Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, July 28

Posted by Phil Lilley on July 29th, 2015

It’s been a while since my last written fishing report, mainly because water conditions and fishing hasn’t changed that much in the last few weeks. If anything, catching has become tougher for most people. The best dock fishing and wade fishing below the dam has been narrowed down to late night and early morning — and I mean 11 p.m. until 5 a.m.. That’s when the water has been shut down, at least during weekdays. Weekends, dam operators have been running less water. read more…

Dickey Trio - June

We’ve had a pretty wild summer!  Flood gates, warm, fast water and lots of great fishing — IF you can get out in a boat and drift.  That’s the only problem with a tailwater fishery… you’re at the mercy of generation and rain runoff. read more…

Yesterday marked the first day that the water was completely down, with no generation on Lake Taneycomo, in more than a month. This was a welcomed sight for at least fly fishermen who like to wade below the dam. I think this establishes a new pattern we might see for a few days.  We might see even less generation for the weekend, too. read more…

We have had a wild pre-spring season so far.  Several big rain events have sent lots of water into the White River system, which goes right through to Lake Taneycomo.  It’s not unusual to see this. I keep reminding myself, “my lake is a tailwater.”  We have to deal with whatever is sent our way. read more…

March 5 rainbow 530

Generation patterns on Lake Taneycomo have stayed basically the same in the last month. The dam has been generating water most mornings until about 9 or 10 a.m., then off for the rest of the day before running a little some evenings, but not every day. Weekends are still a big guess. Most weekends there has not be running water. With warmer temperatures around the corner, we might see less generation unless Table Rock’s lake level jumps up. Then we should experience hard generation as spring approaches. read more…
