Trout fishing report

Headed down 1st week of Aug. Need fishing tips on the trout at Taney; we've never fished Taney for trout. We'll be taking a boat and I'll have 3 kids that are fast becoming trout fanatics. We are staying 2 miles from the dam.

We are all confortable with either artificial and/or power bait. Mostly ultra-light gear and can fish either with float or floatless.

Thanks in advance for any tips..

The Fishing Report Lake Taneycomo in the Branson Courier contains a lot of good information on fishing Lake Taneycomo. It is particularly applicable to the area you are staying in because it is heavy on info covering the "Trophy Trout" area, the first three miles below the dam.

You will enjoy Taneycomo. I hope you all have great time. Which dam? I will assume Tablerock dam by the trophy area. If you flyfish you will love the trophy area. Ultralights with spinning lures work well along the bank. The MDC boat ramp has good places to work the river from the bank. Other places are hard without waders. The water is cold. From Fall Creek resort is an island off to your left as you go west toward the dam. Work the bank and the main channel. For spinning lures I recommend the local Lil Jakes. It looks like left over dice from Vegas that has been flattened out. Get all the different colors until you find what they are hitting. Also, Mepps extra deep lures in yellow, olive and chartruesse. There is a jig called the sculpin jig. It works well when they are deep in the area just toward the dam from Fall Creek. For power bait get pink, chartruesse, orange and white. They will also hit Capt. America powerbait. Withpower bait work the area from the bridges and powerlines (where the boat rentals are) to Cooper Creek. Iust came from Taneycomo and the fishing is good!
