Spring Fishing Lake Taneycomo

April 10th, 2014 by Lamar Patton

Well we thing Spring has sprung this time… Ha Ha¬†¬†¬† It’s been a flurry of activity on Lake Taneycomo in March and so far in April.¬† We are starting to see some warmer temps, although the Almanac hasn’t ruled out another snow …. We are enjoying the warmer afternoons. The grass is turning green and trees are budding.. and Dogwoods are blooming.

For most of March.. we fished the creeks heavily. Trout were stacked in Turkey and Roark Creek, heck we even saw the illustrious Fly guides down here in the narly Bait fishing waters¬† … Ha

April fishing is mostly back in the main lake, with some numbers still being caught in Roark.¬†¬†¬† Water flows have been steady, as is typical Spring flow… once you see Table Rock get to 915.. SWPA / COE water plan calls for up to 15,000 cfs to be run, to maintain power pool.

Spoons, Trout Magnets, Scotty’s Taneycomo Jigs are working well in lures, as well as Rapalas¬†¬†¬† Night Crawlers on the live bait, with some folks choosing minnows.¬†¬† Chartruese Gulp, mixed with Pink or Orange has been the best in scented baits.

Watch for our Purple Heart Tournament on April 25th.. If you’d like to see the weigh in , it will be at 2pm.

Have a great day on the lake
