Current water conditions through out the White River system has been moderate generation. The White River has seen around the clock generation from 4,000-10,000 CFS, Fishing has been slow to moderate with the colder than normal water temps. The Caddis hatch has been non existent because of the heavy flows and I am afraid we wont experience the hatch we had last year because of the colder temps.
The Norfolk has been fishing very good: With water conditions from 0 units to 1 unit or 184 CFS (MF) – 3,000 CFS. Fish are focusing on midges and some very nice fish have been caught. My flies of choice have been #16-18 BH Zebra midge, Prince, Stinnett Midge. Color has been Camel brown. On higher water a san Juan worm with a midge dropper has been deadly.
The White River system offers the finest fly fishing experience in the Midwest. Trophy browns of 20″-24″ are common with the chance of landing a 30″er….The rainbows on the Norfolk are colored up like a rainbow and its very common to land the Arkansas grand slam, with a rainbow, brown & cutthroat.
Now is the time to break away from the winter doldrums and fish the White River system..give me a call.
