Fishing at Trophy Run
Trophy Run is sited on the shoreline of Lake Taneycomo, Branson, Missouri which is renowned as a world-class fishing destination. The section of Lake Taneycomo known as the “Trophy Trout Section” is Trophy Run’s front-yard, hence the name of our resort. Outside of the phenomental fishing on Lake Taneycomo and nearby Table Rock Lake, Trophy Run is unique in having two stocked fishing ponds with bass, crappie & panfish, and catfish.

What makes Lake Taneycomo trout fishing so unique?
Since the water-level in Taneycomo fluctuates depending on power generation needs at Table Rock Dam, Lake Taneycomo’s trout are unable to reproduce. But don’t worry – Missouri’s largest trout hatchery is only about a mile upstream from Trophy Run. The Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery, operated by the Missouri Department of Conservation, supplies over 700,000 trout each year to Taneycomo’s cool waters, insuring the best in sport fishing for visitors and locals 12 months a year. An additional 225,000 rainbow and brown trout are supplied by the Neosho National Fish Hatchery near Joplin, Missouri.
This means the area of the Lake Taneycomo that Trophy Run is sited on produces an astounding number of fish. Including the Trophy Run stocked fishing ponds, Trophy Run presents the opportunity for an angler of any skillset to catch the biggest fish of one’s life.
A Missouri fishing license and trout tag are required to fish in any of the local public lakes. Temporary licenses are available at reduced cost for visitors to Trophy Run and Ozark Mountain Country.
