  • Approximately 2,500 10-inch trout went out to Lake Taneycomo last Friday and Monday. They are transported by truck then by pontoon to areas along the lake. The staff's recent visit to Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery was an enjoyable one. Their visitor center is educational and fun-filled with a friendly staff. It includes exhibits appealing to children and adults alike. The serene setting along Lake Taneycomo with fly fishers casting in the water and the sunshine enhance the surroundings.
