Lead Paint Removal from underneath Dam

Be aware that there is still work going on at the dam and there is some heavy equipment as well as a crane on the dam.  Lights with a maximum wait time of 4 minutes may slow you down.  The water temps on the river are at 43f which is pretty cold and has slowed the fishing down.  If however the water is shut off the bite has been very good on just about anything.  Thread midges of course along with SJ Worms, caddis type flies in drys, emergers and pupae are working well from three chutes down. Our latest cold front continues to move through with north west winds and hi’s in the high 40’s today.  Lower flows along with some shutdowns during the night hours are allowing some wade fishing further down stream.  Fishing this dropping water isn’t to bad as the fish are taking flies well .  The norfork has some day time shut down time as well so check the flow charts as well as the predicted generation charts for some idea ow what may happen.  I wouldn’t trust these charts however.  The phone number for the dam is 870-431-5311 for a report on generation.


Good fishing
