The fishing is good on the Little Red with rainbows the best bite but browns are also adding to the mix.  I had a good afternoon on Sunday using an olive wooly bugger at the bottom of a shoal.  This was a little unusual since most of the action has been on small flies such as midge pupas and emergers (size 20).

The river has been very clear and with the slower currents, the presentation and light tippets have been very important to the angler’s success.

Please mark your calendars for the river clean-up on Saturday, September 9th.  Trout Unlimited Chapter 722 and Little Red River Foundation will sponsor this event with registration starting at 7:30 am at the pavilion on the campus of ASU Heber Springs and participants returning to this location to have hamburgers and hot dogs and all the trimmings at noon. Dumpsters will be provided at this location to deposit your trash.  Hope to see all of you there since this is a chance to help the river that provides a great deal of enjoyment to all of us.  Have a good time cleaning the river in the morning, sharing a good lunch with friends and fishing that afternoon.  If you have questions or want to register early for your section of the river and avoid coming to the pavilion before heading to the river, please call Greg at 501-690-9166 or John at 501-920-3825.

Good Fishing!!
