Cooler weather has brought less generation to Taneycomo.  The water has been running for an hour or two in the evenings and that’s about all.  That makes fishing off the docks and wading below the dam more enjoyable for sure. read more…

The brown trout run on Lake Taneycomo has been, well, suspect the last few years.  Seems like conditions have not lined up right each fall season for the big browns to move up.  But this year it seems like we are seeing a big push of trophy browns below the dam, and a few of them have been caught. read more…
