Newland's Resort below Bull Shoals said water conditions are trending toward low flows during the day, including weekends. Popular baits have been shad, sculpins, pink artificial worms, Rapalas and Little Cleo spoons. Visit the Projected water flow page and live web cam at Newland's web site. (Updated 9-10-2014) Sportsman’s White River Resort (870-453-2424) said the water is low and clear, with minimum flow all weekend. Fishing was fair, but boating was poor because of the low water. most fish caught were rainbow trout on drifted live bait. Berry Brothers Guide Service (870-453-2424) said the hot spot was the section from Wildcat Shoals down to Cotter. The hot flies were olive woolly buggers, Y2Ks, prince nymphs, zebra midges (black with silver wire and silver bead or red with silver wire and silver bead), pheasant tails, ruby midges, pink and cerise San Juan worms, and sowbugs. Double fly nymph rigs have been very effective (try a flashback beadhead pheasant tail nymph with a ruby midge or red fan tail midge suspended below it). It is hopper time! There is a bumper crop of grasshoppers this year and the trout are already keying in on them. I favor shorter leaders (seven and a half foot 3X) and a stiff six weight rod to proper deliver these weighty flies. My favorite flies are Dave’s hoppers and the western pink lady.
