Some Low Water at Last

Both Bull Shoals and Norfork lake have finally hit the normal pool elevations.  We are finally seeing some low water on some days for a few hours.  Scud, various egg patterns, midges, sow bugs and the occasional bwo and dry midge are working.  The upper end of the river is the most wadeable if the water ran late into the evening; however the downstream end of the river below wildcat would be wadeable if the water has been left off for more than 24 hours.
