Headed to Taneycomo next Sunday and wondering what the conditions and fishing is like. I've fished the White River numerous times below Beaver and the Little Red once before, but never Taneycomo. My initial thoughts have been Zebra Midges below some type of small ant pattern. Any thoughts or advice?

Scuds, San Juan worms, sculpin patterns, woolly buggers, and then scuds, scuds, and more scuds. Pretty much a scud pattern is the best choice 80% of the time, drop it below a red, pink, tan, or even orange San Juan worm. Woolly buggers In dark colors work well when the water is down. I’ve heard of zebra midges working but I’ve always been told that’s more of a winter time thing. Being that it is September, some of the bigger browns should be starting to show up, that’s where some big zonker and big fluffy sculpin patterns come into play, anything that looks like a sculpin darting it’s way across the bottom of the stream.

Don't forget sowbugs either. 99 percent of southern tailwaters have a plethora of them. Olive, UV grey and tan would be the go to colors. Also as has been mentioned streamers in a few different flavors worked deep will work too. If you get a cool cloudy day a thorax BWO would also be good. This time of year there should be a few hoppers around so a hopper pattern or #14 to#12 stimulator in yellow or caddis green should draw some attention.

X2 on the sowbugs and hoppers. Love the Branson area.

Also be careful not to step on the trout. They tend to cluster right in front of your feet, waiting for you to move your foot and stir up some scuds or sowbugs. I was told about it and didn't believe it until I looked down and there must have been about 10 trout right in front of me just hovering.
