Well, temperatures in the 80’s didn’t last long.  Summer has returned with a vengeance.  Mid to high 90’s are forecast thru the week of the 4th.  The bite on the upper and mid-river sections has been good and the lower river has been weak the last 4 days.  Insect activity has been better in the upper sections. Blue wing olive mayflies, midges and even a few caddis are hatching with the best fly choices being small pheasant tail nymphs and emergers, midge pupa and red-ass soft hackle. Sow bugs are taking fish when there is no insect hatch.
Generation should remain the summer pattern of afternoon releases of 4 to 5 hours on weekdays and shorter periods on the weekend.  Fishermen can check the proposed releases on the USACE Little Rock app or . 

Happy 4th of July and remember courtesy is contagious!  Have a safe and happy holiday.

Good Fishing!!
