Generation on Lake Taneycomo the last few weeks have been fairly consistent. There's been some flow but not much. When dam officials do run water, it's in the mornings and/or evenings for a couple of hours. There are exceptions (of course). No real pattern to the day of the week, but they've been running from a half unit to two units all day and night. But again, that's may be one day a week. Colder...
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?!
Very little generation has occurred this past week here on Lake Taneycomo. Not even a little "fish water" in the evenings, which we usually see this time of year.
Generation on Lake Taneycomo is less than it was a week ago. Right now water is running only in the evenings for a short time, with a few exceptions. The water temperature remains at 49 degrees.
Generation on Lake Taneycomo still hasn't changed much. If anything, a little less water is running in the afternoons with less volume. The water temperature is the same -- 48-49 degrees coming through the turbines, and oxygen seems to be staying at high levels -- all good for trout fishing.
