For the trophy trout enthusiast I have great news! Some very large rainbows are definately here. Although larger brown trout have been showing up, the monsters are still a week or two away. I’ve been seeing and landing 20″ plus fish, but it is still in the pre-spawn stages for the browns. We had a customer come in and thank us for advice that contributed to him landing a 12-13lb male brown. (Congratulations to him by the way)
It’s a great time to fish Taneycomo right now. There has been increased fishing pressure in the mornings around 9 am, but most don’t stay past lunch. We’ve been doing guide trips in the morning daily, and have been catching several nice fish. I’ve personally been fishing from lunch through to the evening. I miss most the crowds by doing so.
Water generation has been a low two generators through the week to meet power demand. Today the water is completely off. I would think it will be off through tomorrow at least. Table Rock Lake isn’t even at power pool so I believe generation will slow down through this next week.

On a final note the new fish ladder is completed and has water moving through it now. I hope the new improvements create a more fish friendly run that they can get up.
Tight lines ladies and gentleman. Get out and enjoy the outdoors! We will be with you in spirit or hopefully just downstream.
