June has been hot but the river remains cool.  The daily generation has helped the water temperature and the bite has been good.  Timing seems to be the key to a good day.  Fishing the section of the river when the water is low and clear with small flies has been the key to my fishermen’s success.  Size 16 and 18 mayfly nymphs and size 20 midge pupas seem to be the best choices.
Generation has been in the afternoons. Usually starting about 2:00 pm and lasting from 2 to 5 hours. This is a normal summertime pattern when the heat increases power demand. Fishermen can check the next day generation at USACE Little Rock (a free app on cell phones) by clicking SWPA Forecast or by calling 866-494-1993.

Good Fishing!!
