Largemouth and smallmouth bass are also present in Lake Taneycomo and provide exciting angling opportunities.

Lake Taneycomo in Missouri is a prime destination for anglers seeking trout, bass, bluegill, crappie, walleye, catfish, and white bass. With its stunning scenery, cold-water fishery, and recreational amenities, Lake Taneycomo provides an unforgettable fishing experience for anglers of all skill levels.

Trout, catfish, crappie, bass, sunfish and walleye are favorites here and thrive in the cold, nutrient-rich water of the White River. Sandwiched between Table Rock Lake and Bull Shoals Lake, Taneycomo is only overshadowed by their mere physical size. The uppermost section of the lake is reserved for artificial lures and flies. Bank fishing along the 40-plus miles of shoreline is limited to public lands - start looking near the boat ramps and parks. Boats are a definite advantage when fishing Taneycomo Lake. Even a kayak or canoe can get considerably more access to fishing waters, than you can reach by fishing from shore. Marinas on the water can provide boating and fishing needs for all sizes and types of boats.
