SWPA, SouthWest Power Administration has been running a good consistent generation schedule as of lately while we are having hot weather throughout the state. The SWPA has been usually running two units starting around 2pm. I'd expect to see the same generation schedule for a while or until we get some relief with cooler temps. Always check the USACE Little Rock app before heading out. 

The bite remains good even in the heat. Best bite has been early morning and late evening. With the temperatures in the 90's & 100's try to quickly land the fish and get them back in the water for a quick catch and release. Try fishing the deep holes around the moss beds and the oxygenated shoals and plunge pools. The hot flies for me have been pink San Juan worms. Pheasant tails, Guides Choice Hare's ear and Root beer midge's.
