This young angler is 10-year-old Corbin (no last name provided) from Texas, who lassoed this impressive 21-inch rainbow out of the Beaver Dam Tailwater in northwest Arkansas while fishing with guide Austin Kennedy. Corbin was fishing with chartreuse Fire Eggs. That's a memory he'll never forget.

Millwood Lake in southwestern Arkansas is widely known for behemoth largemouth bass, but anglers lately have found some behemoth crappie, too. Eddie McPherson from near Greenbrier landed this serious slab, while his friend Jim Elliot took the picture as they fished with guide Mike Siefert last week.

Taylor Goodman sent us this photo of his wife and the monster rainbow trout she caught on Saturday on the Norfork tailwater. The Goodmans didn't have official scales on hand and the fish was ready to return to the water, so they got no weight. But the fish was 30-plus inches in length with a girth of about 20 inches, allowing them to estimate this fish at about 18 pounds.

Winkler said that even with the high water on the Little Red, he's finding nice fishing opportunities for his anglers by fishing streamers.
