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.

Got out this afternoon for a few hours. Wind out of the south about 15, party cloudy. Wanted to try scuds against the bluff bank below Lookout. Started across from the tennis courts. Not one bite for the first hour using a brown “mink” scud. Switched to a gray “peppy” scud and picked one up immediately. Using a #12 3769 hook, weighted under a float 30 inches. Dragging it from the bank out. It swallowed the scud so lost it. Next rainbow (video) took another peppy scud, this time it was tied on a 200r #14 hook, wire segmented. Lost that scud too. read more…

We hit the road in October, with a visit to Montauk State Park, Mo., for a Healing Waters fundraiser. Then we head down to the Fly Fishing Fair in Mountain Home, Ark. We ran into a lot of friends and talked a lot of trout fishing with Mark Van Patten, Tom Timmerberg, Chris Short and Lori Sloas. And as always, John Berry offers up another Strategy for Success. Tom Goodwin,vice president of conservation for the Southern Council of Fly Fishers, joins us for Focus on Conservation.

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…
