Can you go past what we call the fence row island farther downstream?

Yes just run back to the west side of the fence row (which is pretty much gone now) and look out for a couple of big rocks that are visible just under the water. After that smooth sailing all the way to Crooked creek confluence.

In light of this rain we're having, I'll share this email I got the other day.  I don't understand all of it but one thing I do.  If they get in a spot where they have to release a lot of water, it'll be bad for the fishery below BS dam.

Due to poor water quality conditions and maintenance on hydropower units, we are unable to make the authorized flood risk management releases without causing damage to the trout fishery.  Because of this we perused a deviation from the water control plan to reduce releases and maintain acceptable D.O. and temperature levels below Bull Shoals and Norfork dams.  The deviation will result in stages at Newport falling below 12 ft and prolonged empty dates at Bull Shoals and Norfork.  Below is a summary of current actions taken to improve tailwater D.O. conditions:

Beaver:
-  open vacuum breaker vents

Table Rock:
-  open vacuum breaker vents
-  ongoing LOX injection
-  effective without LOX RMGR

Bull Shoals:
-  open vacuum breaker vents
-  effective RMGR
-  reduced releases below authorized amounts

Norfork:
-  open vacuum breaker vents
-  effective RMGR
-  24 hr siphon operation
-  reduced releases below authorized amounts

Greers Ferry:
-  open vacuum breaker vents

All actions taken have worked to improve the water quality below the dams, however, as conditions continue to degrade our options will become fewer.  We do not anticipate any significant impact to the fishery at this time but October rainfall could further complicate the situation.  Feel free to give me call if you have any questions.
