Lou Gabric, who operates Hummingbird Hideaway Resort on Norfork Lake, celebrates a good day on the lake this week catching 8- and 13-pound stripers. Striped bass fishing on the lake is heating up and the white bass bite is outstanding, he says.
Cold weather that hit Arkansas this week has been ideal for catching trout on the Spring and White rivers. Jim Prillwitz from Wisconsin came for the state's "warmer weather" and caught this rainbow with guide Mark Crawford on the Spring River. Photo provided by Mark Crawford.
