May 21, 2017 ~ A new rain event dumped as much as six inches of rain over the White River Basin Saturday, with an average of about three inches, causing Beaver and Table Rock lakes to rise and start releasing more water through their dams.  We were concerned that the influx of water could cause big releases from Table Rock evenually -- enough to put us underwater again --  but so far it appears that isn't going to happen.  Table Rock is...

 

It's amazing to see so many big trout caught the last few days.  The Corps have had to open more flood gates because of rain over the weekend at Table Rock and Beaver Lakes but it's just made fishing better on Lake Taneycomo.  More and more threadfin shad have come over the gates from Table Rock giving our trout (and other species of fish) lots of eat.  

I explain in today's One Cast what they're running here on Lake Taneycomo as far as flow and how fishing is on the lake.  If you're fishing below Fall Creek, the best fishing is down close to the resort drifting with night crawlers.

May 10, 2017 ~ I've been wearing out two apps on my iPhone the last two weeks -- the weather app and the USACE Little Rock app.  After the rain stopped, it's been the corps app.  I'm watching lake levels, as we watch 23,000 c.f.s. of water move past our resort here on Taneycomo.

 

Same flow today.  More fishing guides out today and most are reporting fishing is good.  But those without guides are having trouble catching trout.  The main reason is not getting the bait to the bottom and keeping it there.  With this much current plus depth, you must put on enough weight to keep whatever you're using on the bottom.  That's where the slower water is, that's where the fish are.
