Lake Taneycomo fishing report, October 26

Posted by Darin Schildknecht on October 26th, 2012

The Southwestern Power Administration has been back and forth the last few days on how many generators they are running. Earlier this week the ran one half of a generator all day but later this week they did not run any until noon or around two in the afternoon. Also, the recording at the dam which tells you how many are running has not been correct either. read more…


Babler’s Table Rock fishing report, October 25

Posted by Phil Lilley on October 25th, 2012

Did not get on the water till 9:30 and fished some suspended trees right off the bat with a spook. Most people have their boats between where I was fishing and these trees and the bank. Looks like I’m casting into an abis. First run with the spook on 68 degree water was a slam and a very nice keeper K. there were 3 following him in trying to snatch the spook from his upper jaw. All looked to be cookie cutter Shell Knob Keeps at about 16″. read more…


Trip Report, Lake Taneycomo October 24

Posted by Phil Lilley on October 24th, 2012

Set aside yesterday (Tuesday) for fishing. Thought about heading to a different place I decided to stay home and fish Taneycomo. Wanted to wade all morning but the Corp decided to run water all day so boat fishing I did. Eric Evans (ciRe on the forum) wanted to go along so we loaded up and headed uplake about 8 am. read more…


Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, October 21

Posted by Phil Lilley on October 21st, 2012

Generation – no much with the exception of one day this week when they ran quite a bit all day. It did clean the lake out, at least the upper end. They’ve been running “fish water” in the evenings, about 2 hours of a half unit. Check the SPA schedule, but don’t rely on it 100%. They do change it without notice. read more…


Stacey the Jika Rig King

Posted by Ned Kehde on October 17th, 2012

During the second week in July, we posted a report on the Finesse News Network that caught the attention of Stacey King of Reeds Spring, Missouri.

The gist of the report was that an angler from St. Louis was using a jika rig, as well as one of the standard Midwest finesse rigs, to inveigle an impressive array of largemouth, smallmouth and spotted bass from the confines of Table Rock Lake, which is King’s home waterway. read more…


Spring River fishing report

Posted by Mark Crawford on October 17th, 2012

Water levels are running at 243 cfs at the spring and water clarity has been clear. Over the last week the fishing has been excellent on overcast, cloudy days and tuff on really nice sunny days. Y2k’s, snails and olive woolies have been the hot flies this week. Red and hot pink trout magnets are working great with spinning rods. This week the leaves have begun to fall and on windy days can be a problem when they cover the river. Just remember the leaves sometimes have ants and bugs on them. If you see trout that look like they are feeding on the leaves, then they are probably eating ants on the leaves.

What I carry in my fishing vest

Posted by John Berry on October 17th, 2012

Possibly the most unique piece of equipment used by fly fishers is the fishing vest. In this sport, we literally wear our tackle box. While many anglers carry their gear in a chest pack or fanny pack, most wear a vest. I wear mine on my wade fishing trips and carry it on the back of my seat when I am in the boat. I know that, whatever the problem I encounter on stream, there is a solution in one of the many pockets on my vest. The fishing vest that we use is credited to the immortal Lee Wulff, possibly the most influential angler this sport has ever seen. read more…


Berry’s White River fishing report, October 18

Posted by John Berry on October 17th, 2012

During the past week, we have had several rain events (over three inches in Cotter), cool temperatures and heavy winds. Fall is here and all of the lakes are up a bit as a result of recent rains. The lake level at Bull Shoals Dam rose one tenth of a foot to rest at six and four tenths feet below power pool of 654.00 feet. This is forty seven and four tenths feet below the top of flood pool.
