Above Fall Creek casting white 1/8th ounce jigs when the water is running along the bluff banks, close to the bank, and catching trout from the boat ramp down to the top of Trophy Run, then from Lookout Island down to the Narrows is the deal.

Well spring is here and the trout are biting like crazy here at Lake Taneycomo. Shepherd of the Hills hatchery stocked rainbows, and it really has improveg catching. Last week officials stocked in and above the Branson area. These trout have been pretty easy to find and harvest by anglers drifting PowerBait Gulp eggs on the bottom as well as casting spoons and working them closer to the surface. Trout migrate to the slower areas of the lake which are along the sides, especially the inside bends of the lake where the current is slower. They also will hold in creeks and creek mouths, again out of the current. This week the water has slowed down and trout are in larger areas biting. We’ve been fishing in Turkey and Roark creeks and catching some nice rainbow trout as well. Power bait has been the deal.

The fishing up below the dam, has been good as well. Actually, there’s been a trickle of thread fin shad come through the turbines from Table Rock, enough for the trout holding within the first 800 yards of the dam face to hit anything white that floats by. Throwing small crankbaits and drifting shad flies and white jigs from the cable down to Outlet #3 has been taking some nice rainbows measuring between 11 and 19 inches, a lot of them spitting up shad when brought to the boat. Also throwing egg flies and scuds are working well up in the trophy area as well.

Powerbait or Gulp in chart/white or pink/white combinations, has been doing very well. Minnows and night crawlers are taking some nice fish as well. Fishing this is very simple.

The trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo is awesome and smoking hot. In the trophy area a #16 rusty midge fished with 6x fluorocarbon tippit under a palsa but in the middle of the water column, most of the time twelve to eighteen inches deep is working extremely well. The strikes on this are much easier to see because the fish take the palsa completely under when the bite. When the water is moving, we have been catching nice trout on white shad flies and white wooly buggers below the dam on drift rigs as well as eggs and scuds near the narrows.

The jig fishing has been good too. Sculpin, black, and sculpin and ginger jigs have been producing well jigging them off of the bottom. Today it was so windy it was hard to feel or see the bites because the line had such a big bow in it. A jig and float was easier to catch them on because of the float.

Fishing below Fall Creek has been good also. Powerbait or Gulp in chart/white or chartreuse/orange combinations, has been doing very well. Fishing this is very simple. Use a drift rig and let it drag on the bottom. Also trolling gold countdown Rapalas has been producing good fishas well as little jakes in gold and red are taking some nice fish as well.

Lake level: 710.0 (varies due to generation) Water Temp – 46 degrees

Trolling with spinners, medium crank baits and jigs is working well. I would recommend trolling below Cooper Creek and do down past the Landing. There’s more room down there plus that’s the area where Shepherd has been stocking their trout. Freshly stocked trout tend to stay close to the surface for a few days. Trolling lures run through this layer of water. Jig and float works well for these rainbows too.

Live bait is definitely catching bigger numbers lately and Gulp Power Bait using a white and chartreuse and orange and yellow either drifting down the lake when the water is running or still fishing. Four-pound line is the right weight line to use right now. You don’t need to drop to 2-pound. If the water is running, try minnows on a drift rig and when the water off–fish with air injected night crawlers.

On calm days, no wind, fishing jigs straight line and using 1/8th oz if the water is running and 1/16th oz if it is not. I’m using white, sculpin/orange and olive below the dam during generation, then dropping the white and using brown and sculpin below Lookout. Try a 1/16th oz jig under a float if the water is running and fish it about the depth of the water you’re fishing or a little deeper. Go to micro or marabou jigs in same colors and experiment with the depth of the jig till you find that happy level where the trout will bite.

The trout fishing is great right now here on Lake Taneycomo in Branson, Missouri. If you want to catch numbers of trout as well as some big ones, comes fish with us as soon as you can. From fall creek down to the cooper creek public access, drifting gulp eggs while current is running is the deal. Color does not seem to matter. The trout are biting and it does not matter what color combos you throw. The main thing is use as light a weight as you can get by with. When no water is running in these areas, a jig n float combo works well. Olive jigs have been the best.

From Fall Creek to the Table Rock dam, when the water is not running or if there is one generator running light, jig n float combos with olive and pink micro jigs are the deal. While the water runs, we have had our best luck drifting egg flies and light gray #16 scuds. A technique that is starting to pick up, is fishing a zebra midge 18” under a float. Anywhere you see trout midging this is working. We have been catching them from Branson all the way to the dam whenever the trout are midging.

Fall trout fishing here on Lake Taneycomo is awesome. It is really showing fisherman how wonderful of a fishery it really is. The trout are midging everywhere. Casting jig and float combos and gold castmaster spoons to these fish is working well. We have been catching numbers and big trout as well. Clients have had numbers of fish in the 18” to 22” range this week including several nice german brown trout.

From Cooper creek to Fall creek, fishing inflated night crawler are working the best. Also catching lots of fish with power bait as well. Best way to fish has been on very lite bottom rigs with 2lb test line. On a cloudy day the trout will rip a gold rapala floating jerkbait from your hands along the edge of flats and the channel banks.

Below Cooper Creek to Branson anchoring with bottom rigs and throwing power bait in orange and yellow color combinations is performing the best. Also in line spinners are producing as well.

In the trophy area 1/8 oz sculpin jigs in orange head/olive bodied sculpin jigs snapped off the bottom is producing numbers of larger fish. When the bite slows down #18 rusty brown midges trailed with #20 grey scuds along the flats is the deal. Also jig and float combinations is performing well for numbers of fish. On cloudy days jerkbaits twitched along channel banks will more than likely give you a strike from a nice rainbow or a large brown trout.

The corps finally turned the water back and and trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo is phenomenal. From Cooper creek to Downtown Branson, the trout are biting power bait on drift rigs really well. Chartreuse and white as well as orange and yellow color combinations are working well.

From Cooper creek to Fall creek, drifting inflated night crawlers as well as power bait combinations have been working great.

Up in the trophy area when the water is off, jig and float combinations with ginger and olive micro jigs have been hot as well as 1/100 oz yellow and pink egg fly patterns beneath the floats. 1/8 oz sculpin jigs in olive have been working while snapped along rocks along the channel for larger fish in this area. When the water is flowing, jig and float combinations with pink and white micro jigs produce well. Also peach egg fly’s and #14 uv gray scuds have been hot for numbers of fish this week.

Fishing on Lake Taneycomo has been awesome again this past week. The power generators have been left off most of the day and then turned on in the afternoon hours. The U.S. Corps of Army Engineers has been running a little less than one generator for anywhere from an hour to a few hours in the afternoon.


In the trophy area, the fishing has been great. We have been doing well with 1/100th oz yellow/peach eggs and micro jigs in ginger and olive. Also catching a few on a white thread jig when it is tough. #16 midges in rusty, black and black/silver have been the ticket when fish get suspended.


Below the trophy area rainbow trout have been biting night crawlers very well along with white and orange and yellow Powerbait combinations. We have also been catching some nice fish below Fall Creek on ginger micro jigs, and sculpin 1/8th oz marabou jigs in green and orange color combos. Just below Fall Creek and right around Monkey Island have been the hot spots this week.
