Fished Taneycomo the other day. First time to the fishery and had a good time fishing with my father. I caught five rainbows in a couple of hours, four of which were on a red zebra midge. Water was running zero units. As I pride myself on generally taking good photos of my adventures I must apologize upfront--I didn't have my underwater camera with me on this trip and ended up dropping my camera in the water, so I didn't get many shots off and the singular shot of a trout is far from sexy. We will see how the camera fares, for the moment it is covered in rice. 

Anyhow, I had planned on returning the next day to float a stretch in my kayak but the weather turned on us and dropped snow and freezing rain, not conditions my father thought were particularly favorable. All things considered I wouldn't mind returning, particularly as I hear the night bite for Browns is stellar.

 Rainbow on red zebra midge. I warned you, not exactly a quality shot. Dropped the camera a few seconds after this was taken. 


Looks like fun...it's a great fishery for both numbers and size of fish. My only issue with it is the small amount of wadeable water and the trout park like crowds at times.

Oh I didn't even think of that. I bet the place does get a little hectic during the height of the season with it being so close to Branson.
