Brief Taneycomo Fly Fishing Update for 6-22-11
My readers deserve to know about the interesting dynamics coupled with the unique cicada fishing still going on at Lake Taneycomo
I know I promised not to write so many back to back reports, but I wanted my avid followers, along with southwest Missouri fly fishing locals to know that you can get in about five or six hours of excellent fishing before the high water starts in the afternoon on upper Lake Taneycomo. In fact, there is some good wading possible during the mornings off several Islands – yes, with boat access; there is actually an enjoyable wading bite at first light. After the big rains we had just the other evening, the cicadas became quiet and it was rare to see the trout crashing the surface. But an end of the magic is apparently not in the works, as we had a great time fishing big dries on Taneycomo just today, and Cody hooked into nice brown on the first cast. One would think that the local anglers would be talking all about the cicada hatch, but I have heard virtually noting, and I do my best to stay in the loop. If the lower water and big bugs are prevalent for the next month or two, it is going to be a summer that will be remembered for quite awhile. As always, call or email me in the evenings (as I’m out on the river almost every day) for daily information, and I love to chat with my fellow anglers.
