Anyone familiar with lake Taneycomo? Is there a good place to shore dive? What are the water conditions?

Never heard of diving Lake Tanycomo, but that doesn't mean much.

MM2002, can probably help out here he lives down there and knows a lot about the area and the diving.

It's probably not a very popular dive due to colder water conditions. However, surface temp was around 60F at Cooper Creek landing, above Branson, Monday of this week and would surely warm further downstream which would be tolerable. I would think vis would be good.

IIRC, Taneycomo is directly downstream from Tablerock, and fed from it's discharge. I haven't heard of anyone diving it either. You are right, it probably is quite a bit colder on the surface, but i doubt it would be much different than a deep dive in TR.

So locals....... what's the reason nobody dives this?

The reason we don't dive it is because the current is usually fairly strong, oh yeah and it's COLD. Did I forget to mention that if you're on a boat, you have to weave around between the fishermen. To sum it up, it's narrow, strong current, COLD, max depth I've found was around 20ft, and tons of fishermen. Hell, it's approximately 1 minute from my house....if it was a good dive spot don't think I wouldn't be tapping into it.:smiley36:

Reason enough to stay on the uphill side of TR dam.

Thanks for the info MM2002. I was also considering exploring because it seems less crowded than Table Rock.

Oh yeah, there's rocks, tree stumps, and sometimes fish (live ones). It's an awesome place to dive.

I went to Dewey Short yesterday & yes I saw lots of tree stumps, rocks, & even live fish. It was a good day we were the only divers there, Vis was 10-12 feet!! 61 degrees at 42'.

Well, there are several hidden treasures around Table Rock Lake, and by hidden treasure I mean pink flamingos at 97 feet near the dam. Also, I've seen a small concrete jockey fully equipped with cellphone, cb radio and jewelry at Spoonbill Bluff. To me, this is 'alot of good stuff'.

There's more than that too. I think it's not that busy, heck, I enjoy talking with the divers there anyhow and would be lonely without company.
