Report by: BERRY BROTHERS GUIDE SERVICE  Fly Fishing For Trout            ABIGAIL’S BROWN Article
 

During the past week, we have had rain, (about an inch here in Cotter), warmer temperatures and heavy winds (to include lake wind advisories). The lake level at Bull Shoals rose one and five tenths feet to rest at four and four tenths feet below seasonal power pool of 659 feet. This is forty and four tenths feet below the top of flood pool. Upstream, Table Rock rose six tenths of a foot to rest at four and nine tenths feet below seasonal power pool and twenty and nine tenths feet below the top of flood pool. Beaver Lake rose one and four tenths feet to rest at five and six tenths feet below seasonal power pool or fifteen and two tenths feet below the top of flood pool. On the White, we had brief periods of heavy generation in the morning and afternoon with several days of wadable water. Norfork Lake rose two and two tenths feet to rest at four feet below seasonal power pool of 553.7 feet and thirty and seven tenths feet below the top of flood pool. On the Norfork, we had wadable water every day with generation most mornings.

The siphon to accommodate minimum flow on the Norfork is down for repairs. They will be running the generators on a speed-no-load option to make up for the lost siphon flows.

The water level for the top of power pool has been reset for the lakes in the White River system. All of the lakes on this system are well below seasonal power pool.

The Catch and Release section below Bull Shoals Dam was closed from November 1, 2014 to January 31, 2015 to accommodate the brown trout spawn. The State Park was seasonal Catch and Release for the same period. There are redds in the area. They will appear as shallow clean depressions in the gravel.  Please avoid them when wading or dragging chains to protect the eggs in them.

On the White, the hot spot was Rim Shoals. The hot flies were olive woolly buggers (#8, #10), Y2Ks (#14, #12), prince nymphs (#14), zebra midges (black with silver wire and silver bead or red with silver wire and silver bead #16, #18), pheasant tails (#14), ruby midges (#18), root beer midges (#18), pink and cerise San Juan worms (#10), and sowbugs (#16). Double fly nymph rigs have been very effective (try a prince nymph with a ruby midge or red fan tail midge suspended below it). Egg patterns have been very effective.

Conventional wisdom states that hopper fishing ends with the first frost (we had several heavy frosts this past week). I reject this idea and fish them during the winter. 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 (#10) and the western pink lady (#8). To increase hook ups I always use a dropper. I am currently using a ruby or root beer midge in size eighteen on a three foot or longer tippet (depending on the depth of the water I am fishing).

The higher flows on some mornings and afternoons have been conducive to fishing large streamers. You need a fast sinking sink tip line and an eight weight or better rod. This is a heavy lift that requires casting skills and patience. Streamer season started on opening day! The most popular patterns have been large articulated streamers in tan and yellow and olive and yellow.

The Buffalo National River and Crooked Creek are stained and high. With the colder weather, the smallmouths are not active. Carefully check the water level before entering Crooked Creek or the Buffalo River. There are no dams on these streams. They both have large drainages and are prone to flooding during and following any rain event. The water can rise very quickly.

The Norfork River has fished a bit better recently. With the colder weather there was little fishing pressure on the Norfork.  The most productive flies have been small midge patterns (#18, #20, #22)  like ruby midges, root beer midges, zebra midges (black or red with silver wire and silver bead) and soft hackles (#14, #16) like the green butt. Egg patterns have also been productive. Double fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small bead headed nymph (zebra midge, copper John or pheasant tail) suspended eighteen inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm (hot fluorescent pink or cerise #10). There have been reliable hatches of small midges (try a size 24 Adams parachute) and caddis (try a size 18 elk hair caddis).The fishing is better in the morning and late afternoon and tapers off midday.

There was more fishing pressure on Dry Run Creek due to spring break. It has been a great time to fish there. The hot flies have been sowbugs (#14), Y2Ks (#12) and various colored San Juan worms (worm brown, red, hot fluorescent pink and cerise #10). While you are there take a few minutes to visit the adjacent Norfork national Fish Hatchery. It is fascinating. Be sure and remove your waders before entering to prevent the spread of aquatic diseases.

The water on the Spring River is stained and high. This is a great place to wade fish, when they are running water on the White and Norfork Rivers. Canoe season is over and there are fewer boats on the river to interfere with your fishing. Be sure to wear cleated boots and carry a wading staff. There is a lot of bedrock that can get very slick. The hot flies have been olive woolly buggers with a bit of flash (#10), cerise and hot pink San Juan worms (#10) and Y2Ks (#10).

Remember that the White and Norfork Rivers and Dry Run Creek are infected with didymo, an invasive alga. Be sure and thoroughly clean and dry your waders (especially the felt soles on wading boots) before using them in any other water. Many manufacturers are now making rubber soled wading boots that are easier to clean and are not as likely to harbor didymo.

 COTTER TROUT FESTIVAL THIS WEEKEND 

BY JOHN BERRY 

One of the things that I love about this area is the many festivals we have here that are sponsored by the various small towns. As a Cotter resident, I may be prejudiced but I think that the Cotter Trout Festival is hands down the best. For me the main draw is where it is held, Cotter’s Big Spring Park. This is a lovely spot on the White River that has several features that makes it one of the best public parks in the area. 

There is, of course, Big Spring, a large natural spring that is the local swimming hole, complete with a rope swing. The spring draws locals and visitors during warm weather. When my grandchildren visit, this is their favorite spot. There is a trout sanctuary in the outflow from the spring that is a Catch and Release fishery for children and the handicapped with regulations like Dry Run Creek. Along the sanctuary there are several sheltered picnic tables with charcoal grills. There is a bridge spanning the stream that allows you to access a nature trail or the White River. 

There is a covered pavilion for large groups and a charming gazebo. There are clean public restrooms, a lighted baseball field and a river access complete with a nice ramp. There is a strong identity with Cotter’s past as a major railway hub, in the park. There is a statue of a railroad conductor, a couple of railway cabooses and several interpretive signs.  

The idea of a trout festival in Cotter is logical. Our water tower proudly proclaims our title as Trout Capital USA. Fishing is the primary business here. There are classic trout docks, lodging, restaurants, and a fly shop all catering to the needs of trout anglers. There are several professional guides (including myself) that call Cotter home. 

The Cotter trout festival will be held in Cotter’s Big Spring Park on Friday, May 2 from 4:30 PM till??? and Saturday, May 3 from 7:00 AM until 4:30 PM. Admission is free. This is a family friendly affair and a great way to entertain everyone at a low cost. 

Friday is dedicated to the arts. My friend, Sandy Barksdale, has put together a plein air painting event in Cotter. There is a quick draw competition from 4:30 PM till 5:30 PM with judging at 5:30 PM. There is a barbeque dinner at a nominal cost with entertainment supplied by Cutthroat Trout Jazz Band. They performed at the Trout Nature Center Banquet last week and I really enjoyed listening to them. 

Saturday is a busy day starting with breakfast at the Cotter VFW at 7:00 AM. There is our annual parade at 9:00 AM. The Arts/Crafts/Exhibitors/Commercial booths all open at 9:00 AM. There are kid’s games, the AG&FC shocking boat and stocking raft. There is the fishing hole and fly casting instruction and fly tying demonstrations supplied by the North Arkansas Fly Fishers. There is a car show and several bands (Gravel Yard Blue Grass Band, Rio and Kent and Becky Coffey) for entertainment. 

As you can see there is something for everyone. I hope to see you there. 

ASK JOHN 

Wanda Windknots asks: are there any hatches happening on the Norfork?

Wanda, there are the usual midges, some caddis and the occasional small mayfly.

The Overall Picture:  

As of Monday, 23 Mar, the lake level jumped over 2 feet in elevation, and is approx 28 inches above normal conservation pool and rising.  There is increase of current of Little River with the gates releasing around 20,000 CFS Monday.  Extreme caution urged for boaters during navigation, with limbs, logs, and entire trees coming downriver in heavy debris fields.  Water temps stable over the past week.  Navigation is considered extremely hazardous for Little River, as of Monday.  Several river buoy markers are missing in Little River with extreme heavy current. 

Surface temps as of Monday, are ranging approx 40ºF early to 45ºF range, depending on location.   

Lake level is currently is 261.55 ft-msl, with heavy increased river current.   Normal consv. pool is 259.20 feet.  Discharge rate near 20,000 CFS as of Friday.  Tailwater level 246.97 rising rapidly. Clarity and visibility is diminished and muddy most lake wide and Little River and Saline River inflows.   

As of Monday on main lake structure away from current, clarity & visibility ranges approx 0 inches.  Entire lake is heavy stain to muddy from Yarborough Landing to Cottonshed, Okay, and east to Saratoga, all sectors of the lake is muddy from current from all incoming rivers.  Little River's visibility ranges 0 inches depending on location and current.  The oxbow's clarities remain heavy stained to muddy in places, ranging approx 1-5 inches depth of visibility more or less, depending on location.  Clarity and visibility can change dramatically on Millwood in just a few hours with high winds, rain, thunderstorms, or increased current.  

The Details:  

Largemouth Bass:  the Bass activity levels dropped off over the past week with incoming cold muddy water. Most Bass are lethargic and scattered, over the past week with continued freezing temperatures during the night and cold incoming rainfall and heavy current, keeping surface temperatures lower than normal for this time of year.  

Bass continue remaining at their most aggressive during the warmest time of the day, typically noon-3pm, hitting slowly moving target crankbaits, Rat-L-Traps, and a few soft plastics.  For the past 2-3 weeks, bass were fair to good on swim baits, chatterbaits, jigs, and crankbaits.  Best color of Real Deal Custom Tackle jigs over the past few weeks has been the black and blue, Tx Craw, or VooDoo.  This was working in ditches and creek channels on stumps, and points extending into the river from 9-14 feet of depth prior to the influx of muddy high water and current.  Big Bass were caught, two six pounders and an 8 pound Largemouth, week before the rapid muddy rise, in south Hickory and the Millwood State Park. 

Bomber Fat Free Shad cranks in Dance's Crawfish, Firetiger, or a "Flat A" in Apple Red Craw were getting  reactions during the warmer period of the day, worked slowly and deflecting off stumps and cover.  Clear water seemed to be their preferred hang out, which is now mostly non-existent.  Crankbaits moved erratic; stop and go, were the best bets to draw reactions and get bit, but most active during the warmest period of the high sun over the past few weeks. 

Chatterbaits in Texas Craw, black/blue, and Ozark Craw were beginning to catch 2-4 pound Largemouths, on warm days in stained water around cypress trees, dead lily pad stems, and grass.  No matter which color skirt used on the chatterbait, a black trailer seems to stand out better and draw more reactions.  Several 8 and 9 pound Bass have been caught on this combination at Millwood over the past few weeks, again, this was prior to the recent 2 foot rise of muddy water and current. 

Big 3/4 oz, slow-moving Rat-L-Traps were also working over the past couple weeks also, with the best colors over the past few weeks being Red Shad, Red Chrome, 'Lectric Red, McCraw, and Red Zombie colors before the rapid rise and current.  Moving the Traps slow and deflecting off stumps in creek channels adjacent to large warming flats, much like the lipped crankbaits on warmer, bright sun days seemed to be the best pattern.  Best bite was in 8-12 feet of depth with stumps and cypress knees in the deeper water, moving slowly and deflecting off timber and stumps with a brief pause at the deflection point. 

White Bass:  Whites, which were located upriver btween McGuire and Cemetary slough, trolling crankbaits before all the cold freezing rain, sleet and snow, and rapid 2 foot rise of muddy water dissapeared over the past couple weeks.   

Crappie:  no report since all the muddy current inflow over the past couple weeks in increase in discharge at the dam.  Not many Crappie fishermen out on the lake. 

Cats:  no report.

Surface temps as of Monday, 9 Mar currently range 40ºF to 45ºF later in the day under full sun. 

As of Monday, 9 Mar, Millwood Lake level jumped over two feet in elevation and is approx 28 inches above normal conservation pool and rapidly rising.  There is huge increase of current in Little River with the gates releasing around 20,000 CFS with huge debris fields of logs, limbs, trees, and other damaging debris.  Boaters need to use extreme caution during low light or other navigation. Water temps stable over the past week with the freezing rain, sleet and snow.  Navigation is considered extremely hazardous for Little River.  There are a few river buoys missing in Little River. 

Lake level is currently is 261.55 mfsl, rapidly rising with extreme heavy current and widespread debris fields.   Normal consv. pool is 259.20 feet.  Discharge rate around 20,000 CFS.  Tailwater level also rapidly rising at 246.97 ft-msl as of Monday and lots of discharge and current below the spillway. 

Clarity and visibility worsened over the past week, in most areas on main lake and Little River from recent thunderstorms, incoming high, muddy water and inflow.  As of Monday on main lake structure away from current, clarity & visibility ranges approx 0 inches.  Little River and Yarborough Landing all the way to Cottonshed and northeast section of the lake are muddy and heavy stain from all river's inflow.  Little River's visibility ranges 0 inches depending on location and current.  The oxbow's clarity continue worsening away from current, ranging approx 1-5 inches depth of visibility depending on location.  Little River muddy from above highway 71 to Yarborough.  Clarity and visibility can change dramatically on Millwood in just a few hours with high winds, rain, or thunderstorms.

Report by: Lou Gabric of Hummingbird Hideaway Resort

Night fishing for striped bass is one of my favorite methods of fishing in the spring. Every year around mid March the striped bass, hybrid bass and walleye move up to the shorelines after dark to feed. I have fished the last two nights with success each night. Two nights ago the big fish were up tight on the banks.  

I landed 3 nice fish, one walleye, two stripers and had quite a few other missed opportunities. I guess I am a little rusty and did not get good hook sets. My last fish of the night, around 9:30PM, just exploded on my bait in about 2 feet of water. I could actually see the fish come out of the water (amazing with these old eyes) roll over on the line and then, you guessed it, the line broke. Last evening was a good bite but the fish were on the smaller size, keeper size, but not big enough for me to keep. I had a blast both nights and hope to get out again this evening if the rain holds off. The method I use to fish for these Norfork Lake monsters is to cast a 5 to 6 inch suspending jerk bait. There are many brands and many different prices, but all will work. I have used Smithwick Rogues as well as Spro's. I seem to get a little better action on the Spro's in colder water and the hooks are stronger. If you go with the Rogues you do need to change out the hooks and split ring to stronger ones or you will get very disappointed when both bend out and you lose that big fish. There are two different views on where to position your boat. The first is to get your boat close to the shoreline and cast parallel along the shoreline. The thinking here is that you will keep your bait in the strike zone longer for those feeding fish. The second is to keep your boat as far away from the shore as possible and still be able to cast to the shore. I typically keep my boat away from the shore and cast into it. My belief is that I won't spook the fish with my boat and I have also found that the fish will follow the bait and hit it in deeper water and not always on the banks. Cast your bait as close to the rocks of the shoreline as you can. The retrieval method is simple, reel as slow as possible. If you think you are reeling slow, reel slower. Color choice of your bait is a personal preference, but I typically go with dark backs and light bottoms on overcast and new moon nights and lighter tops and darker bottoms on full moon nights. I have caught many fish on various colors, greens, blues, purples, orange, you name it. If you’re not getting hits on one color change out until you find the color they are looking for. We have a good selection of both baits for sale at Hummingbird Hideaway Resort. Where to find these Norfork Lake monsters is the next question. I have recently been fishing part way back in major creeks. I start on secondary points and work both sides of the point along the shoreline. Typically you will find the fish on long shallow points close to flats, but over the last two days I have also found the fish on deep bluff line points. Once the water warms up a little more they will move out to the main lake points and typically be feeding on the long shallow points.  

I find stripers and walleye all over at different times, but usually have to look a little. I have also found stripers in the backs of small creeks in very shallow water. I will usually mark fish and bait in the area that is active.

Norfork Lake water level is rising slowly with the rain and snow we have had over the last week or so and currently sits at 550.22. The surface water temperature is also on the rise and was at 47 degrees last evening. The water is turning very clear with stained water in the backs of creeks and coves.  

Another great enticement to fish our lake is our second annual Norfork Lake Fishing Derby. You will have the opportunity to win up to $1,500 for a very small investment. Give me a call for details at 870-492-5113. The derby runs from March 1 to June 15.

Fall Striper Tactics   As fall approaches Lake Norfork water temperature will continue to lower. As the water cools the thermocline will continue to drop until the water equalizes and the lake will turnover. Turnover is the process where the bottom part of the lake rises and the top part lowers. It happens every year. You can tell by the smell on the water, you will see lots of scum, leaves, and the water will be off color. The fish will quit biting for about a week as they need to adjust to the change.

With the disappearance of the thermocline the stripers are free to roam the entire water column. Oxygen is at all levels of the water column. The turnover does not happen all at once on the lake. The northern portion will be the first, then the mid-lake area near the bridges, and finally the lower or southern end. The upper end will be done by the end of Sept. while the lower end maybe mid October. It all depends on the weather. The colder it gets the sooner the turnover begins. Once the turnover is over the stripers are free to move anywhere on the lake and you will find them at all levels of the water column. Topwater action can happen anytime the day as they chase this year’s hatch of shad. If you’re on the water you will have the opportunity to catch stripers by finding the bait fish and the stripers will be close by. As the water cools the stripers will move from the main lake to mouths of creeks. Start looking in the Hand Cove, Georges Cove, and Diamond Bay areas as the stripers move away from the dam. Some stripers will be found in the dam area until winter but a lot of them will make the move. Mid-lake stripers will move to the Robinson Point area, they can be found on the flats and channels feeding on shad and stay there until winter. The Cranfield area, Red Bank, and Calamity areas will hold lots of fish. Calamity Beach is the first place I start to fish as the turnover begins. The water is shallow and the bait is usually found everywhere. Live gizzard & threadfin shad is and will always be the most productive method to catch stripers. Shiners and artificial lures are also very effective. The best places to buy shiners is 101 Grocery & Bait and Hand Cove Resort. They both carry shiners all fall, winter & spring. Shad will begin to school so look for bait fish balls and note the depth. A good depth finder will help you find the stripers. They will be moving around so stay close to the bait. Your fall striper tactics will begin to change until winter fishing begins. I continue to fish with down lines but start adding floats and planner boards. The stripers will start getting into the shallow depths. When I’m fishing the northern or river area of the lake I fish 8 lines, four down lines, two planner boards, and two floats. All the lines are set at different depths until I can determine where I stripers are feeding. Artificial lures is very effective. The key is matching the size and color of the bait fish. If the stripers are feeding on 1 & 2” shad make sure your lure match’s the size. You can throw or troll the wrong size and not get a hit if it's too big. Also make sure you match your spoon to the bait.

Norfork Tail water

Updated 3/27/2015

Report by: Steve Olomon of Steve's Guide Service 

The lake level is 554.2

The bass are coming up early and just before dark hitting topwater baits. There are a lot of short fish but  some good fish are mixed in with them. Throw a white or clear Zara Spook Jr. After that you will need to fish with a worm, jig, drop-shot rig, or drop a jigging spoon. Most of this activity is in the creeks on points and channel swings. Start looking for stripers down around 40ft. and you need to get you bait or lure down to where you see them. Look in the Big Creek area, Diamond Bay, and down around the dam areas. There have been some whites hitting jigging spoons in the creeks and in some coves around 34ft.
