Lake Taneycomo Fishing Report
The Trout fishing on Taneycomo mo Lake in Branson Mo is on fire 4 hour trips all month have been averaging 75 fish, and we usually miss 2 to 5 bites for every fish we catch!
The big trout (20 inch and over) have been hard to come by in the last 2 weeks we will get 2 or 2 of those bigger trout hooked every trip out but for some reason the big ones have been getting away? The average fish we are catching is 11â€³ to 13â€³ and a blast to catch on fly rods and light spinning tackle!
The best baits have been vary with the conditions and you have to adjust quickly to catch numbers of fish, midges, scuds, jigs and egg patterns have been the best baits for the trout on Taneycomo Lake. the colors change with conditions and the amount of current that is flowing on Taneycomo. The colors I have been catching best on have been Black, browns, greens, tan and olives on the scuds, midges and the jigs, and orange, pink, yellow and redâ€™s on the eggs.

The fall and early winter trout fishing on Taneycomo Lake in Branson Mo has been awesome!! On our 4 hour trips the catches average between 50 and 75 trout with fish up to and over 20â€³ most every day, the majority of the trout caught are between 12â€³ to 14â€³ this makes a fun day for clients and myself as a guide!
The generation schedule has been low with Table Rock Lake being about 10â€² low due to a dry year. The fishing has been best when there is some water flowing from the dam, the water that has been flowing has had some color to it allowing the use of heavier 4# shen spin fishing or 5x leaders when fly fishing eliminating break offs. The best baits under water flow have been egg patterns with a scud or sanjuan worm as a trailer or larger size 14 and 16 midges in black, olive, tan and rusty colors. With the low generations at the dam and no water flow to activate the fish it is imperative that there is some wind to break up the light penetration. Under no flow the jig and float has been the top bait to throw if there is some wind creating ripples on the surface, the best jig colors have been white, olive and ginger. If there is no wind on the surface and there is no water flow it can be tough to catch the Lake Taneycomo trout! Under these conditions the midges have been the most productive in the trophy area or the upper 3 miles of Taneycomo Lake, smaller midges and lighter leaders in 2# or fly fishing with even 6 and even 7x tippets have been the key to catching the inactive trout, I donâ€™t like using the 7x tippet as I feel it is hard on the fish and we loose a lot of flies on the hook set. Watch the surface and you will see the areas the trout are midging and focus on those areas. Under these conditions this is one of the few times I will leave the trophy area and fish below fall creek, with no water flow and no wind action in the upper lake you can still catch trout by adding some berkley gulp to your rigs and must be below fall creek to use bait! The deeper section between Trout Hollow to Lilleyâ€™s Landing or Cooper Creek resort is the best section for fishing under these conditions.

The trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo in Branson MO is on fire! 4 hour trip today with 2 anglers w=they caught 76 trout up to 18â€³! They were running the water all day and the trout were hungry. We caught Trout on several different lures and flies. Midges in black, scuds in tan, eggs in orange and sculpin jigs. We started out right above fall creek and spent the first 2 hours there catching several trout. We then ran to the dam to see if we could catch some bigger trout, but while we were heading up there they shut down the generation to 1 generator, causing the lake to fall. When this happens it brings the waders out to the middle of the lake, and I try and stay out of there way. We finished our trip below the fall creek marina casting a sculpin jig.
It was a beautiful day on Lake Taneycomo today, the wind was light and the sun was shining, I was surprised to only see 3 of 4 other boats out on such a nice day. We saw 2 or 3 eagles today, even saw one dive in the water to try and catch a trout. If you want to have a great day on the water head to Taneycomo Lake, I think the slowest 4 hour trip I have had this month is 48 trout in 4 hours!
They have been running water all week at the Table Rock Lake dam and the trout fishing on Taneycomo Lake in Branson Missouri is on fire! We have been catching great numbers of all week, 56 trout in 4 hours today, 48 in 4 yesterday, 51 in 4 the day before! Mostly rainbow trout in the 12â€³ to 15â€³ rang with fish up to 20â€³ pretty much daily.
The trout on lake Taneycomo are mainly feeding on midges and scuds, and these are some of our most productive flies. Midges in reds browns blacks and olive in size 16 to20 and scuds in gray tan and olive in sizes 16 to 20. We are fishing both on fly rods or spinning rods depending on clients preference for fishing equipment. We are using the same leaders and baits on both rod types but using bigger strike indicators on the spinning rods to aid in casting distance with the small flies.
We have a great advantage when the water is running on Taneycomo over the drift style boats, they are not able to run or move back upstream and re fish the most productive sections of the lake. In addition if they drift downstream to a current break and there is another boat anchored on it, you have to anchor on a unproductive spot or continue your drift to the next break in hopes it is not occupied also (there is only so many productive spots to anchor in the 3 mile trophy area) We do not anchor but drift with the current just as the natural forage does in Lake Taneycono.

Trout fishing on Taneycomo Lake in Branson MO is good as always! The lake and the Ozark Mountains or hills that surround it arbeautiful and serene! The trees are turning beautiful reds, yellows and crimsons. There is a group of trees directly across Lake Taneycomo and slightly up river from Cooper Creek Public fishing access that slowly started changing color last week (I have been watching them every day as I unload my boat for trout fishing on Taneycomo) and overnight they all fully turned red today!
They are not running much water at Table Rock lake this week but the fish are biting really well as usual. We are catching lots of fish on midges, wooly bugger, egg patterns, scuds and jigs above fall Creek. Below fall creek to Scottyâ€™s Trout dock Berkley power baits and gulp on a drift rig is catching fish good also some fish being caught on night crawlers.
Both spinning rods and fly rods are working good.

Trout fishing was great today! We are starting to catch some bigger fish, with the shorter days and turning of the leaves in the Ozark hills that surround Beautiful Lake Taneycomo in Branson Missouri.
We had 3 fish over 18â€³ and 1 over 20â€³ today with several fish between 14â€³ and 16â€³ with 4 people in the boat I stayed busy unhooking untangling and netting fish, 3 fish on 3 lines several times and even had 2 fish on one rod at the same time! They ran one generator today even though they didnâ€™t call for it or have it scheduled to run any water.
We caught fish on both spinning rods and Fly rods. When we started fishing we were using the shorter Bass Pro shops Micro-lite rods in 7â€² ML action with Cardinal 101 spinning rods, casting jigs and midges due to the current flow being slow but as we made a few drifts the current rapidly increased to were we had to switch to the longer 8.5â€² rods with longer leaders and more weight to keep our baits close to the bottom of Taneycomo lake. There is a fine line between having your baits close to the bottom of the lake and getting it caught in the moss that covers the bottom of the entire Taneycomo lake.
The best baits for us to catch the trout on Taneycomo lake today were the Micro jig in brown and tan and a #16 midge in tan and rusty brown we also caught some fish on the hopper flies on a fly rod.

The trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo in Branson Missoui is as good as ever!
This week the leaves have started changing color and it looks like it is going to be a beautiful fall on in the Ozark mountains. With the dying of the leaves on the trees that surround Taneycomo lake they are falling in the lake and adding some overhead cover for the trout. You can fish the edges of the mats of leaves and you will catch trout. Jig, midge or trout magnet and a float. Colors change with light and mood of the fish (if you are not experimenting with different color combinations daily and sometimes hourly you are missing out on a lot of action)
The fishing is great both above and below Fall Creek above artificial lures and flies obviously, jigs, midges, eggs and nymphs. We ar getting into the time of year were you need to bring a jerk bait rod with you and start chunking for the bigger trout that art heading up Lake Taneycomo for the annual fall trout spawn run.

Under low water or no generation at Table Rock Dam the best lures are small jigs midges and egg patterns in the trophy area of Taneycomo Lake, In the lower section from Fall Creek to Branson Landing the best trout baits have been Berkly gulp in orange, chartreuse and white and night crawlers on a drift rig.
