Lilley’s Lake Taneycomo fishing report, July 20

Posted by Phil Lilley on July 20th, 2017


Generation has been consistent the past few weeks. Dam officials have run “fish water” from about midnight until noon each day and then up to three or four units until late at night. With temperatures in the mid 90’s, Table Rock’s turbines are turning out much needed electricity. read more…

Big River: Nice float, but what might have been…

big river 5

I want to really thank Brian Jones for hooking me up with a landowner who has an access in the absolute perfect spot, first of all.  Because there’s this section of Big River with otherwise very inconvenient access points, making for floats that are either too short or too long.  But this private access is right at the end of the “good water”, and cuts off about 4 miles of “bad water” off the float.  I used it for the first time today. read more…

I mentioned in the post I just finished about looking for crayfish with the Nature Conservancy lady, and not finding any.  But a couple weeks ago, Mitch Fields and I were on a float trip on the upper river, and we stopped and spent a bit of time in one little spot hunting crawdads, and found four different species in an area the size of the average living room.  Which was pretty cool.  And also brings up a bit of a mystery. read more…

With the heat of summer upon us, the generators are kicking in.  We’ve only seen low 90’s so far, but during the week the dam operators are wasting no time bringing the power up to max on the hot days.  This morning they were up to four units, bringing the lake up to  708.5 feet before 7 a.m.. read more…

Table Rock: Mr. Babler was dead on!

Posted by Phil Lilley on June 20th, 2017


I’ve been reading a lot on the forum but wasn’t able to provide anything beneficial as I haven’t been down for so long. I got to make it down for a few days and followed BB’s suggestions. I primarily fished secondary points on the lower end. I fished a half or 3/4 oz jig pbj or green pumpkin with twin tail grubs or a shake head with chiggers craw. read more…
