Early Spring 2010 Fishing on Lake Taneycomo!

It’s March the 5th and the rush is on for fishermen everywhere to get their boats and fishing tackle in order. I am lucky enough to live close by the Powersite Dam that divides Taneycomo upstream and Bull Shoals down stream. The Empire Electric District Electric company that is based in Joplin Missouri does an outstanding job of keeping the park in tip top shape, even in spite of a massive sewer project that is currently underway.
On this fine pre-spring morning the temperature had climbed into the upper 50’s under mostly clear skies.  There were a number of boats out with most of them set up for serious fishing. I was lucky enough to be able to approach two fishermen by the names of Philip and Lloyd. Philip is from Ozark while Philip hales from Springfield Missouri. Both gentleman have been down before and remarked that they normally have their limit much earlier in the day. I’m not sure if that was a good thing or not. What they did have were some of the nicest rainbow trout you ever laid your eyes on as you can see in the attached picture.

  1. Do you ever go down stream into Bull Shoals? My in-laws live at mid like (Buck Creek) and I do a lot of fishing. However, I have heard the bass fishing in early spring is awesome up the river…before and around K Dock. Wondering if you have heard of any good catches going on? I’m heading down next week and would like to have a good report before burning the gas to go up river.

    Great blog BTW….
