TRIP SUMMARY

We had an incredible morning on the Arkansas River. We found the key component of success to be starting our outing a bit earlier than usual. We were on the river by 7:30 am and the fish were already active and feeding. In the earlier portion of the morning, we found fish to be feeding in slower water and the middle of deeper pools. Early success came from Midge-based hatches, with a majority of eats being below the surface. We netted a fair amount of fish before the air began to warm using both Medalion Midges and Bling Midges in sizes #20-22. The off-color water from previous storms seemed to be the main reason for success. As the day moved on fish began feeding along the bank on small baetis and hopper patterns - Parachute Adams #20 and Chubby Chernobyls #14-16 all found themselves some trout. It was an incredible day of fishing, the Arkansas is certainly still fishing very well, and should remain that way for weeks to come.
