Stay Cool This Summer On Branson Lakes

As any Branson/Tri-Lakes area local will be happy to tell you, it can get a little warm here during the summer. The sun likes to make its presence known and the high humidity level will drive all but the most stalwart outdoorsmen inside. But staying indoors all summer is not exactly everyone’s idea of fun and enjoyment – so what can you do to stay cool in the sticky Missouri heat? Why, hit some of the area lakes for a summer of swimming, fishing and boating, of course! Don’t forget the sunscreen.

Swimming

Moonshine Beach on Table Rock LakeAlmost everybody loves to go for a swim on a hot summer day. Branson lakes provide some great opportunities to jump in and start swimming. Moonshine Beach, located on Table Rock Lake just across the dam off of Highway 165, is a fantastic place to swim. It is a true beach here is the Ozarks – complete with sand! For $5 per vehicle, you can bring your swim gear, your sunscreen, and a picnic and stay all day long. The whole cove at Moonshine Beach is roped off with a thick floating yellow cord, so swimmers know where the safest area to swim is. There is no lifeguard on duty at the beach, so make sure to keep an eye on your little ones and make sure that everyone in your group knows basic swimming safety rules. Then dive right in! The cool water may take a minute to get used to, but it’s one of the most refreshing areas to swim on the Branson Lakes. Moonshine Beach also offers amenities like bathrooms, showers, picnic pavilions (with barbeque grills) and a playground. So come enjoy some sand and surf in the Ozarks – plan a swim trip to Moonshine Beach!

Fishing

Branson Lakes are well known for their great fishing. Folks come from all over the country hoping to get a bite. The cold, crisp waters of Lake Taneycomo (short for Taney County Missouri) hold some of the nation’s best fishing opportunities – especially for trout! All year round, the Brown trout and the Rainbow trout in Lake Taneycomo make a great challenge for the avid fisherman. For a cool summer fishing experience, the shallow waters near the foot of the Table Rock Dam (next to the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery) average a chilly 48 degrees Fahrenheit – so don your waders and jump in! Lake Taneycomo is sure to keep you from sweating. Many record breaking Rainbow and Brown trout have been reeled in from this lake – it’s no surprise, what with 750,000+ trout stocked annually. If you want to beat the summer heat while still getting some bites, Lake Taneycomo is certainly the place to be!

Boating

If you’re the type who likes to be out ON the water instead of in it or near the edge, you are certain to love boating on Branson lakes. The State Park Marina on Table Rock Lake has all the ingredients you and your family and friends need for a safe, successful and fun boating experience! The State Park Marina offers boat rentals, wave runners, parasailing, scuba diving, guided fishing trips and unique watery tours aboard ‘The Spirit of America,’ the pride of the marina docks. The marina also features a boathouse store, where boaters can purchase all the staples for a day on the water – hats, sunglasses, snacks, sunscreen, fishing gear, inner tubes, ropes and life jackets are all available here. Once all boaters are wearing a properly fitted life jacket, you and your crew are ready to hit the waters of Table Rock for some boating fun!

Branson lakes are a great way to beat the Missouri summer heat. With a bit of planning and by following water safety rules, your trip to the lake is sure to be a memorable success!

Lake Taneycomo Cruises – Ride the Waters at the Branson Landing

There’s always something new and interesting to do in Branson, and exploring our area lakes is just one of the activities that so many partake of each year. However, there are other ways besides fishing, boating, and swimming to enjoy our lakes. Main Street Lake Cruises at Branson Landing offers a variety of opportunities for you to enjoy Lake Taneycomo without hassle.

Lake Taneycomo Main Street CruisesMain Street Lake Cruises opened its doors to the Branson Landing in 2008 with two magnificent boats to take you over Lake Taneycomo in. The Lake Queen is a modern day paddleboat replica, and the Landing Princess is a 100’ luxury yacht. There are a variety of public cruises to choose from, including romantic dinner cruises and narrated sightseeing tours of the breathtaking Ozark Mountains. Special events and holiday cruises also occur throughout the year.

Main Street Lake Cruises offers four daily sightseeing and dinner cruises. Each cruise takes from 1 ½ hours to two hours, and features different sights along the cruise route. The “Beach and Back Sightseeing Cruise” takes two hours to complete and gives passengers views of the beautiful Ozark scenery and wildlife. You will pass by an antebellum style mansion, the campus of Kanakuk Kamps, the Boston Gold Mine site, Rockaway Beach, and what legend has to be Al Capone’s summer home on the 100’ Lake Queen paddleboat. The Morning Sightseeing Cruise is another option. It is 30 minutes shorter than the Beach and Back cruise and omits the Boston Mine, Rockaway Beach, and Al Capone’s summer home.

The Dinner Cruise on the Landing Princess allows you to experience the same sites as the first two cruises, but adds a dinner service that is unmatched by others. Your service includes a delicious dinner, along with complimentary coffee, tea, water, and soda. A full service cash bar is available on this cruise. Dinner cruises must be reserved at least a half day in advance, so get your table reserved now!

The fourth cruise offered by Main Street Lake Cruises is the Sunset Cruise departing at 7:15 each evening. This cruise takes you past the same elements as the Beach and Back cruise, but in an entirely different perspective as the sun falls behind the horizon and you experience Lake Taneycomo not only by what you can see, but by what you can only hear. Father’s Day on the Landing Princess is just one of the special holiday cruises that occur at Main Street Lake Cruises. A special menu featuring salad, beef brisket and pork ribs, mashed potatoes, green beans, corn muffins, and a brownie with vanilla ice cream. The cruise will last two hours and departs at 12:15 p.m. and 5:15 p.m.

Aside from the scheduled special events, you can book your family reunion, wedding reception, or other special occasion with Main Street Lake Cruises.

Something’s Fishy at the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery

The Branson/Tri-Lakes area is known for its fish. We’ve got a little bit of everything here in the waterways of the Ozarks; we have crappie, bass, trout, bluegill, catfish, paddlefish, gar, sucker, carp – you name it, it is most likely swimming around here somewhere. But unless you are an avid fisherman, it is unlikely that you will ever see any of these fishy friends in your time on the lakes and rivers. So if you want to get up close and personal with some fish – more specifically, trout – visit The Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery, just on the other side of the Table Rock Dam, where there are some fishy goings-on that you certainly don’t want to miss!

shepherd-of-the-hills-fish-hatcheryThe Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery, located on the Lake Taneycomo side of the Table Rock Dam, is the very largest trout production facility within the Missouri Department of Conservation’s trout production program, which is designed to sustainably keep catchable trout within the waterways of Missouri. 1,125,000 catchable trout are bred, hatched, raised and released from the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery each year. The hatchery facility is built to handle all of the different phases and stages of trout production. After the brown and rainbow trout breeding stock have mated, the female trout stock will lay eggs. After she lays her eggs, the soon-to-be trout eggs are taken to the hatchery building, where they are incubated within jar style incubation units. After the eggs have hatched, the baby trout are reared indoors in the hatchery building in aluminum/fiberglass tanks. Once the trout have reached a mature enough age, they are moved outside to one of twelve concrete raceways and from there, the final rearing is completed in twenty raceways built for the big guys – the raceways are covered with large rolling hoop nets in order to keep hungry birds, such as herons, at bay. Once the trout are fully mature, they are discharged into Lake Taneycomo, where they will either swim happily away or wind up on the end of someone’s hook!

Visitors to the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery (over 250,000 every year!) can wander among the outdoor raceways and admire the trout. For a few quarters, folks can get a handful of trout feed pellets and toss them into the raceways for the fish – a glistening mass of shiny scales and splashing tails will follow as the trout all rush to gobble the food! Informational boards featuring photos of the trout and the entire hatchery process can be found at intervals around the raceway – so there is more to look at than just fish. Guided hatchery tours are available weekdays at 10am, 11am, 1pm and 2pm from Memorial Day to Labor Day – self guided tours are a year round option.

The trout are not the only attraction at the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery – though they are the main one. The hatchery boasts an information/nature center that is chock full of information about not only the trout, but the lakes and the other wildlife in the surrounding area. A large viewing tank that showcases some of the broodstock is a big draw to the nature center – you can get up close and personal with these fish and even take pictures! Other aquariums and tanks throughout the nature center hold critters like snakes, lizards and even a snapping turtle. There is also a movie viewing area where visitors can watch a short educational film about the hatchery and the trout production program. Four hiking trails are located just outside the hatchery – the beautiful scenery and some brisk exercise provide a nice change after meeting some fishy friends! If you decide you like the look of the trout and want to try your hand at catching some yourself, there are several fishing access points to Lake Taneycomo that are located near the hatchery.
