Got out for a few hours this morning on Taneycomo. Water running--didn't surprise me--but the amount of water they were running did. Saturday? Two units? Really? Banks were lined with anglers, most frustrated by the high water I'm sure. The happy ones were the guys in the prime spots at the outlets.
Fishing -- and catching -- on Lake Taneycomo lately has been awfully good, according to our guides and most of anglers we talk to. Generation has been unpredictable, running some days and not running other days with no real pattern. I'd normally advise checking the Southwest Power Administration site but be warned . . . the generation schedule has been wrong at least two days in the last week. Our water temperature is an amazing 47 degrees. I say amazing because it has stayed around 47...
Set aside yesterday (Tuesday) for fishing. Thought about heading to a different place I decided to stay home and fish Taneycomo. Wanted to wade all morning but the Corp decided to run water all day so boat fishing I did. Eric Evans (ciRe on the forum) wanted to go along so we loaded up and headed uplake about 8 am.
Generation - no much with the exception of one day this week when they ran quite a bit all day. It did clean the lake out, at least the upper end. They've been running "fish water" in the evenings, about 2 hours of a half unit. Check the SPA schedule, but don't rely on it 100%. They do change it without notice.
