out so the Osage is around 566.

It’s been a busy summer with lots of trips a memory’s of fun fishing.
Lake Ozarks is full and warm but clear in all the arms and main channel. Lots of big boats and jet skis. You’ll need to fish just a little before dark or all night to get the most bites. Not a lot of big fish but you will catch some nice ones.
Crappie are in main channel and night time is also the best time to get a limit. Minnows are best right now.
River fishing has been real good at day light on top water. The last few days a jig, worm are shaky head has gotten the nicer bass. Be on the water by day light and fish till ten or twelve or just a few hours before dark.

Fishing on the lake has been good all of May and June. Bass are in the summer pattern about 25’ deep on points. Worms, jigs, Caroline rigs and some crank baits are working. Crappie too are in the summer patterns in 15 to 25’ deep. I’m fishing at night for crappie with minnows or shooting socks early in mornings
The river has been the most fun the last few weeks as a top water bite has been good. Rain and cloudy morning have helped. The river has been low and steady so they are not moving a lot.

Lake Ozarks is at 659.4 and full of boats. Bass are biting good in fifteen feet of water crappie are good around docks ten to fifteen ft deep. Go early as the bite is best then.
Osage River has theee to four feet of water on Saturday but I look for them to run water on Monday because of the rain around the lake. Good bass are a little hard to come by but tennto fourteen inch one are good. Crappie are a slow. Here are a few of the fish we had Friday and Saturday.

Lake Ozark is doing great right now. Fishing is good from one end to the other. Bass and crappie are just about done spawning and are feeding. The bass are about to move out to main lake but are shallow right now. Crappie are moving to but are still around deeper docks.
