White River, Arkansas - Fishing Report -
January 10, 2019
The discharges and stream levels are running high but okay for larger size drift
boats. Light green midges are hatching as well as the Reds (bloods) and Creams.
Fish the larva and pupa rigged in tandem.
Weather Forecast: There is a chance of rain through tomorrow and again
Monday, otherwise clear for this coming week. Highs will range from 36 to 49
degrees and lows from 28 to 39 degrees.
Recommended Trout Flies:
Midges: Blood (Red), sizes 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Cream, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Midges: Light Green, size 20/22, larva, pupa and adults
Sow Bugs: 16
Aquatic Worms, size 12, pink, red, and others
Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin, size 4/6
Brown Sculpin, White Belly Sculpin and Articulated streamers size 6/4
Black Flies, size 18/20, lava, pupa and adults
Winter Stoneflies, size 16/18, nymphs and adults
Strategies, Techniques and Tips:
The Black Matuka and Olive Matuka Sculpin streamers are good flies to use for the
larger size trout, especially during low light conditions and when the water is running
high or off color.
The Brown Sculpin, White Belly sculpin and Articulated streamers are consistently the
best streamers to use on the White.
Scuds and sow bugs are available for the trout to eat year-round.
Aquatic worms are working.
Black flies are hatching.
Winter stoneflies are hatching.
We still think a good 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.
