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 

Looks like a cool down over the next 7 days. Mid 90s and upper 80s are in the forecast With a possibility of some moisture by mid week...let's hope! So far, the generation schedule continues to be off in the morning, then on some time late morning or early afternoon. That trend will probably continue. It was pretty much off this past weekend and fishing was very good.. We will see basically, the same patterns and techniques working. I would throw a stimulator or hopper pattern out there again the edges as they should start being a player any day now. Good oxygen level and water temperatures are in the mid 40s. 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.
