The river remains clear after a couple of days of heavier generation due to the extreme cold weather.  One hour of generation is scheduled for today and there will likely be low generation over the weekend.  With warmer temperatures the fishing should be good. I would suggest small tippet with sow bugs or small midge pupa and emergers.

Some browns are still carrying eggs but the primary spawn is about over.  Please remember to avoid the redds while wading the shoals until after February when the brown eggs should have hatched.

NOTICE:   I will again be offering the free fly fishing class at First United Methodist Church in Heber Springs beginning Thursday evening, February 15th.  The class lasts for 4 weeks (each Thursday night from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm).  These dates are February 15, February 22, March 1 and March 8.  It would be best to attend all classes, but if this not possible, come when you can. To register for this class, please contact Greg Seaton at 501-690-9166.  If I am unable to answer, I will return voicemails or texts.

Good Fishing!!
