Fishin in the dark

Recommended Posts

Got the green light to fish tomorrow morning. I havent been to Taneycomo in almost a year, which is just sad... I'm going to the trophy area early early with high hopes of a walter. Any advice for fishing this area in the dark? Baits, tips, gear to bring...

Thanks in advance. Super excited to get out there!

With this flow you're going to pretty much be bank fishing.  Agree with Duane, start up by cable and work your way down fishing the seam.

Jerk baits would be my lure of choice, although my last couple of Walters down there have come on white jigs.

Good luck!

Thank you guys for the input! I ended up with 4 rainbows today; 3 on a jig i tied and then I tried the flyrod thing for a while at outlet 1 and got one on a grey scud that I also tied. The first two on the jig were really nice fish. Setup was a 1/8 oz. VMC Mooneye Jig tied with 3 colors of bucktail. Fished it on a light action flueger combo with 4 lb vanish fluoro.

Felt great to get back out!

Hey one other thing I thought was kinda cool from yesterday. I snagged up on a rock to the point where i had to do the bow and arrow trick...immediately after i snapped the line and freed the jig, i started reeling up the slack and whack! Scored my second fish. Pays to be on the bottom i guess
