New White River access dedication set for Oct. 21
BETHESDA – The east side of Pool 2 on the White River has long been an Arkansas Game and Fish Commission priority location for boating access. While this pool is easily accessible from the west side at the AGFC’s Martin Access in Stone County, that access area does not serve eastside anglers very well. That is about to change with the construction of the Robert Gray Miller Access near Bethesda. A dedication ceremony for the new access will be held Oct. 21 at 2 p.m. to officially open the area.
