After receiving about an inch of rain on Monday, the river is clear with more water than last week. The colder weather has caused an increase in generation.  On Tuesday, generation was 3 hours beginning at 5:00 pm. Today (Wednesday), the generation is scheduled for 2 hours beginning at 6:00 am and again for 3 hours beginning at 5:00 pm. Be sure to check the schedule before planning your trip.  This can be found on USACE Little Rock app under SWPA Forecasts. Next day forecasts are posted after 4:00 pm and on Friday the forecasts are posted for Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  Current generation can be found under releases on the same app.

The bite is good using mayfly nymphs, sow bugs and midge pupa.  Rainbows can be found in the slow and fast water while the browns are more in the moving water.  The brown spawn is still going on but it has been sporadic this fall.  Some browns we are catching have spawned out while others are still carrying eggs.
Please be careful while wading to avoid the redds!! The eggs remain in these areas until about February.

There is still time to get that Fly Fishing Trip Gift Certificate for that special person for Christmas.  Just give me a call or send an email.

Good Fishing!!

Wishing All a Blessed and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
