Small midge pupas seem to be the fly of choice for the most part on the river for the last few days.  As the water stays low and clear the small flies seem to be the best choice.  Some fish are taking mayfly nymphs but the majority are still looking for the small midges. 

The water remains extremely low and if you're fishing the shoals you have to find the deep areas.  These seem to be holding the majority of the trout.  This area can be only a foot or two deeper than the rest of the shoal.

I have not seen or had any reports of brown spawning activity.  My client caught a nice 20" brown on Saturday but that was the only brown we caught.  We had good days Friday thru Monday with all rainbows. 

The only generation was two generators for 1 hour on Friday morning from 7:00 am to 8:00 am.  The river bottomed out by Saturday afternoon and remains that way thru today.  They have no generation scheduled thru tomorrow.


This report is included in the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission’s fishing report. If there is the lake or stream you plan to fish visit the AGFC's FISHING REPORT for current news on other great fishing and recreational areas throughout the beautiful state of Arkansas.
