FISHING REPORT:  MAY — CADDIS HATCH

We are now seeing much lower flows on the White River and have done so for a week now.  It’s nice to be able to see the bottom and where the fish are hanging out.  It defiantly helps increase the numbers of fish we are netting and allows me to target fish better.  After spending 20 years on the White River the fish pretty much still hang out in the same areas they always have.  The brown trout are moving back into their summer lies, the bows are also moving into their holding areas.  The catching is not real hard at the moment, but that is not to say that a morning or an afternoon isn’t necessarily easy.  The afternoons have generally been better fishing as the caddis hatch heats up.  These fish then go on a feeding frenzy which of course makes for a fun afternoon.

 

With these lower flows we are slinging much less weight that with the higher flows we were getting.  Drifting from my 20 foot 10 inch Xstream boat is very comfortable for two fisherman and provides lots of room.  On these flows I  row the boat down stream while you fish and catch.  All of your flies are put on for you and your fish are taken off and safely put back into the river as FlyFishArkansas does practice sport fishing by practicing catch and release so our youngsters can enjoy the great outdoors.  Got a little tangle? No problem.  We have another rod already to go for you so you can get back to catching.

Anyone can learn to fly fish.  It’s not that hard and learn while you are catching!
