Best place for Sucker fishing - March

Recommended Posts

Hello Crew, 

I am planning an early March fishing trip to Taneycomo. Staying  few miles down from the landing. We have had success with suckers fishing on light rigs with worms in the past, but we always went in February, not March. It almost seems the past few years have even gotten slower. Where is the best place to fish for White Suckers in early March on Taneycomo? How does the population of sucker seem to be this year? 

My best guess is big long channels before creeks, as they are staging for spawn. 

Thank you in advance.

I was wondering the same thing. I was considering Grabbing them. Here we have Redhorse.

We have always just caught them while fishing crawlers or corn for trout. Most of the time that is off of Lazy valleys dock or up near short Creek I’ve never never went down stream and targetted them anywhere special. I don’t think the numbers are like they used to be because we don’t seem to catch mearly as many as we used too.

Thanks @Seth We have caught several just down from Lazy valley, but like you mentioned it seems the numbers have went down. The limit is 20 per person, and it would be nothing to catch 25-30 nice ones as a group. I think the last few years we only got 5 or 6 as a group. I believe snagging season starts March 15th, so we might be a little too early to cruise the creeks on high banks. I guess all I can do is try. Thank you for the feed back.

Gigging on Taneycomo has become more popular and I'm sure that it has definitely had an impact on the numbers.
