Mark Crawford with (870-955-8300) said the trout being caught on the Spring River lately have been really nice sizes.

Bad weather over the last month has kept pressure off of the river, making for some great fishing of late. Water levels are running at 440 cubic feet per second and clarity has been partly cloudy.

Recent rains have the river above average flows. Extra care should be taken when wading the river.

Olive Woollies and Y2Ks have been the hot flies over the last few weeks. The trick lately is to get the fly down to the bottom with extra mends and weighted flies. Hot pink Trout Magnets fished deep below a float will get plenty of action, too, Mark says.
