Finally was able down to get down when the water was off. My third trip down in the last 4 weeks and they have had the water running the other 2 times.

Got down late/early into Friday morning, fished all night until they blew the horn at 6am. Caught fish on Black/Brown PMS, Black Woolies, and White San Juan Worm/Pink Egg flies under a float with a glow stick from near Outlet 1 down to the skinny water.

Saturday fishing was rather tough, Sunday was a good day for catching Browns! Crazy how much difference a day makes. Tan Scuds in Size 20,22 were the ticket. All the female browns were absolutely chunks!

Below the dam was a zoo day and night! At one time I counted 12-15 headlights on as far down stream as I could see while fishing near the cable.

 

Tight lines!

You know I think alot of this is Covid, fishing and outdoor related recreation has exploded this year.. Have ya tried to buy tackle? Finding some 1/8th ounce egg sinkers was like finding a diamond in

Let’s be honest with ourselves.  This forum and our own reports have had a lot, or at least somewhat, to do with the popularity of Taney.

 The pictures i'm seeing online of the trophy area when the water is off is mind blowing.  Looks like a zoo up top!

It's like a zoo that the lion keeper forgot to lock the gate. Combat fishing at it's best. Come locked and loaded.

I saw many dead browns laying on the bottom from the big hole down to almost the upper boat ramp.After watching the way most fish are handled by the anglers I can see why there is a number of fish that die,ie beaching the fish,squeezing the fish for pics,holding them out of the water for quite some time,tossing them back in the water,etc,etc.

I have to disagree with your summary. I think they are being trampled to death.

It’s definitely a zoo up too! The amount of disrespectful people is absolutely absurd. The amount of people that I seen mishandle fish is just sad to see on multiple occasions. People just drag them out of the water and let them lay on the rocks and then squeeze the fish with a death grip waiting to take a picture. Then they wonder why the fish bellies up and won’t swim off on its own and they just leave it there to die and back to fishing they go.

That's most of the reason I haven't been up there fishing in a couple of years.  I remember may be night fishing 2018...

All week last week, there was ONE guy in a v-bottom boat boating from below the Narrows, to the Narrows and I think up to Lookout -- getting out and wading.  He was the ONLY one doing it.  He had a mile of awesome wading water all to himself.

I have mixed feelings about even writing about it... because I don't want the word to get out.  But there again I have been talking about it for years and still... no one wades this area.

I personally don't really care about real big trout.  I'll take those 15 to 22 inchers all day long and lots and lots of solitude.
