While Hot Winter Fun is ensuring Branson visitors will find a healthy choice of shows available throughout the winter it is far from the only reason to pay a visit to Branson sooner rather than later. For anglers and outdoor enthusiasts in particular, this January 31, 2009 will mark the ever popular Masters Trout Championship with the Team Trout Championship following on February 28, 2009. Both fishing tournaments follow catch-and-release rules and will be held on Lake Taneycomo, with each offering a great time of exploring the natural beauty of the Ozarks while competing for cash prizes!
Hosted by Lilley’s Landing Resort and Marina, the Masters Trout Championship allows for two-person teams with cash prizes being paid out to the top four teams. And while the Masters Trout Championship is quickly approaching, participants are allowed to register right up to the start of the tournament on January 31. The registration fee is $50 per team.
The Team Trout Championship, also held at Lilley’s Landing, closely follows suite with the Masters. The registration fee is still $50 for two-person teams and registration is allowed up to the day of the event. And just as with the Masters Trout Championship, the Team Trout Championship will also be paying out cash prizes to the top four teams, as well as prizes for the both the biggest rainbow and brown trout.
As for the quality of fishing you can expect to find, Lake Taneycomo in the winter is a veritable hot bed for trout. In total, the Missouri Department of Conservation has reports stocking the lake with 46,800 rainbow trout throughout January, and another 39,100 in February.
