The Best Fall Fishing Is Found At The Lake Of The Ozarks!

The Lake of the Ozarks has been home to some of the best fishing in the country for over 80 years! With 55,000 acres of water and 1,150 miles of shoreline, there's plenty of spots for lots of fish to hide. The Lake is home to many different species of fish including black and white crappie, bluegill, spoonbill, gizzard shad, channel catfish, flathead catfish, blue catfish, white bass, walleye, gar, hybrid striper, largemouth and spotted bass. With the large variety of fish that call the Lake home, the fishing opportunities are endless! However, fall fishing at the Lake of the Ozarks is all about bass. Whether you've been in hundreds of tournaments or you're a recreational angler who's looking for some fun, a fishing trip to the Lake of the Ozarks is perfect for any fishermen. 


Early Fall Fishing

October is one of the most beautiful times of the year to fish at the Lake of the Ozarks, as the leaves are just beginning to change. The autumn scenery and the pleasant temperatures make it a great time to head out for some fishing before it gets too cold. During October, the fish will be scattered throughout the lake with no special location. Shad fish can be found throughout the entire lake, however, anglers will be focusing their attention on bass, including white or hybrid bass. This type of fish is aggressive and will put up a fight, which makes them fun for anglers to catch. 

Late Fall Fishing

Late fall can make for interesting fishing trips, as the weather can vary greatly from beautiful days in the 70s to cold, rainy and windy days with temperature in the 30s. While it may be getting cold, the fishing is just starting to heat up as winter approaches. Late fall is the best time to be out trying to catch some bass, as the lake starts to cool. Because of the dropping water temperatures, many of the fish can be found in the shallow parts of the lake, so do not go for the deep waters. Many professional anglers refer to Lake of the Ozarks in the late fall as some of the best top water bites in the country! 

Watch For The Fall Lake Turnover

While fall is a great time to visit the Lake of the Ozarks to go fishing, there is one thing anglers need to watch out for the annual fall turnover. During the summer months, the lake separates into three layers. These layers consist of a warm top layer, a thermocline in the middle and a cool bottom layer. When the fall weather cools the top portion of the lake, the layers will start to mix together. This makes the water very unstable, which makes it very difficult to catch fish. Luckily for you, the lake is over 90 miles long, so it doesn't occur over the entire lake at the same time. If you find that the fall turnover is affecting your fishing, just move to another area and you will probably have better luck. During the late fall fishing the turnover is usually complete, and you will hopefully catch tons of fish!

Benefits Of Using A Property Management Company At The Lake Of The Ozarks

Having a good relationship with your property management company is a very important. At Keys to the Lake, we listen to our clients. We pride ourselves on and are committed to our exceptional service and the quality of your Lake dwelling. We familiarize ourselves with your circumstances, lease property criteria and future real estate goals, which are all critical to helping you achieve the Lake lifestyle you desire. Although we focus on upscale homes, condos, apartments and commercial development, we enjoy matching all property types to a myriad of desired lifestyles and budgets. Here are just a few reasons why you should consider hiring a trusted property management company at the Lake of the Ozarks to manage your Lake property.


Better Screening Process


At Keys to the Lake, we deal with tenants on a regular basis, so we know how the screening process works. We can help screen out problem tenants, as we can spot potential red flags when reviewing applicants. Having higher quality tenants can bring in renters who will pay rent on time, will be in your property longer and will hopefully cause fewer problems and less wear on your property. 

Avoid Legal Issues


It only takes one problem tenant to cause significant legal and financial issues. When you use a professional property management company at the Lake of the Ozarks, we can help make sure you are not leaving yourself vulnerable to a potential lawsuit. Avoiding just one lawsuit can more than pay for the property management fees and spare you the time and money spent in court. 

Point of Contact For Tenant


If there is something wrong with the property, it is not always convenient or possible for the owner to come over and inspect it for themselves, especially if they are out of state. One of the biggest advantages of hiring a property management company is that we are available to address problems and can arrange for a service provider to repair or replace the item. Since we are close to the property, we can quickly get the issue resolved.

Make Things Easy


Whether you have a long-term rental or a vacation rental, managing the property takes a lot of time. If you use Keys to the Lake as your property management company, we can not only look out for your property, but we can also take care of all the details for you including collect late fees, deal with complaints and repairs, prepare the property for new tenants and more. 

The Best Property Management Company at the Lake of the Ozarks


When every little thing means everything, Keys to the Lake is the premier choice of discriminating clients. In a crowded world, we know you will find Keys to the Lake is a voice, not an echo. Whether you are needing property management for your vacation or long term rental, we can help. In addition to property management, we also offer real estate, long-term and vacation rentals at the Lake of the Ozarks. We give our clients the peace of mind that things will be done right the first time and on time.
