Thanks to Airhead he booked us at Gaston's for a couple of days. We should arrive February the 26th and fish through the 28th. If any of you are down that way, stop by.

Hey ralf;

I meant to tell you that I have family that lives in mountain home(sp) and probably could hook you up with a place to stay, Sorry I just plain forgot to post it.

That's ok Jerry

 

Thanks for the offer. It's just kinda weird bunking up at someone's house you don't know. Now if you and that "no-good son" of yours would join us... cool.gif

 

The rates were so cheap, it's not even an issue. 90 bucks for a 2 bedroom, kitchen, living room and fireplace for those romantic evenings...LOL bugeyes.gif bs.gif (I'll have to beat them with my 6wt.) All of that at one of the White's best resorts. Off-season rate wink.gif

Arkansas is under strict AR's (antler restrictions). There are no deer. laugh.gif laugh.gif Just like Ohio after Chromium killed the last doe. ohmy.gif tongue.gif

Shoe,

 

If you've never been there, you'll really enjoy Gaston's. Be sure to take in Rim Shoals for some really nice catch and release action. Also, kidnap a kid and take him to Dry Run Creek (under Norfork dam. Restricted to under 16 fishermen.) The Norfork is a great wader if they are not generating and Bull Shoals is. Also, if you want to wade and they are draining both lakes, take an hour trip to Mammoth Spring and fish the Spring River (spring fed... no generation worries) at Dam 3 or Bayou access.

 

Hope you enjoy. I'm only a couple hours from the White, so you might just see me out there that weekend.

 

Oh... and last time I was at Rim Shoals, a nice doe walked down the edge of the river and watched a group of us fish for about an hour or more. She walked right to the water and drank no more than 20 ft from one of the fishermen. So there is at least ONE deer left in Arkansas..... laugh.gif

ArkieFlyGuy,

 

Thanks for the suggestions.

 

This will be my 4th trip in the last 2 years. Never did fish the Spring River. All the other Shoals ring a bell. headbang.gif I took my retarded brother to Dry run, but the CO didn't buy it...lol Something about a 300 pound challenged individual drinking beer and whiskey

 

Do you have any "must have" patterns for that time of year? We never fished it in late Winter. 2 of the trips were in July and one over Thanksgiving. I keep reading about prolific midge hatches and some sulpher nymph action and of course shad

Three words..... OLIVE WOOLY BUGGERS!!!! thumbsup.gif That would be a "go to" for most fishing on the three rivers mentioned most any time of year. Shad and sculpin patterns are good. If you can find John Wilson's pattern for "Trout Crack" clapping.gif ..... different scud patterns do well.

 

Also, read The Ozark Chronicles Trout Fishing to get some information on the area. cheers.gif

 

Best advice I can give you.... Go to The Fly Fishing Arkansas.com website and join that forum. In the White River section, there are a lot of guys who fish the river year round. Get some ideas there. scooter.gif

I've been a member over there for a couple of years. Jimmy T sent me an email yesterday. Never did score one of the trout crack. Must be the best kept secret of the White rolleyes.gif

Well, it seems that Sippy is throwing me out of the house again on that particular weekend, so I'll have to go along. thumbup.gif

 

This should be another interesting trip. I need to start practicing my limp for Dry Run. wheelchair.gif scooter.gif crutch.gif

 

Challenged? Do I look challenged to you?

Shoe,

 

Click here and you owe me, bud!!!

Jimmy and the gang there have helped me a lot. Of course, a few of them I knew before I joined last month. If you look at Zach Matthews' Christmas fishing trip pictures, I'm the guy out in the middle of the river while they are eating lunch at Rim Shoals...... that little tiny spec in the background.... bugeyes.gif

 

My ex-wife said I acted like a three-year-old. Think that would qualify me for DRC?
