Norfork 4/23

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks, I understand the cutties spawn around this time of year so they tend to put on the pretty colors.

Yeah that's one of the prettiest ones I've seen you post.  Love fish in their spawn colors.  Can't wait to get back down there.  Still bummed we didn't get to meet last time due to the weather...

Beautiful fish. I am not familiar with ackerman access.

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.
