Tucked away in the Ozarks, Branson, Missouri, is a popular Midwestern tourist destination. The family attractions in the area include 76 Country Boulevard and Silver Dollar City. While there is certainly plenty of entertainment to be had in this Ozarks destination, people typically seek out Branson for its proximity to the natural world. The Ozarks have many natural wonders, and the plentiful waterways are truly something special. With all this, the opportunities for Branson fishing are vast.
There are several key lakes in Branson, but the most popular is Bull Shoals Lake. This reservoir is massive, and it has more than 1,000 miles of shoreline. With so much water, the fish are populous at Bull Shoals. The area is best known for its population of Largemouth Bass. The fish spawn so readily here that many full-sized adults are beneath the surface. Some of the largest catches have been 12 pounds.
Another option is Table Rock Lake. Table Rock Lake is another manmade lake, and it is fueled by the White River, James River and Long Creek. Different Bass species are common here. You can find Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth Bass and Spotted Bass. What people love about Table Rock Lake is that there are many inlets and shallow areas where the fish like to congregate. While catches are possible all year long, the best season is in the spring.
Bass is not your only potential catch in Branson’s waters. Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake and Lake Taneycomo are also great spots to catch Black Crappie, Brown Trout and Rainbow Trout. To support the population of Black Crappie, there have been a number of artificial reefs developed in these lakes. These reefs give the fish the habitat they need to thrive, and they ensure that Branson fishing is always strong.
