Another Huge Trout From Lake Taneycomo

Fishing with friends Gerry Dwiggns and Tom Burckhardt, Phil Lilley, long-time owner of Lilley’s Landing resort and marina on Lake Taneycomo, recently caught and released a 29” rainbow. The huge trout hit a 3/32 oz. brown and orange jig near the old Fall Creek ramp.

I’ve stayed at Phil’s place many times and highly recommend it. Give him a call at (417) 334-6380 and check out his website .
