Big Flows and Big Streamers!

Big Flows and Big Streamers!

Big flows continue around the clock at Bull Shoals dam and most days around 20k cfs. Been having good success with our big streamers in 6-8" size. Great Lakes Deceivers Jointed in glow white, cotton candy and chartreuse have all produced. Also Slop Mop in 6" size. Got to these flies down and best line for this is the Airflo Streamer Max Shovelhead in 330grain. Search out the shallow water now - sunken island, sunken lawns and floodings.

The White River Trout Lodge

The White River Trout Lodge

The last two winters we have stayed on the banks of the White River at this wonderful lodge. No more searching for the future as we have found the prefect place for our future stays. Bill and Joanna own a true gem just upstream of the The Narrows and I highly recommend it to anyone looking for lodging in this area. With 3 levels that can have seperate entrances or openned all up it's the ideal place for 1 person to groups of 12. Lots of deck space for hanging out and enjoying the river. We provide meals right at lodge for our groups and prepare right here. Smoked pork and chicken, bbq chicken, lasagna, homemade chili and soup, corn beef, spaghetti and grilled steaks and pork are on the menu. For those cold nights you got to have nice fire place!

High Water Continues In Northern Arkansas.

High Water Continues In Northern Arkansas.

The past week high water around the clock came back to the White River. Flows have been 17-20k cfs with sluice gate at Bull Shoals Dam coming on most days adding another foot to the already high flows. Our big streamers (Great Lakes Deceivers and Slop Mop in the large sizes) have been producing some high trout the past week. It sure is not on fire but putting some nice trout in the net every day. Below our guide Eric Swies shows off a beautiful 30"er! We had some bright blue days with bitter cold temps early this week but still some good action fishing the flooded grass and islands. Here is Spencer with a beauty and not a cloud in the sky!  Top streamer was our 6" glow white jointed deceiver. With the high flows and cold temps of late been some good shad kills at Bull Shoals dam in the mornings. Fishing a floating shad pattern with a long dropper nymph or San Jaun worm can be very protective. When shad kill starts to run out switch to a lead eyes shad pattern or sparkle minnow under an indicator. Mario and Bill with some nice trout below fishing…
