Conditions : Spring River: Mark Crawford with Spring River Flies and Guides said water levels are running at 400 cfs at the spring and water clarity has been mostly clear. There was a steady rain for the last few days. The river did not flood. The forecast was for over 10 inches of rain and it did rain about 4½ inches over several days. The brown trout have been hitting small ostrich herl emergers near the surface and black ants. Guppies and Woollies have been hot on the main river for trout. White and hot pink Trout Magnets and white and silver Rooster Tails have been working well on spinning rods. Cooler weather this week has made for some nice days on the water.

John Berry in Cotter said the Spring River is fishing well. This is a great place to wade fish when they are running water on the White and Norfork Rivers. Canoe season is in full swing and there are a lot of boats on the river. You should fish during the week, if you can. Be sure to wear cleated boots and carry a wading staff. There is a lot of bedrock that can get very slick. The hot flies have been olive Woolly Buggers with a bit of flash (size 10), cerise and hot pink San Juan worms (size 10) and Y2Ks (size 10).

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.

  • Rainbow Trout
  • Brown Trout
  • Brook Trout
