Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, November 17

Posted by Phil Lilley on November 17th, 2012

Cold, crisp mornings usually means a little generation here on Taneycomo and that’s been the case. They’ve been running about one unit for a couple of hours starting at daylight, then off the rest of the day. BUT last weekend they ran water 24 hours a day both Saturday and Sunday, about one unit, and today they’ve started the same, scheduling generation all day and into the night. Flow varies from a half unit to one-and-a-half units. This might be a sign to what they will do this weekend. SPA will post their schedule later today online. read more…

A fishing hat

Posted by John Berry on November 15th, 2012

One of the most fundamental pieces of fly fishing gear is the hat. I probably wouldn’t be able to fish without a hat. I occasionally see anglers bare headed on stream and I just sit and wonder how they manage without one. A hat protects you from the sun. This is of great importance to me as I have Scots-Irish heritage and the complexion of a red head. read more…

Water has been off for the of the week this week but running today (Saturday) and that’s been the pattern for several weeks. Why? I have no idea. Water temperature is holding about 48 degrees and water quality seems to be very good for this time of year. read more…

Dickey’s Lake Taneycomo fishing report, November 9

Posted by Phil Lilley on November 10th, 2012

Steve Dickey says fly fishing is still “excellent” which I concur. Midge fly fishing is off the chart. Mornings and evening and even during the day trout are eating hatching midges and are being caught on zebra midges. Hear his report by clicking here and downloading this mp3 file.

After we posted the blog on Oct. 8 regarding Stacey King’s accomplishments with the jika rig, several members of the Finesse News Network who had experienced poor results with it said that they were going to give the jika rig another fling.

Guido Hibdon’s Guiding Service

Posted by Ned Kehde on November 1st, 2012

The legendary Guido Hibdon of Sunrise Beach, Missouri, recently obtained his United States Coast Guard guiding license, which allows him to return to his family’s roots as a multispecies guide on the Lake of the Ozarks. Guido’s guiding lineage extends across many decades. In fact, his grandfather guided anglers on the Osage River in the 1920s, and after Bagnell Dam impounded the Osage River in 1931, creating the Lake of the Ozarks, Guido’s father guided on it until he died. Guido’s brothers were also guides. read more…
