HEBER SPRINGS - Members of the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission joined local trout guides, educators and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service last week to teach 35 4th- through 6th-grade students about fishing and conservation of our aquatic resources at the 3rd annual Little Red River Fish Camp at JFK Park in Heber Springs.
Jimmy Crowl, an Oklahoma rancher who has been fishing the White River for 25-plus years, caught this brown trout at the Rainbow Bridge at Cotter, his first catch of a brown at the bridge site. No doubt this catch made for a happy day, and the water there is perfect for cooling off from this heat. Photo provided by Cotter Trout Dock
