Low Generation Outlook, Great Fly Fishing Opportunities

Recommended Posts

  • Root Admin

Looks like we're in for an unusual summer fishing season here on Lake Taneycomo.  Normally this time of year, the lakes above us are pretty full.  They are not this spring because of a lack of big rains and the fact that the Corps has stayed on top of the rising lakes and kept them close to power pool.

Today the schedule says no generation all day except for an hour of "fish water", a burst of current for about an hour this evening.  This probably will be the generation pattern at least through this holiday weekend.

Docks and banks will be lined with anglers with the ideal conditions for still fishing.  And the fly rods have come out and are poised to fish things under an indicator like micro jigs, scuds and midges.

With the big numbers of catch and release trophies recorded the last few months, it seems there are a lot of big trout to be caught in our lake.  With the water off, it may be easier for the novice fisherman to catch one of these.  We had 2 20-inch plus rainbows caught off the dock just yesterday, both released.

Just in time for soft hackle o clock!

All day, every day! Get your swing on. 

Maybe try that random Ant or Beetle dry fly

Just once I wish a trout would wink at me!


I'm the guy wearing the same Simms longbilled hat for 10 years now.
