Payable Guide Service LLC – 24'

Payable Guide Service takes you fishing on yet another amazing location. This time, join Captain Bruce on Lake Taneycomo, which is one of the best Rainbow and Brown Trout fisheries in the world. Bring your family and friends and enjoy this day together.

Lake Taneycomo is the tailwaters of Table Rock Lake. Depending on whether the dam is generating electricity or not, it’s either a river or a lake, which changes the way the captain fishes. The river/lake is 22 miles long. If the dam is flowing, you’ll usually drift with the current, if not, it’s more like lake fishing.

In recent years, some anglers have caught a 40 pound Brown Trout. Of course, this isn’t a standard and doesn’t happen every day, but who knows? Maybe the next 40 pounder ends up on your hook!

You’ll be fishing on a 24’ Sea Ark boat that accommodates up to 6 anglers. She’s powered by a 140 HP Suzuki engine and reaches the speed of 35 knots. The boat is wheelchair accessible, features navigational electronics, and also has a live bait tank and a cooler.

The captain will cover your fishing equipment and fresh water. If you’re an avid fly fisherman, feel free to bring your one fly gear. Don’t forget to purchase your fishing license and pack some snacks and drinks.

Spend a wonderful day with Payable Guide Service. Just pick the date.
