Fishing By the Numbers

I’ve been spending some time at the upper end of the river this last week and in the area by the dam my fishers are catching good numbers of fish since it cooled down last week.  Saturday morning was a good 4 hours with 30+ fish caught and monday was another good morning with 30 + fish in the net.  We are also landing some good bows up to 19 inches and a good 20 incher or two a day.  Long leaders at 14 feet below the indicator with the proper split shot and reading the water fluctuations properly along with fishing the correct fly are leading to these numbers.  I won’t give away any secrets here but there are a couple of flies that are working like a charm at this time.  If you are planning a trip up to our area give me a call at 870-404-8906 and check out our on the river lodging at  The cabin has a private dock and boat ramp and is right on the river 35 ft.  Fly Fish Arkansas can also accommodate and arrange a group trip for your family or corporate outing.
