Conditions : Little Red River: Mike Winkler of Little Red River Fly Fishing Trips/Little Red River Fly Guides (501-507-3688) said the lake just hit its power pool level, and Army Corps of Engineers have been running one unit 24/7 to lower the water levels. Southwestern Power Administration projected releases, but didn’t execute any water runs. Keep an eye out for the generation schedule this week to plan your fishing trips accordingly.
Things are looking up here on the Little Red. The caddis hatch is in full swing, and the fish are loving it. Try using a Guide’s Choice Hare’s Ear or a soft hackle Pheasant Tail nymph under an indicator, adjusting the depth based on river levels. The streamer bite is on fire! Opt for an 8-weight fly rod with a 330 grain sink line. Double Deceivers and Peanut Envy flies are doing the trick, especially in yellow and brown or olive and yellow colors.

Fish ’N Stuff (501-834-5733) in Sherwood said Thursday the Little Red has been fishing really well of late. Rooster Tails, Rapala Countdowns and Maribou Jigs each have been bringing them in in good numbers. Also, a pink or white Trout Magnet will be a good call.
Wading is possible, you just have to pay attention to the generation schedule (see sources linked above). Pick and choose when they are running water.

About: - Little Red River: One of the most popular blue ribbon fishing and floating streams in Arkansas, the lower Little Red River are the tailwaters of Greers Ferry Dam near the town of Heber Springs. The Little Red eventually merges with the White River at the Hurricane Lake Wildlife Management Area just east of Searcy. The Ozark scenery is outstanding, and can offset one of those rare occasions when the fish aren't biting. The river is regularly stocked and for the most part fishes well all year round. In the cooler winter months larger browns tend to be more active.

The all-tackle, world record brown (40 pounds, 4 ounces) was caught in May 1992 in the Little Red River below Greers Ferry Lake by H. “Rip” Collins.

Access: The Corps of Engineers public ramp is located the north bank, next to the Federal Fish Hatchery, may be the easiest access to the upper portion of the river. Other public access points on the middle and lower stretches of the river. maintained by the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission, include Barnett (Winkley Bridge), Lobo (adjacent to Lobo Landing Trout Dock, Dripping Springs, and Ramsey. Four commercial boat docks also offer launch ramps.

Please note most of the land bordering the river is privately-owned and is posted.
