Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, February 25

Posted by Phil Lilley on February 25th, 2015

Generation patterns on Lake Taneycomo have remained about the same.  They follow our weather, or at least our night time temperature range.  If it’s pretty cold at night, in the mornings, they’re running 3-4 units until about 10 a.m..  If it’s not too cold, they run 1-2 units will about 9 a.m..  Weekends are a crap shoot.  Water could be off or could be running a half unit all day, and night.  No way to tell until Southwest Power posts the online schedule on Friday. read more…

Taneycomo rainbow

It’s getting a little difficult to predict what water generation patterns on Lake Taneycomo will be. As this chart below indicates, the Southwest Power Administration ran water continuously through the weekend, then went back to running a little in the morning and then in the evening. Personally, I like this pattern, but I also like when dam operators switch it up and run at least a half unit all day. That’s my favorite current for fishing. read more…

White River report

White River 2

by Hamilton~~ Kinda of an odd generation pattern lately on the White River; high flow for a few hours and minimum flow the rest of the time. Not really what I like, but they don’t ask me. Predictions were for continued pulse generation, but the weather while awful wasn’t impossible to endure and so I went. read more…

Taneycomo Jan 15

Trout fishing for rainbows on Lake Taneycomo has been pretty close to “excellent” the last couple of weeks and I don’t use the word excellent very often to describe fishing. I was once told to say fishing was excellent would be say everyone is catching fish. That’s pretty much what it is right now. And the quality of rainbows is the best many anglers have seen it in many years. read more…

Another Ned Rig Trick

Posted by Don Borgschulte on January 5th, 2015


by Don Borgschulte ~~ I’ve been fishing the Ned Rig almost a year now, and it has moved up to 2nd place for me in terms of a “gotta use it every time out” bait. The old Fish Doctor is still hanging in there in 1st, but is losing ground fast! read more…
