Conditions : Little Red River: Lowell Myers says that Sore Lip’em All Guide Service reported limited water release from the Greers Ferry Dam is still creating low water conditions on the Little Red River. The recent rains have muddied the middle and lower sections of the river over the past few days. Forecasted rains will probably continue these conditions. The hope is that the forecasted rains will get the lake level back up to seasonal pool level, allowing for consistent scheduled water release from the dam. If fishing over the next few days, consider fishing the upper sections of the Little Red to avoid stained/muddy river conditions. Sowbugs, midges, soft hackles and Woolly Buggers are working well for fly anglers. Pink and white-colored Trout Magnets are recommended for spin fishing. Always check before heading to the Little Red River by calling the Army Corps of Engineers Little Rock District water data system (501-362-5150) for Greers Ferry Dam water release information or check the Corps of Engineers website (swl-wc.usace.army.mil) for real-time water release and the Southwestern Power Administration website (swpa.gov) to see forecasted generation schedule.

Greg Seaton of littleredflyfishingtrips.com (501-690-9166) said Wednesday that it is a complete washout up here. The river is high and muddy and until the rain quits and there is some generation, they will be washed out of any fishing. NOTE: Greg is offering a free fly-fishing class at First United Methodist Church in Heber Springs every Thursday through March 8. The class lasts for three more weeks (each Thursday night from 7-9 p.m). To register for this class, please contact Greg Seaton at 501-690-9166. Leave a message or text if he doesn't answer.

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.
