  1. Scuds are primarily found in gravel areas of the stream and are normally in the top six feet of the stream/lake areas. They are abundant in Lake Taneycomo as most of the upper lake is gravel. As long as that gravel is kept covered with water, they will likely thrive there. They can be of any length from a size 18 up to a size 8 at times. Size varies as to the stream conditions at the time. You just need to find out what they want. I normally prefer a size 12 weighted gray scud which is no more than 1/8 inch thick when fishing Taney. Good colors are gray, tan, light brown and olive.


  2. I'm soon to be 87 and trying to stay active. I do exercise at least 30 minutes per day in addition to working around the house. I still love fly fishing and golf. Taney is my favorite fly fishing site as I have conceded the capability for long distance trips because of age. Don't know how well i will play golf this year though last year I could still play in the 80's most of the time. Had shoulder surgery 2 years ago from a torn shoulder from exercising doing 45 degree pushups leaning against a counter. I firmly believe we must stay active and exercise every day, if possible, if we want to enjoy our Senior years.

    Thought I'd start a topic to cover what's happening on the lake this week. 

    At present, they're running 20k cfs which includes 13k by turbines plus gates. The Corp said they'd be releasing up to 50k by morning. 

    Beaver is releasing gates too but I don't have cfs amounts. 

    Since they starting spilling over gates its slowed the rise at both lakes slightly, barely. Both dams will have to increase flows to keep up-question is how much. 

    Mum not sure if this will equal 2011... I am afraid it may surpass it. 

    We are sandbagging. Our dock will be closed till the water recedes. 

    Phil: Thanks for all of the reports about Table Rock and Taney. Wishing you a minimum of recovery problems. If I can help in any way, please call anytime. Glad to hear they are reducing flow -- just hope they don't lower it too fast before the lakes are pulled down.

    I was amazed at the charts indicating Table Rock rose 15 feet in just two days. That's a lot of water.

    I expect we will see many new changes in the stream bed and water flow when the water level returns to normal flow. Hope you will give us updates, when possible.

    Hopefully the scuds are still in abundance and haven't been wiped out with the strong currents.
