Low water on Taneycomo
We are still seeing low water periods, but to predict is still the question. As of recently, we we’re seeing the water off on the weekends and running during the week, but for some fluke deal they didn’t turn the water on until 2pm on Tuesday. Now they’re back to running. If it’s any type of trend I would say low water is a definite on Saturday and Sunday, but not all day. Night fishing opportunities can happen if you plan to start at midnight. Again only on the weekend will you have a chance.
I know I keep saying this, but Taney is fishing awesome. The trout are big and fat and are fighting hard. I’ll be honest I still think fishing downstream is better than upstream. Not just because of the crowds. But because of the size and numbers. We caught both fish you see in the pictures between Trophy Run (old KOA campground) and Point Royale. We’re hooking some 18-20 inch rainbows up top, but the hidden treasure is downstream. If you would like to know more about Darren’s 23 inch rainbow you can read it here. I also had the opportunity to fish with the other Darin and he also fished Dogwood Canyon if anyone is interested in fishing there.
Yes, I went ahead and did it again. I’m in the process of launching a brand new website that I think everyone will find even more user friendly. Once done you’ll find a new flame set off with me as far as getting serious about updating the fly tying side of the website. That’s another true passion of mine and I have so many more patterns I want to share. It’s still about a month or so out, but I can’t be more excited. It’s going to be INSANE, I promise you that. I’m finally putting my vision to reality.
