SWPA, SouthWest Power Administration has been running two units usually starting at 3 pm and running till 7 pm or 9 pm. A consistent generation schedule is good for the fish and the early morning bite has been great fishing the falling water. Always check the USACE Little Rock app before heading out. The current generation schedule has opened up the entire river for wade fishing.

Start on the upper portion by JFK or Swinging Bridge in the morning then head down river in the evening as the water falls out. I've been fishing out of the boat and hitting the deep water around the moss beds with small Pheasant tail soft hackles and Guide Choice Hare's ears, midge's have been working good as well. Also try fishing anywhere there's moving water as the water falls out.
