|I visited the nature center & fish hatchery below
the Table Rock Dam and fed the fish. About 800,000 10 inch trout are raised
each year. Most are used to stock Taneycomo, the 90 year old lake starting
below the Table Rock Dam.
Tours of the dam were discontinued after 911, but I stopped
at the Corps of Engineers visitors center. The hatchery is worth the visit,
but the visitors center is only good for its gift shop. I visited a scenic
overlook south of town, then returned to Branson to explore the old town
before heading home. The most interesting thing, to me, in the old part
of town was a '60s train which takes tours.
