Spring River Report

Water levels are running at 375 cfs (350avg) and water clarity has been mostly clear. The river is looking great. Lots of bugs hatching. Bead head nymphs like a pheasant tail or hare’s ear in sizes 10-12 are working well for numbers. Catching some bigger trout on woollies in olive and brown. Hot pink trout magnets are always productive for catching trout and smallies on the Spring River.
The month of June has a lot going on at the Jim Hinkle fish hatchery. On June 9th from 9-2 pm there will be a kids free fishing derby for kids under the age of 15. Fishing Fridays will be on June 22, June 29, July 6, July 13 from 9-11 am. Free fishing for anglers 6-15 years old. Fishing skill instructions. Limit of 3 rainbow trout. Children must be accompanied by an adult and bring their own fishing equipment. No live bait. Anglers are encouraged to register for the fishing Fridays by calling the hatchery at 870-625-7521.
Tight lines and good luck,
Mark Crawford
