The Fly fishing in Beaver Tailwaters has been exceptionally good. Fishing the tailwaters of Beaver Dam should remain good. Norfork dumped trout yesterday (Friday) @ 11:00 a.m. Fishing should be excellent Saturday and Sunday below the dam.
Good new for fisherman wading. Water levels have dropped significantly and many areas that were not accessable during higher water have opened up creating more areas to fish.
The big tree blocking access on the upstream sidewalk at parker bottoms has been removed. AGFC have remove gavel blacking the stocking tude at Parker Bottoms. Now fish are being stocked in this area.
The browns can be caught using midges, streamers, hopper patterns.
For Rainbows, try drifting zebra midges, numphing and swinging small soft hackles.
