  1. That sounds good but I am afraid we will have some big water flow issues in August.
  2. Made a trip to the C&R area below the dam this morning since the water was still off color here at Cotter. They were running about 1 unit so that somewhat limits the areas you can safely wade. Saw a few sulphurs coming up and then around 9am they really started popping and that continued until I left at noon. Caught lots of rainbows including some pretty good ones as well as one 17" brown. Best flies were a size 16 parachute Sulphur and a size 16 yellow crackleback skated on top. Here is one of the better rainbows...
  3. Took the wife to the dam this morning to take advantage of a day of true minimum flow (which we may not see again for some time). Sulphurs were right on cue and started at 9am. We fished a very shallow area where you could see the trout cruising around and taking the bugs. It was mostly sightcasting with lots of lookers and quite a few takers. I lost a big brown that I would estimate was around 24". I saw him cruising and placed the fly about a foot in front of him and he came up and took it. He made a couple of jumps and then the hook pulled out. Here's a few pics... Check out the coloration of the adipose fin on the brown. I have never seen the bright red tip like that. Also a couple of nice rainbows. We estimated around 60-70 caught this morning, all on dries.
  4. Definitely hard to figure out their logic sometimes (well all the time).
  5. Hard to figure out why they are releasing so much water out of Table Rock as it is at the lowest level of the lakes on the White river system. Seems logical they would hold back some water in Table Rock and then release later.
  6. Here is a better pic of the adipose fin...

  8. You should have plenty of water to boat up to the dam.
  9. They also are delaying the Norfork floodgate releases. Here is some more info... https://ozarkflyfisherjournal.wordpress.com/2019/06/24/minimum-flow-tomorrow/
  10. Oh man, that brings back memories of trips past to Colorado. New Mexico and Utah. I haven't been to the Frying Pan, but lots of rivers in southern/central Colorado and of course the San Juan in NM. Beautiful places!
  11. Looks like they got quite a bit of water downstream on the White yesterday as I notice Norfork did not open the floodgates this morning. They were at minimum flow this morning and schedule says minimum flow tomorrow until early afternoon. Better take advantage while we can.

  13. Fishing at night with thunderstorms around...you guys are really mad at them.😄
