Greer's Ferry Lake is just .09 feet below power pool with all the rain we have had and is still rising. For the past week the SWPA, South West Power Administration has been running water on days when the temperatures are cold out and not been generating on days when the day time temperatures are warm.

Always check the USACE Little Rock app before heading out. They are always subject to change so check the release feature on the app to see if they are running water. The bite has been good for nymphing under an indicator in the falling water or streamer fishing in the high water. The hot flies right now are egg patterns and Mega worms or San Juan worms along with midge's. Or a small buggy pattern.

The streamer bite has been good when the dam is releasing water. I've had a couple of guide trips just throwing streamer patterns chasing after brown trout. We have been throwing Double Deceiver patterns in brown and yellow, or olive on a #8 weight rod with a 330 sink line.

Eric Antrim, from Fresno California was stripping streamer patterns and going after brown trout on a cold winter day on the Little Red River. Brown & Yellow Double Deceiver patterns were on the menu and the fish were liking it.
