Bald Eagle Photo ops around Branson, MO

I will be in Branson, MO during the next two weeks.
If anyone here could provide some location tips where I can catch the bald eagles diving to catch fish I'd really appreciate it. I have read about the Table Rock Dam and the Fish Hatchery. Are there any locations downstream from the dam for me to drive up close to the water to get shots of the eagles diving for fish from the water level?
Thank you.

Couple possibilities.
The overlook across Lake Taneycomo from Point Royale. Lake Rd. 165-45/Iowa Colony Rd./Acacia Club Rd. I think.
The gra el boat ramp area just up from River Poi t condos. Again, off of Acacia Club Rd.
The MDC boat ramp below the hatchery.
The MDC public fishing dock at Cooper Creek Public Access.
No guarantees, but I have seen eagles while fishing the lake in all of these areas.
One of the coolest things I have seen was across from the River Point ramp. An eagle came off his roost on the bluffs, made a couple circles around my boat. Getting up his nerve, or getting over a fear of my boat. Then swooping down to grab a wounded trout about 30' behind my boat!

The MDC encourages the reporting of sightings, and nests, so I would ask them for the best locations.

I just got an answer from another site that the nest above Fall Creek should be active. There might be an area in Fall Creek Resort across the lake from the nest that you can see it.
Got another question goi g on that site relevant to something in the PM I sent.
