The river is clearing with cloudy water conditions except at JFK park where the water is clear.  Due to the heavy rains the lake level is now in the flood pool and increased generation is expected.  The White River is now at flood stage and Table Rock, Bull Shoals and Norfork are all higher in the flood pool than Greers Ferry.  This will cause the Little Red River to have periods of no generation to low generation until the White River is low enough to allow the corp to release additional water from Greers Ferry.  Right now, morning wade and drift fishing is available. Wade fishing at the park, Cow Shoals and Winkley Shoal and drift fishing elsewhere. 

Another front is to move thru the area Saturday night thru Monday.  If this occurs and there is a rain event, the river will again be high and muddy.

Check the predicted generation schedule for best times to fish.  Remember this is a predicted generation and not guaranteed.  The number to call for current generation is 501-362-5150.

Be Safe and Good Fishing!!
