There is a saying in Arkansas, “If you don’t like the weather just wait, it’ll change”.  Case in point, in one week we went from a low of -2 to a high of 74°.  If you add about 12 inches of snow to this, it was quite a weather rollercoaster. 

The snow has melted and it was a gradual event so the runoff didn’t muddy the river.  A slight stain below Sulphur Creek caused by the snow melt from the streets of Heber Springs. Generation has been minimal the last couple of days due to the mild weather.  As always, it’s best to check the forecast the afternoon before your trip.

The bite is a little slow with rainbows and browns taking midge pupas, egg patterns and micro jigs.

Good Fishing!!
