Fishing Waters
Best known for its trophy browns, this is a place to also find brook, cutthroat and rainbow. Like other rivers in the area, this 100 mile tributary of the White is host to dams and ... morereservoirs managed by the Army Corp of engineers. For anglers, the 30 mile run below Greer’s Ferry Dam is the most famous and desirable section of the river. In the spring of 1992, the 1988 trout record was broken here by the capture of a 40+ pound whopper. This record has since been topped although it remains the largest to be netted in Arkansas waters.

//

Cold water releases from the dam keep the river at about 47 degrees year round, creating ideal trout habitat but challenging for its native walleye and bass. Efforts to reintroduce small mouth bass and walleye have met with measured success. Spring and summer tend to be the busiest seasons, although many consider fall the best time to fish as the brown migrate upstream to spawn. Spawning starts mid-October and is complete by the first of December. Brook trout also spawn successfully in the Collins Creek area while cutthroat are sparse and tend to be found downstream of Winkley Shoals.

Because water flow is managed for regional electrical production, levels can quickly change. While it’s possible to wade in these waters, it’s smart to be cautious. When levels are high, fishing with an expert guide is highly recommended. The state enforces catch and release rules in three areas: below Greer’s Ferry Dam; around Cow Shoals; and, between Dunham and Mossy Shoals.

Before booking a trip, be advised that portions of the 30 mile run are privately owned and may be difficult to access, water levels vary dramatically and three sections are catch and release only.
Destination

We are one of the only guide services in our area that offers both fly and spin fishing trips for our clients. Our guide trips consist of float fishing in one of our fully equipped ... morecomfortable Supreme riverboats.

If you would like to wade-fish during your trip, you will need to bring your own waders. We also recommend sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen for protection and comfort.

For safety, we do not fish in potentially dangerous water or weather conditions. Since we fish on tailwater fisheries, there are scheduled and unscheduled water releases through the dam that can cause high water conditions on the river. If either of these unsafe conditions results in a cancellation, we will be happy to reschedule your trip.

We generally practice catch-and-release, however if you would like to keep your limit of trout for a meal, we would be more than happy to filet them for you.

While other fishermen on the banks were reeling in wet bait, we made a day out of catching over 70 trout! By far the best guided trip I’ve ever been on and I can’t wait to book another one!

I have been fortunate to experience fantastic guides across the country in both salt and fresh water. James has pure talent and a passion for his craft. He is exactly what one should look for when searching for a guide.
