Since the last rain Table Rock has come up to just over 918 feet above sea level. This has had the Corps of Engineers and the Southwestern Power Administration running all four generators twenty-four hours a day. This has made Taneycomo clear up and the water is moving pretty good.

I fished the trophy area above Fall Creek earlier this week and caught just a couple of fish. I was using a white shad pattern, dragging it on the bottom just like you would drag Powerbait. Doing this allows you to use an ultra light spinning rod and get to the bottom easier than a fly rod. I also did ok on silver with a blue back Rebel minnow dragging it the same way.

Fishing below fall creek has been a little better than in the trophy area. I fished a couple of days this week and did well on orange and white Gulp on the bottom. The fishing did get a little tough later in the morning. Bill Babler, one of the Lilleys’ Guides said, the best time has been from light until the sun hits the water.
