What Should Customers Bring?
Customers should bring a camera to capture that special moment or fish. Everyone must have eye protection. If you wish to wear you own gear, Missouri has banned the use of porous-sole wading boots. If you have rubber-soled boots with studs, no problem. All guides have heavy rubber mats on the floor or their drift boats. Winter, spring, and fall, especially in the early mornings, can be cool on the lake/river due to fog, so layer. There is plenty of room in the drift boats to store extra clothing.
About Our Fly Shop
We try to accommodate the needs of our customers, especially those taking full-day trips where lunch is provided. If a person has certain dietary restrictions or needs, please let us know and we will do the best we can to accommodate you.
Sample of Typical Itinerary
We offer half-day and full-day walk/wade or a combination of wade/drift trips. Many times there will be light-to-heavy generation from Table Rock Dam. We are experienced at handling all the variables this lake/river has to offer. The only time we will not get on or in the water is when there is lightning.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Where are you located?
A. Branson, Missouri sits on the banks of Taneycomo. This is a great vacation destination for the entire family. Not only do we have great fly fishing, but Table Rock lake is a warmwater lake with a variety of water sports activities, including freshwater fish, available.
Q. Where is the closest airport?
A. Branson now has its own airport and is only 48 miles south of Springfield, Missouri, where another airport is located. A major highway runs right through the area. Lots of good dining, shopping, entertainment, resort and motel accommodations are available.
Species You Fish for by Season
Taneycomo is stocked full of rainbow and brown trout. Best time of the year to catch a nice brown will be fall when they have their fall spawn run. Our rainbows spawn both in the spring (late March into April) as well as fall (late September through October). Primary hatches on Taneycomo are midges. We do get some small mayfly hatches, but the best mayfly hatches are further down stream out of the prime fly-fishing area. Summer months can provide some beetle and ant action. Mid-summer into fall, we will be looking at hoppers.
