Lilleys’ Landing Resort and Marina in Branson, Missouri, may be just the spot you’re looking for to enjoy both the tourist sites and the restive Ozarks waterfront along Lake Taneycomo. Nestled between gently sloping pasture land and the 300-foot bluffs on the opposite bank, the noises from town are buffered, even though the Music Country Blvd. “strip” is just two miles away.
As one of the small, family-run resorts on Lake Taneycomo, Lilleys’ Landing is close to many back roads that lead to area attractions. With free wireless internet and in-room phones you can be as connected as you want to be, but we won’t tell your co-workers — unless they come with you for a work/play lakeside conference. Nothing like flyfishing all together in a boat for the ultimate team building time.

Fishing Report

This is going to be a tough fishing report for me to write because trout fishing on Lake Taneycomo is pretty slow, except if you're fly fishing below the dam while the water is off.  Then it's pretty good.

There has been no generation during the day except in the evenings when dam operators might run a little "fish water" -- about 30 megawatts or a half-unit for a few hours.  But this amount varies.  Weekends it seems they're not running any at all.

Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery is a place dear to my own heart. I worked there as an intern in 2005 and continued to work there on and off for several years following. The hatchery is operated by the Missouri Department of Conservation and is responsible for stocking more than 700,000 trout into Lake Taneycomo each year. Five cold-water state hatcheries keep Missouri’s colder waters teeming with trout, and of those five, Shepherd of the Hills is the largest.

Trout Tournaments


Cold, freezing winter weather is just around the corner (can you believe it!) so it's time to start thinking about trout fishing! And what better way to get motivated is to talk cash, trophies and stardom! Sorry--a little over the top.
