Table Rock - Labor Day 2012

Figured I'd start this thread and see if anyone will be in the area. I'll be at the Timbers for the weekend. I'm leaving KC after work, so I probably won't get down to the area until 7 or so, but I'll hopefully get to do a little skiing/boarding before the sun falls that night. I'm staying with a friend of mine, and they have a big Cobalt, so that's what I'll be on during the days. But in the mornings, and at night (granted I'm not hammered from daytime activities), I want to try to get out on the water and enjoy my boat.

Anyone else going down and maybe want to try to meet up at some point? I'm bringing the old Stars & Stripes down for her first trip at the Rock. Been down there many years, but never with my own boat.

Don't know if I'll be down there that weekend or not. We typically try to go down every other weekend or so and just got back from a week long vacation down there. The water is almost 8' down and very warm. I like the warm part, but watch out for trees and islands that you normally would not see. We normally camp at Campbell Point or stay at a house in the same area.

Wow, 8 feet? That's pretty far down. I remember it being so high that we could stand in the bow and touch that 39 highway bridge only 5 or 6 years ago. Maybe we'll get some rain before then.

We have a place near the bridge at Shell Knob. We went down 7/20-7/23. Water is down at least 8 feet, water temp was 85-88 degrees. True, there are some low spots, but they are easy to spot or marked with a bouy. We have a solid orange X9 and will be down 8/31-9/4. We hang out on the King's River arm, Big Bay and the area around Aunt's Creek. I'll keep an eye out for ya. If you see us... Wave with all of your fingers!

Ha, you're in Kansas City too? What lake do you go to around here?

I know you were asking the op, but we don't go to any other lakes around here. Just not worth it for us. We can be on the water in 3.5-4 hours and find water to ski on most any time of the day. Allthough with the lake being down, it makes it hard to ski where we usually like to.

If you go East to point 21, there is an island on the North side of the lake at the mouth of a large cove with some boat docks. You will see the trees just to the south of a 20 or so slip dock, but the island is about 50 yards south (closer to the main channel) of the trees. It is just now showing and is about 8" out of the water. It is not a marked island, but someone did put a boat bumper on it just before it started to be visible. If you do any night cruising, avoid the shoreline on the north side around this area.

We don't boat much in KC - been to Clinton Res. in Lawrence a few times. We have a nice place on the water at Shell Knob by the bridge. Water is clear and the people at the Lake of the Ozarks are at the Lake of the Ozarks. WE LOVE "THE ROCK"

I live here in Shell Knob just up from the Timbers. The lake is down but the boarding & skiing is still good. If you go into one of the coves watch for the trees & low spots as people have said above. I'm not sure what the water temp is but we tied up right across from Timbers yesterday & it felt great (might have something to do with the fact that it was 105+). We will be on the water for Labor Day & any chance we get between now & then. Our boat is a green & white 205v with a yellow top.

Awesome, as long as I can ski/board... I'll be happy.
