Yes, it's cold here on Lake Taneycomo this morning. The Ozarks isn't sheltered from the cold arctic air that blew in last night across the Midwest. While warmwater fish like bass and crappie might become dormant as it gets cooler, trout thrive on cold. It's just hard on us anglers, right?!
Lilleys' Landing will again host two winter trout tournaments to launch some friendly competition on Lake Taneycomo in 2015 -- the Master Trout Tournament on January 24 and the Vince Elfrink Memorial on February 28. These are two-anglers/per team tournaments, fishing from boats only (no wading.) Each tournament costs $50 per team to enter.
