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 

Fishing with no or low generation has been great. Stripping something olive, such as a wooly, the tiger tail, JQ, or crackleback has been good.. Of course, the tan or gray scuds are a sure bet, especially up nearer the dam and in the smaller sizes. Midges are back in full bloom now that the water is clearing. Best midge all his week has been the Ruby 2. Nice quality fish being caught in the 16 inch and up range. If you are drifting out of a boat, tri the big ruby with either a San Juan worm or the Ruby 2 midge. You can always call us for an update or keep checking the schedules and real time for generation.
