Spring is starting to show its beauty in the hills of southwest Missouri and northern Arkansas. The black-and-white landscape of these awe-inspiring forested hills will soon be all dressed out in green. The serviceberry tree will be the first to adorn the Ozarks hills with its white blossoms. Thousands of redbud trees with their purplish-tinged blooms will follow. Everyone’s favorite, the dogwood tree, will soon join the party.
Spring, in this part of America, is a time of beautiful wildflowers, warm breezes, gentle rains, gobbling turkeys, and hungry fish. Paraphrasing the famous song “The Hills are Alive” in The Sound of Music, sung by Julie Andrews, the hills are alive with the sound of music.The music here in the Ozarks hills is the sound of flowing water, beautiful songbirds, peeper frogs, turkeys gobbling, and the sound of music from Branson’s numerous live shows.
For many years, people have come from all over to the Ozarks for great fishing in the Spring. Not too many places in America offer the diverse fisheries available here. Three species of bass, along with walleye, stripers, crappie, perch, catfish, and even the prehistoric paddlefish, swim in Table Rock and Bull Shoals Lakes waters. Bowfishing for non-game fish in rivers and streams has also become a very popular activity.
Rainbow and brown trout, bass, crappie, and walleye all make Lake Taneycomo their home. Flowing through the city of Branson, Lake Taneycomo is well known as one of the finest trout fisheries in the world. There are many guides for hire on all lakes to help you with your quest for fish.
