Trout Fishing On Lake Taneycomo
No experience is necessary for trout fishing! I have  coached hundreds of people both young and old into there first trout fishing trip on Taneycomo Lake in Branson, Mo. We use either spinning rods or fly rods, and I can teach you to use either in no time. Most people automatically associate trout fishing with fly rods and automatically think they don’t have the skills to fly fish. We do a lot of our trout fishing on Taneycomo Lake with spinning rods, we use the same lures and flies that we use on our fly rods but a spinning rod is easier to use for the inexperienced trout fisher person.
I have over 20 years of fly fishing experience, and fly fishing for trout is what actually brought me to Taneycomo lake for the first time so many  years ago! If you are wanting to learn to fly fish, or think you might like to even try it for a few casts, we can help you see if it is for you. If it is not then don’t worry we will catch them on spinning rods. If you are a seasoned fly fisherman I can keep you on the trout all day!

Accessible from historic downtown Branson, the Branson Landing and at multiple points east including the communities of Rockaway Beach, Forsyth and Powersite and south of Hwy. 76 in Hollister and the Fall Creek area, Lake Taneycomo was formed with the completion of Powersite Dam in 1913. It was originally section of the White River, and although Taneycomo is now technically a lake, it retains the look and feel of a river.

When the Table Rock Dam was completed at Taneycomo's headwaters in 1958, the nature of the lake changed. Taneycomo's water now comes from the bottom of Table Rock Lake, making it a cold water lake.

Lake Taneycomo Fishing
The cold, clear water, stocked annually with approximately 750,000 10-12" rainbow trout, makes Taneycomo a world-class trout fishing lake year round. The cold, clear water combined with the Shepherd of the hills trout hatchery has made it the perfect spot for rainbow and german brown trout.

About 80% of the 1,200,000 trout raised at the hatchery each year are released into Taneycomo.

The upper end (restricted area) of the lake offers superb spin fishing and fly fishing for both quality and quanity of trout while the rest of the lake offers superb lure and baitfishing for numbers of fish. There is an artificial only regulation as well as a slot limit in the restricted area, but the rest of the lake has no length or lure restrictions, but is under state wide regulations.
