How current river levels stack up historically

Posted by newswriter on August 23rd, 2012

Photographer Laura Simon captured this photo at Cape Rock earlier this month, demonstrating the low river level.

River levels along the Mississippi continue to drop, and are expected to stay low at least into fall.

The low water has caused closures of stretches of river — one 11-mile stretch just reopened — which has in turned caused the shipping business to take a big hit. In Memphis, the river level is reaching a record low. read more…

Col Ron’s Bull Shoals fishing report, August 22

Posted by Col. Ron Janota on August 22nd, 2012

Today was a great day on Bull. My two experienced clients caught 33 walleyes. I told them their job was for me to run out of bait, they almost did. I took 90 crawlers on the lake, transferred the remainder to the frig when I got home, having 15 left. We put in at Lead Hill and started about 5 miles down towards the fiery. Best depth was between 24 and 31 feet, bouncing using slow death. Great job Jerry and Brad.

White River Walleye on Worm Harness

Posted by Randolph Stainer on August 19th, 2012

Why many people avoid using worms and insist on artificial baits would make an excellent topic for a psycho-social doctoral thesis. I won’t be writing that. Instead, this article is intended as a primer for fishing worm harnesses in Tablerock and the other White River impoundments. What I will share comes from fellow walleye fishermen who have showed me a number of tricks. In particular, I want to thank Chuck Etheredge of Holiday Island, Arkansas. Chuck holds the Holiday Island Marina walleye record at 14.5 pounds, and he is the one who taught me about his harnesses for brush fishing crawlers. read more…

This fall’s basic fly fishing class

Posted by John Berry on August 16th, 2012

This summer has been the busiest one ever for my wife, Lori, and me. The low water and resulting great fishing that we have been having has definitely generated a lot of guiding and private classes for us. But as the summer is coming to an end we have begun thinking about our upcoming basic fly fishing class at Arkansas State University Mountain Home. The class is scheduled for September 6, 13, 20 and 27, four consecutive Thursday nights. The class is to be held on the ASU campus beginning at 6:00 PM and ending at 8:00 PM.

Lilleys’ Lake Taneycomo fishing report, August 16

Posted by Phil Lilley on August 16th, 2012

Summer can’t make up its mid whether or not it’s done with us or not. Hot temperatures the last couple of days with low 80′s in the near future. Generation has followed the heat pretty much. When it’s real hot out, they are running a bit more water in the afternoon and evenings but no more than 2 units. read more…
