The question has been asked, "Are the browns up below the dam on Taney yet?"  I'd say, "Yes!!"

Steve Dickey and I ran up by boat to the dam this evening for a quick trip.  With 2 units running, we started at the cable, throwing to the north side of the lake.  Steve brought his bait casting rod and had a Mega Bass stick bait on.  I had a 1/8th ounce white jig.

Before we hardly moved when both of us connected with fish and both were brown trout.  Steve's fish was bigger than mine so we netted it, took a quick pic and released it.  Then we netted mine and took a pic.

We drifted to below the boat ramp.  I was pleasantly surprised how many trout we both caught, and missed.  We made another run up to find the water dropping out and the current much slower.  It didn't seem to bother the fish much.  We still hooked and landed nice fish.

All toll we netted 7 browns, 2 over 20 inches (Steve's) and the others just under 20.  We caught quite a few small rainbows but did have 2 pushing 19 inches.

Trout were active to say the least.  And the browns, well, I'd say there's a very good number of them up there right now.

They used to be thick the last week of October and first week of November but we haven't had a normal run in 4-5 years now, I think. We'll see.
