Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, August 30

Weather change!! This is a good fishing thing. Cooler temperatures here on Lake Taneycomo mean cool breezes (and chop on the water!), a little rain, clouds and less generation in the afternoon, all good for fishing and fishermen. But what are our trout biting on? read more…

Agnew’s Black River Fish and Float

Posted by Al Agnew on August 28th, 2014

black river

I heard it explained one time that a 20% chance of thundershowers doesn’t so much mean that there’s a 20% chance that it will rain; it’s probably going to rain somewhere in the region, but there’s a 20% chance that it will rain on your head. I was thinking about that early in the afternoon yesterday as I watched a big thundercloud appear to the east of the part of Black River I was on. I don’t particularly like doing overnight floats when there’s a chance of thunderstorms, but the forecast had said that there was a 20% chance yesterday for the Lesterville area, and 60% today. I decided to take the chance on the 20% with the plan to get off the river by around noon today. read more…

On Fridays during the summer, my employer let’s you take a half day if you work an extra hour the rest of the weekdays, so with a forecast for sun and a heat index of 105 I figured what better way to spend it than by going fishing! Well I wasn’t too excited for the heat, but I’ve had things going on with the little ones at home the past couple of weekends and I hadn’t been out fishing for a while. Today fishing sounded good, regardless of the temps I was going to wet a line. read more…


First Norfork brown trout

Posted by Phil Lilley on August 28th, 2014

norfork brown

Took a little weekend trip with a few buddies of mine up to the White River last weekend. We decided to run up to the Norfork River one morning and fish it for a few hours. It was new waters for me, but I had a good farmer buddy show me the ropes. He was fishing in another boat ahead of me. We floated down from the darn ramp and fished about a mile and a half of the river. The dock hole I guess you could call it. My first brown on the Norfork. by Ccox1982 on OAF Forum

Started fishing Beaver Lake little before 6. Wish now that I had gotten out just a tad sooner. Ended around 8:30, had it been a weekend would have stayed out longer. read more…

Beaver Lake May 25

It is the last big hoorah of the summer season, but with the storm forecast the lake will either be a crowded or vacant all bets are off. read more…


Peter’s Creek Float, Alaska

Posted by Phil Lilley on August 21st, 2014

My recent trip to Alaska was a working trip. My friends scratch their heads and ask, “How can a trip to Alaska be working, when it comes to fishing?” Well, when you help guide a group of eight clients on a four-day, three-night float trip down a remote river, that’s work — albeit the most fulfilling kind for me!
