I apologize.  It's been too long since my last report.  I have started writing fishing reports several times in the past weeks only to pause for a day and then see that details in the report had changed and weren't valid anymore.  But excuses aside, none of us had fished enough to have had a good handle on the latest and our guides had not been booked consistently.   But here goes another effort.

August 21 b

This is all leading up to my fishing report for late August and a forecast for the coming weeks of fishing on our lake. August has been nothing less than excellent fishing and continues to improve! There are several unique factors I can point to that have helped.

With little change in weather patterns, rainfall throughout the month of July, generation patterns on Taneycomo have been fairly consistent.  Most days dam operators are running a half unit, 25-35 megawatts of power, at night through the morning, then kicking on any where from 100 to 150 megawatts, or up to two full units, from mid-afternoon until sunset.  There have been a few days when they've had the dam completely shut down with no water running, but they've been few and far between with no rhyme or reason why.

It's the last day of June . . . my how the weeks of summer fly by.  I remember as a kid that summer breaks just didn't seem to last but a week or two, and then it was back to school.  I think it's still the same.

Taneycomo Rainbow
Dustin Ewers with a huge 24-inch rainbow caught off Lazy Valley's dock. Released.

Summer has settled in here on Lake Taneycomo; as evidence I offer the temperature today -- 98 degrees.  After a mild winter and spring, we shouldn't complain very much, right?  We knew this was coming.  Good thing our lake water is cold -- I'd hate to be on a warm water lake fishing in this heat!
