Berry Brothers Guide Service (870-453-2424) said there was moderate generation in the afternoon and lower generation in the morning with abundant wadable water. All of the lakes in the system are well below seasonal power pool. With temperatures moderating, we should receive more wadable water. The catch-and-release section below Bull Shoals Dam is closed until Jan. 31, 2015, to accommodate the brown trout spawn. The state park area is catch-and-release fishing only for the same period. Night fishing is prohibited in this area during this period. The hot spot was the section from Rim Shoals downstream to Ranchette. 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, root beer 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 still hopper time. Try a Dave’s hoppers and the western pink lady. The higher flows that we have been getting on some afternoons have been conducive to fishing large streamers as well.

Sportsman’s White River Resort (870-453-2424) said the water is clear and perfect with some low flows in the mornings. Trout are biting well on pink worms and shrimp. Fly-fishermen are catching many trout on grasshopper patterns still.
