Arkansas Fishing Report: 2/11

Lake Maumelle: The Winter Series Championship was held at the lake last week and took 13.5 pounds to win. The largemouths and Kentuckies are grouped up together, but the Kentuckies are hitting a bit softer. The spring spawning run should begin in mid- to late February.

Arkansas fly fishing White River: John Berry from Berry Brothers Guide Service said the catch-and-release section below Bull Shoals Dam opened for fishing. There has also been a shad kill, producing a feeding frenzy that has to be seen to be believed. The most effective flies to fish during the shad kill are white streamers.

SpringRiver: The Spring River Fly Shop said the power is back on in the area, and the fallen trees have been cleared and the roads opened. The fishing has been excellent. The past storm has kept anglers off the water. My Go-Go Nymph has been the main fly for this week

AGFC Fishing Tip of the Week: As water temperatures begin to rise, fish will start to move shallow during the warmest part of the day in search of food. One of the best places to find fish during this time is along the riprap surrounding dams and bridges.
