Fishing Report

November 26e

Cold weather has come to the Ozarks just like most of the Midwest.  Do fish like the cold?  Yes they do!  Not just trout but warm water species like colder water temperatures, too.  The change triggers a big feeding binge before hard winter sets in, just as a bear gorges  before he hibernates for the winter.  Taneycomo trout like colder water temperatures simply because they cause Table Rock...

The leaves have all fallen and we've had our first hard freeze. Yep . . . winter is right around the corner! I believe some great trout fishing is around the corner, too, here on Lake Taneycomo.

I went out today to take some photos before the wind blew all the pretty leaves down. Yesterday was definitely the peak as far as fall colors, but it's still beautiful out. It's sad to see the foliage leaving us for the winter -- but they're making a grand exit!...

It's been a long time coming but here's the latest for upper Taneycomo. Trees right now are at their peak but the rain forecasted tonight might drop most of their leaves to the ground. It will still be beautiful tomorrow. I actually like late fall when there's only a few bright colored leaves left of the trees on the bluff. They will offer a great contrast....

After watching the Cardinals take game four in the NLDS, I had a choice--go to bed and get up at 5 a.m. to play basketball at the Rex Plex at 6 with the guys or pull the waders on and drive to the dam and do some night fly fishing.  I chose fishing.  Mind you, I usually pick basketball but the conditions for fly fishing were too tempting last night....
