Lake Taneycomo Fishing Report
July 2, 2010
Is low water
on the way?
It’s really hard to say considering the way June panned out on Lake Taneycomo. Anymore you can’t rely on the updated schedule for the next days generation. The whole month of June the corp got it wrong. They would say one thing and totally do a different routine. Even the last two days at Taney they said it would be off longer than when they started. The good thing is we are definitely in store for longer periods of low water. The lakes are all almost back down to power pool and that says something considering we’ve had high water this same time for the last few years. Hot summer days and no rain have been the norm so I can’t see why we won’t have low water in the mornings before it gets really hot. But once it does they will probably run light units for power demand. It should be great drift boat water on all three tailwaters.
And the fact that hopper season is in full swing, why wouldn’t you want to bang the banks for countless miles having chances hooking 16-20 inch browns. Streamer fishing should also be hot for the first few hours in the morning. Sounds like to me you should start planning your trip down to the Ozarks to do some awesome fly fishing. I would say there’s something to do for all levels of fly fishing. If you’ve never experienced some great hopper dropper fishing this would be the time to learn. Take my word for it, July is going to be a great month.
The “3D Reports” page is finally done and everyone’s bio’s are complete so you should start seeing some more reports from the field. Mostly Taney reports, but they also fish creeks and other tailwaters when they can. The newsletter will be sent out next week so be looking for that also. For those of you who have signed up for the newsletters and haven’t received your free fly in the mail make sure you email me at [email protected] your address and I’ll get those sent out to you. Thanks for being a part of Fly’s And Guides and never hesitate to drop me an email if you have any questions on fly fishing here in the Ozarks.
