Northeast Arkansas fishing report

Northeast Arkansas fishing report

Lake Poinsett State Park said the rain and cold has kept most anglers off the water. No report.

Boxhound Marina (870-6704496) said the water is clear and the surface water temperature is 44 degrees. Crappie are fair on minnows in deep water. Bass are biting well on slow-moving crankbaits in deep water. No report on catfish or bream.

Lake Frierson State Park had no report.

Mark Crawford with Spring River Flies and Guides said water levels are at 500cfs at the spring and the water has a green color to it. The river has been slowly clearing up. It’s still a bit high for wading, but some can be done with extra care. White woollies and old yellers have been hot with Y2K’s doing well as always. Hot pink and red Trout Magnets and gold spinners have been working well spin fishing. It’s getting cold, so layer up and be safe. If you slip and get wet, get to a warm area as soon as possible.

Triangle Sports (870-7937122) said the water is murky and high. No report.

Local hunters clean up

The guys took their annual duck hunt to the 'Coca-Cola Woods' this week. The 22 degree morning didn't stop the ducks from coming in. Everyone had a good hunt and the young boys each shot a limit of ducks. After the hunt, everyone was very happy to get back in the warm cabin.
