Soon both dams will cut loose with some major water as will the dams upstream of Bull Shoals.  The White and Norfork rivers in north central Arkansas are above normal pool elevation.  Bull Shoals is below

 For the past couple of weeks the water flows have been good and the fishing has been on fire.  As of yesterday generation on the white has ceased due to flooding on the mississippi and further up the white.  I don’t know how long this will last but perhaps a no generation patterns will persist for a week until all this rain stops.  Then of course the Big bull will cut loose with all 8 units I,m sure.

 

For those of you who are interested in Tungsten beads I have in stock most of the regular colors.  Copper, Black, Silver, nickel Black, Gold and nickel.  I’m out of 1/8 th black and 5/64 silver but will soon have them back in.  $4.00 per package of 25 and free shipping with an order of 8 packages or more.

I have 25 years experience guiding on the White River and have taught 100's of folks how to fly fish. I welcome newcomers. My casting instruction technique is simple, gentle, easy going and highly productive. All trips are catch and release only.
