Our contributors to the Fishing Report fromSportsman’s White River Resort at Flippin, in north Arkansas, were quite complimentary of the work our trout biologists are putting in: “It’s like the rainbows are on steroids, and the Game and Fish must be coming something right!” They term the recent catches of rainbow trout there as “astounding,” with “more 14- to 18-inch rainbow trout than we’ve ever seen in the river.” Geez, we never thought we’d have anglers COMPLAINING about their trout, but that’s what was relayed to us: Because the law limits anglers to keeping only one fish over 14 inches there, they have to release the rest that were over 14 inches. So, it sounds like NOW is the time to be hitting the trout fisheries in north Arkansas (as if we haven’t been hinting as much for the past month, especially with the cool water available there to combat the heat wave that arrived a couple of weeks back and will be returning again). Take some pink Power Works, the usual Power Bait and some smaller crankbaits and give it a go. Meanwhile, guide Austin Kennedy also can’t seem to run out of great trout to catch over in the Beaver Lake Dam tailwater in that section of the White River, over in Northwest Arkansas. Austin sent us a photo of another happy customer (above right). Austin says the trout are very active, hitting on spoons of various sizes and colors, as well as various PowerBaits fished with light terminal tackle. Head to the hot spot, between Spider Creek and Parker Bottoms. Also, spotted bass are suspended around structure in the tailwater between Beaver town and Holiday Island; use soft plastics and suspended hard baits for those. Speaking of photos (in case you missed this note in last week’s email, and a correction on that text message number to call): If readers have any they’d like to share with the Fishing Report and have published, send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or text them to 501-580-1731. We’d love to have them. The higher the resolution, the better for our publication purposes.
