White River, Arkansas - Fishing Report -
April 20, 2018
Stream levels are down near normal levels. Blue-winged olives are hatching. Light
green midges are hatching as well as the reds (bloods) and creams. Little Black
caddis, Giant Blacks and Little Brown stoneflies are hatching.
There is a chance of rain everyday for the coming week. Highs will range from 59
to 66 degrees and lows from 45 to 50 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 and White Belly Sculpin, size 6
LIttle Brown stoneflies, size 14, nymphs and adults
Giant Black stoneflies, size 4/6, nymphs and adults
Little Black Caddis, size 18, pupa 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 and White Belly sculpin 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.
Cinnamon Caddis 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.
Little Brown stoneflies and Giant Black stoneflies are hatching.
Little Black Caddis are hatching.
