Lake Taneycomo

Tip of the week 

With streamer patterns, use intermediate sink leaders or sinking tip lines with 4X tippet and cast across the stream on and allow the fly to sink and swing with the current. In high water indicator rigs with heavy shot and dropper rigs with San Juan worms fish deep are a good way to go. With no generation look for moving water, drop offs and deeper water. Use 6x tippet and the lightest indicator possible, good choices are big dry flies and palsas. Zebra midges are a food staple at Taneycomo, but plan to change colors and depths to keep the fish hooking up. These fish turn on and off to color depending on where you are fishing the river. Scuds work well in the outlet area near the dam and hatchery.

Seven-day forecast 

Chances for scattered thunderstorms this evening and again tomorrow afternoon. This will be followed by a cool down (currently it is in the 70s) to the mid to upper 50s through Saturday. by Sunday, we expect to see 70s gain and upper 60s to 70s through Thursday of next week. It is just the time of the year when fishing is very good. If you can get on or into the water, expect good fishing. Weather is going to have an impact of what you fish when. Midges and scuds are always a good bet. You can always call us for an update or keep checking the schedules and real time for generation. A link to that information and phone numbers is available on our website.
