Fishing Notes

Today I made a run up to Old Kinderhook in the Niangua to take some photos of the property for an up coming article. I was totally blown away by the property and how it sets up so well as the very best property on this lake for fishing, golf and family. If you want a Big Cedar Lodge style facility on Lake of the Ozarks, Old Kinderhook is your place to check out. Boat ramp, trailer parking, brush piles all around their docks, beautiful restaurants, pools, golf course, brand new rustic style hotel, home rentals….I was truly in awe. GM Bob Renken is an avid bass fisherman and fishes many tournaments on the lake. Check it out and watch for my up-coming article on the amenities for fisherman, golfers and families.

After tour of the property, I fished around the dock ramp and docks, catching two 16″ keepers, then worked a bluff ledge up across from the property and caught another keeper. The water as you will see from the pics is a bit muddy, but that has put those fish shallower and around shallow flats. Once you move back down the Niangua past what is commonly referred to as the “horse shoe” the water becomes slightly stained and not nearly as muddy. I was able to graph fish on most main lake long tapering points and bluff ends, most holding in 25′ – 30′ of water, however I could not get many bites, just a couple of small keepers and a few shorts on some jigs, cranks and spoon. I thought it was interesting that the water temp up the Niangua closer to Old Kinderhook was a few degrees cooler, 65-68 degrees but was warmer from past the horseshoe to the mouth of the Niangua 71-74 degrees. It was a fun day fishing that area today.
