SWPA, SouthWest Power Administration has been running a consistent generation schedule for the past month. Always check the USACE Little Rock app before heading out it's subject to change. With the day time temperatures being in the 90's and a heat index somewhere in the 100's. The SWPA has been running two units of water usually starting at 2 pm and running till 7 pm. On the weekends we have had a similar generation schedule but with some reduced flows. I'd expect the same generation schedule to continue until the temperatures start to come down a bit.

As of Wednesday August 17th the temperatures came down and the generation schedule changed along with rain in the forecast. At 2pm SWPA started running two units of water, for two hours. Let's see if this continues as the temperatures start to drop a little.

The best bite has been early morning before it gets hot. Try fishing the deep holes and oxygenated riffles and alongside the moss beds. The falling water has been fishing well. Pheasant tails, Guide Choice Hares ear and Midges have been producing while fishing  an indicator rig. Small streamer patterns on a sink line have been productive fishing the falling water from the boat.
