Always check the USACE Little Rock app for the generation schedule before heading out it is subject to change. The South West Power Administration. SWPA has been running a consistent generation schedule for several weeks now. Two units of generation Usually starting around 1pm and running till 7pm has been the the schedule for the last three weeks. I'd expect the same generation schedule to continue as long as we have temperatures in the 90's and a high heat index in the 100's. The weekend schedule has been similar with some reduced flows.

The current generation schedule has opened up opportunities to wade fish the entire river. The best bite has been early morning before it gets hot. Try fishing the deep holes and oxygenated riffles and along the moss beds. Drift fishing the falling water from the boat has been good.

Pheasant tails, Guide Choice Hares ear and Midges have been producing. Smaller streamer patterns on an intermediate line or sink tip have been working well while fishing the falling water from the boat. Try fishing an olive, or brown Slump-Buster or a cone head Wooly bugger.
