Table Rock Lake near Branson, Missouri is
the second reservoir in the White River chain of lakes. The
dam was constructed in 1958, creating a lake that has 745
miles of shoreline. Table Rock's bottom was not cleared of
trees so it's full of structure for fish to hold on. It's full
of old cedars and hardwoods. In as much as 60 feet of water
you'll find oaks peeping out of the waters' surface. It has
shear-wall bluffs and slooping points, deep, rocky coves and
pea gravel banks (all the fish habitats you'll need to keep
you busy all day).
There are several major arms of
Table Rock Lake- James River and Flat Creek coming from the
north and the Springfield watershed and the White and
Kings Rivers from the south-Fayetteville, Arkansas watershed.
And then there's the Long Creek arm, also in the south but
entering on the eastern side and the Harrison, Arkansas
Lake Taneycomo is a man-made lake or reservoir on the
White River in the Ozark Mountains of Taney County, Missouri.
The reservoir is named for the county in which it is located:
Taney County, MO.
Lake Taneycomo originated when the White River was confined
by the completion of the Powersite Dam, near Forsyth,
Missouri. The Powersite Dam is privately owned by The
Empire District Electric Company. From 1913 until 1958 it was
a warm water lake. In the 1930s, tourists began to be drawn to
the lake and its nearby communities, Branson and Rockaway
The completion of Table Rock Dam in 1958 changed the source of
water to Taneycomo from that of the White River's flowing
waters to the bottom tailwater of Table Rock Lake from the dam
spillway and made it into a cold water lake. The clear cold
waters from the deep tailwaters of Table Rock Lake pour out of the dam into Lake Taneycomo. These cold waters of Lake
Taneycomo created some of the finest trout fishing
anywhere in the world. To take advantage of this change the
Missouri Department of Conservation constructed the Shepherd
of the Hills Trout Hatchery. All methods of trout fishing -
fly fishing, artificial bait, and live bait fishing - may be
used year-round to pursue trout that inhabit the waters of
Lake Taneycomo, however special regulations apply in the upper
section. In order to improve the quality of the fishery, the Missouri Department of conservation
established lure regulations and slot limits in 1997. From
Table Rock Dam to the mouth of Fall Creek, only artificial
flies and lures may be used, soft plastics are specifically
prohibited. Rainbow trout must be less than 12" or greater
than 20" to be harvested, and brown trout must be greater than
20" to be harvested. A daily limit of 4 trout applies, only
one of which may be a brown trout. This upper section is
generally regarded as a "trophy area" and catch and release
fishing is widely practiced. Lake Taneycomo has the
characteristics of both a river and a lake. The shallow colder
water, located near the Table Rock Dam, averages 48 degrees F,
resembles a river and permits wading and bank fishing for
trout. The average temperature of the water gets warmer and
the depth of the lake deepens to more than 50 feet near
the Powersite Dam in Forsyth. When Table Rock Dam is generating
power its current is very strong throughout its whole length,
its water temperature drops, and for all practical purposes it
becomes a very deep, cold, fast running river. Exactly how
deep, cold, and fast depends on how many generators are being
used to generate electricity at Table Rock Dam.
Lake Taneycomo offers a variety of recreational activities
including hiking, sightseeing,
hunting, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, boating,
skiing. People accessing Lake Taneycomo are able to visit
area restaurants, hotels, shopping, and shows in the Branson area.
Bull Shoals Lake
Shoals Lake is an artificial lake or reservoir in the
Ozark Mountains of northern Arkansas and southern Missouri. It has hundreds of miles of lake
arms and coves perfect for boating, water sports, swimming,
and fishing. Nineteen developed parks around the shoreline
provide campgrounds, boat launches, swim areas, and marinas.
Shoals Dam was created to impound the White River by one
of the largest concrete dams in the United States and the 5th
largest dam in the world at its inception. Work on the dam
began in 1947, was completed in 1951 and dedicated by
President Truman in 1952. At least seven small family
cemeteries and 20 larger cemeteries were meticulously
relocated to accommodate the new lake.
Bull Shoals Lake impounds the White River for the last time as
water travels toward its mouth on the Mississippi River. Bull
Shoals is thus the lake farthest downstream in a chain of
four artificial lakes that include (from upstream to
downstream) Beaver Lake, Table
Rock Lake and Lake
Taneycomo. The lake is controlled by the Army Corps of
Engineers and has the primary purpose of flood control. The
level of the lake fluctuates regularly with a normal pool
level elevation of 654 feet above sea level, which is locally
known as powerpool. However, the lake regularly fluctuates
between an elevation of 630 to 680 feet. The shoreline of the
lake is totally undeveloped and protected by a buffer zone
(locally called the "take line") owned, operated, managed, and
controlled by the Army Corps of Engineers. The dam is designed
for a maximum elevation of 695 feet (top of the flood pool). Bull
Shoals Lake covers 45,000 acres with a 700 mile shoreline at powerpool to more than 70,000 acres
with a 1,000 mile shoreline at 690 feet.
The bottom of the lake consists of bedrock with very limited
vegetation. The shoreline is heavily forested.
Shoals-White River State Park is a 725 acre park
both above and below the massive dam. Facilities, including
camping, pavilions, dock and interpretive programs, stretch
along the banks of the White River. Along the lakeshore, the
park offers picnic sites and playgrounds.
