Conditions : Spring River: Mark Crawford with Spring River Flies and Guides said water flows are running at 278 cfs at the spring and water clarity is mostly clear. Low river levels makes for easier wading. The water has a green hazy shade to it – normal for winter months. Plenty of caddis and mayfly hatches through the day. With the warm-and-cold, up-and-down weather conditions, the trout will bite really well and suddenly turn off on some days. Olive Woollies and a new pattern that has been dubbed the El Diablo have been working great. And when the bite turns off, a dropper will keep things going. A small nymph behind a large fly will work. Hot pink and chartreuse Trout Magnets always produce. And the great thing about Trout Magnets are that they have no flavor and the trout always hook in the top of the mouth. Great catch-and-release tool for spin fishers. Good wading conditions, just don’t forget the wading staff. It's slick out there.

About: - Emerging near the Missouri border in northcentral Arkansas, the Spring River has been described as the state's most dependable natural stream. Mammoth Spring, flowing at over nine million gallons of 58-degree water per hour, serves as the headwaters for the river and provides plenty of fresh water throughout the year. Trout and walleye fishing are rated tops, and floating between Mammoth Spring and Hardy is excellent for beginning and intermediate canoeists. Many areas of the upper Spring River are popular with fly fishermen. Outfitters and launch facilities are available along the Mammoth Spring-Hardy stretch (17 miles). The river is crystal-clear, with long pools and whitewater falls. The scenery is mostly hardwood forest with some rocky bluffs.

Access is from U.S. 63, which parallels much of the upper Spring River.
