2020 MDC Survey, Lake Taneycomo

Interesting stuff there.  A few take aways for me:

1) Did we really have high enough water in 2020 to "significantly deplete" the brown trout numbers?  

2)It was pretty early in the fall yet for the browns to move up perhaps, they are sampling only 3.5 miles of a 22 mile lake

3)Triploid Brown trout don't always make that spawning run up like others so perhaps they are more highly populated in the other 16.5 miles of the lake since they don't run up and aren't really sampled very far down?  We all know that Cooper to Monkey hot spot this year was, they may not leave that area plus who knows what is even further down that that?

4)MORE Triploid's on the way baby!!!  That means hopefully plenty of monsters for years and years to come.  Thank you Shane and MDC!

Browns move out of the lake to Bull Shoals during high water.  The samples show every year there's high water the number of browns go down.

They sample the same water every year.  That's so when they compare numbers they should show some consistency.

One of these times you guys who fish down lake need to catch a monster... maybe that will force us guys who always go up lake to try further down.  

Travis I know you fish down quite a bit,  time to break that 30in mark!
