  1. McClellands closed down a few years ago so no public access there. It is a great stretch of water and the only access now is by boat or kayak.
  2. Interesting story about that....It is designated as the Bill Ackerman Access on the entry sign and in the AGFC trout booklet. Bill Ackerman was the ex-commissioner of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission. He had a house just down River Ridge road from the access and he was instrumental in developing the access. What is interesting is that when we were looking at houses to buy up here in 2017 we looked at a house that was on the market at the time just down the road. When the real estate agent took us to the house we referred to it as the house close to Ackerman access. He said no... this is Bill Ackerman's house! Long story short... it was on our short list but we ended up buying a house just across from Cotter.
  3. Made a trip to Ackerman access this morning and the water was down to minimum flow. There were some caddis hatching along with lots of midges. Elk hair caddis worked good until the clouds came in around 10:00 and then the caddis hatch dissipated. I switched over to a ruby midge and caught this pretty cutthroat along with some more decent rainbows.
  4. Thanks, I understand the cutties spawn around this time of year so they tend to put on the pretty colors.

  6. Looks like they have not updated the flows for the White and Norfork since 10:00 last night. Seems strange they have so many problems keeping these pages working.
  7. Retirement is great. I highly recommend it.😄
  8. I made a trip to Ackerman access this morning after seeing the SWPA schedule for minimum flow for most of the day Friday. When I got there I was greeted by high muddy water that had backed up from the White river after the rains yesterday. So on to plan B... I drove up to the dam and water was low and clear. There were a few caddis hatching along with the usual midges but dry fly fishing was tough with the 20-30 mph north winds. I switched to an egg/midge combo under an indicator and ended the morning with a dozen stocker size rainbows, 1 brown around 17" and a couple of small cutties. Nothing picture worthy today.
  9. Can't get to the actual release pages either but the Projected Schedules page is working. https://swpa.gov/generationschedules.aspx
  10. Yes Rim Shoals or Buffalo City would be the closest options.

    Trip to dry run

    We moved to the Cotter/Flippin area in July 2017 and love the area. If you like to fly fish...I can't think of a better place.
  12. SWPA finally gave us some minimum flow water on the White river below Bull Shoals Dam. I got there about 11 this morning and there were some caddis coming off along with lots of midges. I had a pretty good day with around a dozen good size rainbows and 1 nice brown on the Elk Hair Caddis and then the wind came up and made dry fly fishing pretty hard. Wind was blowing directly opposite to the current. I switched to an egg/indicator rig and caught another dozen before I left at 3. I missed at least another dozen on the Elk Hair due to late hook sets. I guess I need to get my timing back. No pics as I was out in the middle of the river.
  13. Well you guys did a great job scheduling the Jigfest. Since you left SWPA has opened up the spillways at Norfork on top of maximun generation of the 2 units there and increased Bull Shoals to 330MW (7 of 8 possible units) all day today. Guess my only option for some wade fishing is the Spring river tomorrow.
  14. Wow, you guys put a whackin on the bass. I've been fishing here on the White for the last year and a half and don't remember ever catching a bass. Amazing to see a largemouth pic in the mix. That guy musta been lost.
