Arkansas Fishing Report: 12/18

Because of the recent winter weather, and the upcoming Christmas holiday, the Arkansas Game and Fish is running an abbreviated Arkansas fishing report this week. Next week there will be no fishing report, and the December 31 Arkansas fishing report will be abbreviated as well.

Arkansas Trout FishingYour best bet to have a good day on the water this week is to try your hand at some Arkansas trout fishing. Arkansas fishing reports in Central Arkansas from the Little Red River confirm that the spawn is unbelievable right now; some anglers are reporting catches of more than 50 brown trout per day. There are some great wading opportunities on the Little Red River this time of year as well.

In North Arkansas, the Spring River is your best chance at pulling in some trout. There have been heavy hatches of white midges this week, and nymphs are heavy on the bottom. Have been having great success with mayfly emergers made with ostrich herl and small white wooly buggers tied with white ostrich herl on size 12 hooks. Trout have been hanging in deep water.

Come inside the Arkansas Fishing Forum for the complete, albeit abbreviated, December Arkansas Fishing Report.
