Water is Cooling Down and Other Stuff

These cool nights are cooling down Table Rock.  Should see the lake turn over soon which will take the temperature in Taneycomo down and dissolved oxygen level up.  All good conditions for Taneycomo.  Last week we had no more than two hours of water running during any 24 hour period.  This Monday they started dumping Beaver so we are seeing two to four generators every morning for four hours (6:00 a.m.-10:00 a.m.) and again in the early evening (5:00 p.m.). 

Stan was on the water with Bob from Texas yesterday.  After they found what and where the fish were, they had a pretty good half day on the water.  Picked up a few on two to three different midges, but the fish just were not taking midges real well.  The best patterns were the black wooly bugger and the golden variant sculpin.  Of the two, the scuplin worked the best.  They were fishing water 3-4 feet deep from below the boat ramp down to the KOA narrows. 

Darrell was out helping a couple guys up by the hatchery area.  They finally started catching fish around the outlets with size 16 gray or tan scuds. 

Better check our site for the balance of 2008 and early 2009 free fly tying clinic schedule.  We will again offer basic as well as tying patterns which work most of the time on Taneycomo.  We have also added a couple dates for basic casting clinics in the spring, just in time to sharpen up for the spring fly fishing season. 

AND, don’t forget to check out the 1-day fly fishing Clinics which start in April with a Women’s Clinic, May with a Co-ed Clinic and another Women’s Clinic in June.
