Little Red River, Arkansas - Fishing Report -
March 21, 2017
The discharges and stream levels are currently just a little above normal but headed
up. There is rain in the forecast everyday for the coming week but one, and this
trend of high discharges may continue. Caddisflies are hatching very good.
7 Day Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain on Thursday and Friday,
otherwise clear for the next week. Highs will range from 55 to 71 degrees and lows
from 44 to 59 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Sow Bugs: 16
Little Black Caddis, size 18, pupa and adults
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6
Brown Sculpin and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
Spotted Sedges (caddis), size 14/16, larva, pupa and adults
Cinnamon Caddis, size 16/18, larva, pupa and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin are good flies to use for the larger size
trout. The Brown and White Belly Sculpin streamers are always a good choice. They
work best under low light conditions or in off color water.
Scuds and Sow Bugs are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Little Black Caddis are hatching. Cinnamon Caddis are hatching.
Spotted sedges, or caddisflies, are hatching.
We still think the best strategy is to fish a tandem Midge rig under a small strike
indicator with the midge lava as the bottom fly and the midge pupa as the top fly. Fish
the adult midge only when you observe trout feeding on the surface.
