    TR ongoing for 2nd -4th

    It was a slow but fun night fishing. The water was off most of the night and we were able to do some fly fishing at Rebar. Today it looks like rain, maybe that will fuel some better fishing.

    Taney Trip

    Good morning fellow anglers! I will be taking a trip to my favorite fishing hole this weekend. Can anyone give me a report on how things are on Taneycomo? We will mostly be wade fishing just below the dam. We will be doing alot of night fishing, but I will probably fish most of the weekend. Sleep can wait till monday!

    Wily, You are so right, they do grow up fast. I am so excited for this trip. It will be our first father sons trip to go trout fishing. Memories to last a lifetime!

    Thanks for the advice. No, we didn't get out there. Wish we would have though. I spent the winter fishing Taney.

    I was considering just using a normal bobber for them, would this work? I thought that it would be easier to cast and see.

    I am taking my two boys, 10 and 9 to Bennett this weekend for their first trout fishing trip. They will be fishing from the bank since they don' t have waders yet. Does anyone have any tips or tricks for giving kids a successful trip? I really want them to have a good time.

    Wading Taney

    My cousin and I are planning on making a trip this weekend to catch some of the fun that appears to be going on!! What does it look like as far as wading near the outlets? We are not going to able to afford a boat this trip so need to be able to get in the water.

    Lake Taneycomo High Water Reports

    Phil, I love what you said in your video about the resort being God's! You are so right. We all love it so. . . but come what may, you will have helpers! And you have God's blessing on your life!

    New Jig...will it catch trout?

    A couple of weeks ago I threw something similar. It was an olive drab head with black underhackle and olive maribou. It caught a couple. One thing you may consider is less thread wrapping. I try and keep mine as short and as close to the head as i can.

    Trip report ongoing

    What a great trip!!! There was more hooked this weekend than just the fish! I am hooked on this stretch of water for sure. A huge thank you to Phil and his staff at Lililes Landing. They were so welcoming and the resort was awesome. Plus, the new G3's are incredible boats! I can't forget to thank my partner DJ for helping to make this an unforgettable trip. Luckily I didn't throw him out of the boat. Got pretty close a couple times by going when he wasn't ready. . . .but that's another story. The only bad thing about our trip was leaving the fish in the freezer at the resort. I hope someone on the staff has a good supper with them! My wife sure gave me what for! She likes here trout fillets!
