Lake Taneycomo

Tip of the week 
Techniques 

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 warm several days ahead. Temperatures into the 70s and even 80s for the weekend. This with the trees starting to color up will make for a beautiful setting to stand in the water and catch fish. Fishing should just continue to improve. Seeing several nice fish moving up for spawn. Generation has been generally a low to full one or off. Yesterday they ran a full one most of the day. Today, there is no generation and the same is projected for tomorrow until late in the day. 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.
