This weather is pretty sweet, isn't it?! We keep thinking that any day now it's going to turn into a "normal" summer and become blazing hot, but it hasn't yet! One real nice thing about this cooler, drier weather is that there's no fog on Lake Taneycomo early and late in the day. Some like the fog, but I like to fish early and late and don't like driving through a wet, cold fog. That's just me!
Catch of the week
Phil Lilley was in search of small trout when he took his grandkids fishing recently on Lake Taneycomo.
“We were trying to catch a couple of small trout for an art project they were doing,” said Lilley, who runs Lilleys’ Landing Resort and Marina.
With little rain and not much change in lake levels, generation pattern has been the same the last few days. Low daytime temperatures have also helped -- that is to keep the water from running here on Lake Taneycomo. Generation has occurred only late in the afternoon for only an hour, not reaching over one unit.
Generation schedules for Lake Taneycomo have been consistent this past week. Most days the water has been off in the mornings then running, starting mid-afternoon until 9 p.m. The difference is in how much water is run and when it is shut down. For instance, four full units ran yesterday for three hours. Today only run one unit was running in the afternoon. This pattern should hold true for the coming days.
