Table Rock Lake
Table Rock Dam was completed in August of 1958 and is located approximately 6 miles south west of Branson, Missouri at White River Mile 528.8. It has a maximum height above the river bed of 252 feet, is 6,423 feet in length, of which 4,821 feet is an earth embankment, and has 10 Spillway Crest Gates.
Table Rock Lake has a surface area of approximately 43,100 surface acres, 745 miles of shoreline, and a lake elevation above mean sea level of 915 feet at the top of the Conservation Pool and 52,300 surface acres, 857 miles of shoreline, and a lake elevation above mean sea level of 931 feet at the top of the Flood Control Pool.
On the average the lake will be at or below the figures used for the Conservation Pool because that is what is used as the guide level for the generation of hydroelectric power.
Both the Dam and Lake are controlled by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and general information can be obtained through the Table Rock Resident Office, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, P. O. Box 1109, Branson, Missouri 65616. The telephone number is 417-334-4101.
Table Rock Lake offers a variety of recreational activities including hiking, sightseeing, hunting, skin diving, fishing, and water sports such as swimming, boating, water skiing etc.
Table Rock Lake offers excellent fresh water fishing for warm water species such as Large Mouth Bass, Spotted Bass, White Bass, Crappie, Channel Cat, Bream and other panfish. In addition, the cold water of the tailwaters of Table Rock Dam serve as the headwaters for Lake Taneycomo, a world class fishery for Brown and Rainbow Trout.
The lake provides excellent fishing all year long, seldom freezes, and has no closed season. Obviously the best Large Mouth fishing will be in the spring and fall of the year but excellent Large Mouth, Small Mouth, and Spotted Bass fishing is available all year providing the angler is willing to modify his tactics to fit the changing conditions.
Night fishing for Large Mouth Bass during the months of July and August can produce some nice fish. Early morning fishing for Small Mouth along the banks south of the Table Rock Dam can also provide excitement.
