Part Five: The Best Spot For You
Well, up until about a week ago the dam had been running continuously for weeks with at least a half a generator online. Problem: Not enough dissolved oxygen in the water to sustain the needs of the fish. This was caused by the record levels of water in the Greers Ferry Lake.
Besides the continuous generation to stir things up, Game and Fish was not stocking Rainbows upstream of Jon's Pocket. Their thinking was that it would stress current stock plus the stockers they were adding with the dissolved O2 being so low.
Drift fishing was still good, but of course, wading was, for the most part, not an option. This situation has passed for now, and as I was inspecting a great little cabin down on Mossy Shoals I encountered a guide in the river with a couple of "hires", and as I was visiting with him, his clients were hauling them out.
It was a good day for being outside, a good day to be on the water, and a good day to catch a limit of trout.
Why don't you take a day and come up to Heber Springs and find your perfect spot on the Little Red River.
