    Love to Trout fish Taneycomo

    Habit for Humanity type projects

    Most rewarding experience as a hobby to tie flies in the evening and catch and release fish the next morning in one of the best fisheries in the USA.

Better late than never.

Short trip to taney fishing 2 hours on oct 1 and rained out .... sheets of rain just as the fish were turning on for me.
I went through all midge patterns with little success and finally began to hook up with brown san jaun worm at outlet 2 and # 18 hare's ear which was working well .... too well as the crowd kept getting closer and closer toward where I was getting bit. I gave it to them and moverd to outlet 1 and the San jaun worm was working again just around the bend past the overhanging tree drifting just off the grass edge with a 1/80 brown jig under it. I netted a real nice rainbow 18" and full of color, girth and fight. In getting it released I broke off the tail of the san jaun and started to tie on another when it started sprinkle. I move under the tree and thought it might soon stop WRONG ...it began coming down in sheets and I got soaked hearing aids and all. Still worth all of the effort.
BTW just on the bend back into the outlet another angler was really doing well with a black wolly bugger throwing straight out and then stripping into the slow water at the end of the outlet. He broke off his last on and I offered to give him one but he was smarter than me and left when the sprinkles started.
Fished the next day out of a boat from Phils but the wind was terrible and they were running lots of water so it was a difficult day but I did manage to catch several nice rainbows in the seam behind lookout island. I caught 4 more downstream floating back to the dock but the wind seemed to be blowing me to the side just as I was getting bit. Lost lots of fish that way but landed this nice one on the shallow side near Andy's. The tape is backwards but it measured 18" but I wanted to get him back into the stream asap since it was a hassle landing in the fast current that he kept going to.
