See brown trout leap at Lake Taneycomo

Posted by newswriter on October 11th, 2012

You know it’s autumn in the Ozarks when leaves start to change color, temperatures start to fall … and brown trout start to leap upstream out of Lake Taneycomo. That’s right, I said “leap,” not swim. When brown trout make their way up the steps of the Missouri Department of Conservation’s fish ladder each fall at Lake Taneycomo in their annual attempts to spawn, it can turn your head. read more…

Trees along Lake Taneycomo are starting to turn their fall colors. Some have said we may not have a colorful autumn because of the low rainfall this summer but I don’t think so. It’s looking like the beginnings of a beautiful fall season. read more…

Spring River fishing report, September 20

Posted by Mark Crawford on September 20th, 2012

Water levels are running at 443 cfs and water clarity is clear. The cool weather has been really good for the fishing over the last week. Bug hatches have been heavy and the trout have really been biting well. My snail fly and mayfly emergers have been the flies for the last week. It would be nice to have some dry fly action but mainly when hatches are coming off the water, emergers work the best. A weighted fly with a high stick, swinging presentation is the ticket. We are starting to catch brown trout once again with this cooler weather also. Dark color trout magnets and roostertails are doing well for spin fisher’s.
