We have had an awesome fall fishing time here on Taneycomo. The brown trout spawn was earlier than past years, but the larger fish numbers were up quite a bit.
On my guide trips we have hooked into several large fish, just not always landing them. This past weekend fishing was somewhat tougher than normal, but I really think oxygen levels were extremely low. I saw several dead sculpins and trout. Table Rock Lake is also turning over, which affects it also.
We have finally been getting a reprieve from all the water generation. It had been running non stop since May. Right now it is generally off till about 1-2 pm running about a 1 generator till anywhere from 3pm – 9pm, then off again.
Wading we have been striping sculpins, or drifting midges, also using scuds, especially hot is the newer UV scud.
Things are starting to wind down on the spawn, so if you haven’t been fishing, you need to get out!
