On Tuesday of this week, the U.S. Corps of Army Engineers shut our flood gates off, ending almost a month of high water on Lake Taneycomo.  We went from moderate flows in December to flood conditions and a record breaking 73,000 c.f.s. flow in just a couple of days.  As flood water moved through the system and lake levels dropped, that flow dropped...

Oh how things change quickly on our tailwater fishery.  Two weeks ago, our trout just below the dam were fighting for their lives.  Water quality was lethal for many reasons.  I believe we've covered all  the "why."  (See my ...
