The area just above Cotter on the Bull Shoals Dam tailwater continues to be a hot destination for anglers looking to get into some nice trout action. The photo (right) is of a 27-inch German Brown netted earlier this week by a 13-year-old trout-fishing intern, hooked with a green and orange jig between the Rainbow Bridge and the railroad bridge. Our friends at Cotter Trout Dock say to stick with those jigs, especially in the low, minimum flow generation they’ve been fishing for the past two weeks. Take a variety of colors (brown/orange, tri-olive, ginger, ginger/olive) and switch the bait when you see the trout are bored. Drifting a mid-sized sculpin (1.5 to 2 inches) has tempted many a brown trout to chase a line this week, drop it on the calm side of a rocky structure and just wait, they say.
