Cool Trout fishing

My wife and I will be coming back to Branson the second week of September and would like to fish for trout. We have good equipment for crappie and bass fishing, but no fly rods. Would we do allright with that kind of equipment? Should we seek a guide or would we be able to do allright on our own?

Fishing on your own

Hello CoolLarry,
You could do just fine on your own. You will need to do the following though. Use no bigger than 6 pound test line and it would be best if it were green line. I use salmon eggs and usually catch a limit of fish within an hour at the most when the water is off. A guide will help you catch bigger fish plus they will bait your hooks and take fish off for you. There are pluses to both ways. I have used a guide trying to catch one to put on the wall. Came real close too. I wanted a 20" brown on the wall. I caught one that was 18". I don't think I would have caught him without the guide. It is fun either way. Just go and have fun and good luck to you.

Your crappie fishing gear should do the trick. Then you have to decide: bait or spinner/jig fishing. If you've never fished Taneycomo before, you'd probably be well-served to hire a guide. If you aren't bringing a boat, you'd probably be best served hiring a guide. But you can certainly do it on your own. Just make sure you familiarize yourself with the regulations...especially regarding the Trophy Management Zone on upper Taneycomo. It is an "artificials only" (means flies and lures w/no soft plastics) zone with a slot limit on Rainbow Trout.

Trout fishing

Thanks Silver Mallard and Trout Lover for the information! I think I will try to find a guide for our first time.

If you're going bait or spin fishing, contact Phil Lilley @ http://www.lilleyslanding.com

For fly fishing from western style drift boats contact Stan or Carolyn Parker @ http://www.riverrunoutfitters.com (Orvis Endorsed)

Excellent recommendations. Bob Klein of Bobs Guide Service http://www.bobsbransonguideservice.com/ is another one to conisder. He owned Branson Marina and has been guiding for years. For what it matters, if you are looking for an experience I would seriously consider a fly fishing float trip with Stan or Carolyn Parker @ http://www.riverrunoutfitters.com. You don't have to know a thing about flyfishing and everything except a license is included. You will catch fish and have a lovely experience floating down Lake Taneycomo while being rowed in a western style drift boat. It is something that you will never forget.

Here is another one you might want to check out - www.semperfly.com. The gentleman is in Hollister and lists quite a few services on his website. Good luck.
