Larry & Lee Ann's Journey travel blog

Pic taken from the web for the big picture...

Table Rock Dam, located next to the fish hatchery about 6 miles...

There were a number of boats on the water...

And a number of guys in the water!

The water was rushing in here...

This guy was swimming hard to keep from being swept in...

Working hard...

Ah but it was worth the effort, got one!

This guy reminded me of you brother Larry!

Note how clear the water is...

Looking farther left, there were plenty of guys down river too...

Moving on, we stopped to check out the lake itself above the...

Chateau by the Lake, looks very nice, bet it's costly!


While visiting the Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery, we couldn't help but notice Table Rock Dam. The Dam has a height above the river bed of 252 feet, a length of 6,423 feet and has 10 Spillway Crest Gates.

Lake Taneycomo was created in 1913 as a warm water lake and in 1958 became a cold water lake when the Table Rock Dam was completed. The clear cold waters from the deep tailwaters of Table Rock Lake pour out of the dam into Lake Taneycomo. These cold waters of Lake Taneycomo provide for some of the finest trout fishing anywhere in the world. All methods of trout fishing; fly fishing, artificial bait, and live bait fishing may be used year-round to pursue the elusive trout that inhabit the waters.

Lake Taneycomo has the characteristics of both a river and a lake for anglers to enjoy. The shallow colder water, located near the Table Rock Dam, averages 48 degrees F, resembles a river and permits wading and bank fishing for trout. There were a number of anglers present today as the skies were clear & beautiful. We saw a couple of small trout caught while we watched and wished we had gear with us to join in the fun. Next time we'll come better prepared!
