Fly Fishing is “Hot” on Taneycomo July 28 2011
The last few days we have seen low water in the morning until noon. Who knows why, but I like it!! It makes for some great fishing and from fishing the previous floods I’ve started to adapt to all types of conditions. You can tell fly fishing is “Hot” on Taneycomo anytime we have long periods of high water and then it shuts down these trout go on a midge “frenzy”. The river shrinks and the fish get condensed so trout are easier to catch because they are potted up in groups cruising along the banks looking for midges and terrestrials.
It might be hot, but fly fishing remains “HOT” on Taneycomo
Has Taney changed for the better or for the worst due to the high water flooding?
From what I can see, it looks like it has become more of a river, all the way through the entire regulated zone, from the dam to Fall Creek. There is so much more to do down behind the house’s at Point Royale. The gravel as filled in this whole area for about 200 yards, which has made a lot more wading spots.
From what I can see there is a lot more shoal water and faster runs for tons of trout to hold in. This definitely should give the fisherman more to do downstream, if they can find a way to get down there and fish it. And trust me, I would. I should have more info to share once we get lower water for longer periods of time.
