Lake Taneycomo – A History

Dockside on Lake TaneycomoIt happens all the time. When people that come from somewhere else and spend time with us dockside we get some very similar questions. Is this a lake or a river? What river are we sitting alongside? Why do they call this a lake when it looks like a river? We thought this would be a good place to explain some of the mystery of the picturesque and river (or lake) in Branson, Missouri.

Main Street Marina on Lake TaneycomoHistory of Lake Taneycomo

Lake Taneycomo is a man-made lake or reservoir created from a section of the White River in Taney County Missouri. The name of the river comes from that county that it is located in. From the early 1900s to 1958 the lake was a warm water lake.  Once Tablerock Dam was completed in August 1958, the source of Lake Taneycomo came from the bottom of Tablerock Lake. From  that time onward, the lake has remained a fairly constant 50ish degrees. As you can imagine, with this change, swimming near the Rockaway Trout Fishing on Lake TaneycomoBeach area declined and many of the tourists wanting to get into the water instead moved toward other activities in Branson. Swimming in a cold water lake just wasn’t desirable.

Fishermen soon found that the chilly waters of Lake Taneycomo became a premier location for Trout fishing. Whether you prefer fly fishing or other methods, you will be hard pressed to find a more suitable location to catch Trout. With the completion of the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery in 1957, Lake Taneycomo became one of the best year-round locations for Trout fishing. No matter the time of year, it is rare to find the lake deserted of fishermen.

The best of a river and lake aspects are included in Lake Taneycomo.  It has become a terrific location for fishing, hiking, boating, sightseeing, and many other activities.
