Lake Taneycomo is 22 miles and 2080 acres of crystal clear water is nestled in beautiful Taney County, Missouri. Formed in 1913 with the construction of Powersite Dam,Taneycomo is officially classified as a lake, however it’s structure and function is more like that of a river. When Table Rock Dam was built in 1958, Taneycomo’s water supply then became the clear cold water from the bottom of it’s resevoir. The only thing trout need more than water is cold water. This, combined with Missouri’s aggressive trout conservation and stocking programs have made Taneycomo an ideal place for the production of record-size brown and rainbow trout.
