Upper Taneycomo Float Options


Recommended Posts

Are there any upper Taneycomo maps that show accesses and river mileages that I could use to plan a float? I'd like to put my raft on at the boat ramp below outlet #3 and throw a few streamers some cloudy weekday in the near future.

Also , is there anyone in the area that would do a vehicle shuttle or am I on my own there?

I appreciate any advice given , it's been a good many years since I've fished Taney and I'm just not familiar with the floating situation as I was always wading at the dam.

My maps don’t have distances but I can tell you it’s about 3 miles to Fall Creek, 3.75 to Riverpointe Ramp, 5 to our place and almost 6 to Cooper Creek Ramp. 

I can probably help you with a shuttle.

That's exactly the kind of information I was hoping for. Thank You gentlemen! 

That 5 miles to your place would be an ideal distance for a short Fall/Winter day Phil. When I get a day free to make it down I'll give you a call (with ample notice obviously) and see if we can work out something on a shuttle where I just finish at the resort. 

Thank you again for the quick response , my smallmouth fishing has slowed down considerably so I'm looking to increase my odds a little and chase trout a little more this Winter.

Are you rowing only or do you have a motor?  That’s pretty far on flat water. They haven’t been running much water lately.

I'd be rowing only. In a perfect world I'd prefer to float with a little generation because it's more conducive to chucking streamers so I'm gonna try to hit it on a day with some generation. If it just doesn't work out that way then I may very well have to choose a shorter float. Again , I'm just not familiar with the characteristics of the water down there except for the first mile below the dam.

Seems like with the options you mentioned I should be able to find one that will work regardless of generation. Funny that when I used to fish Taney alot I was always hoping for low-water...now the situation has changed and I'm wanting generation. Of course , in my experience anyway , whatever I'm hoping for I usually end up with the opposite!

If the water is off watch the wind direction too.

Hey, @Troutnut69 !

What have you been up to?  I enjoyed your blog posts of your fishing and camping expeditions for years!  Looks like you took a 5 year hiatus from posting there?  I hope all is well with you! 👍 😀

Yeah , there's not much worse than being on frogwater and trying to float South with a 30 mph headwind! Very good advice.

Thanks FishnDave! I actually really enjoyed the blog as well. I just felt like I was running out of new and interesting content so I basically gave it up. You can only take so many pictures of rivers, food and the occasionally caught fish and keep it interesting. Everyone wants videos these days anyway and I don't do videos. I enjoy taking good pictures but I'm not fishing all day with a go-pro on my head!

I decided recently that I may just start posting some trip pics on the site, more for my own enjoyment than anything. I do enjoy looking back at past trips with a picture narrative. I read your posts here frequently so I know that you're still terrorizing every species of fish that swims in your local waters with amazing success!
