Arkansas Wildlife Weekly Fishing Report

April 13, 2023

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.

Randy Plyler, a fishing guide out of Arkadelphia and a regular contributor to the AGFC's Weekly Fishing Report, recently hauled in this 15.8-pound drum while fishing on Lake Ouachita, "the biggest drum I've ever caught. Had me excited for a minute," he said. The qualification for drum in the AGFC's Master Angler Program starts at 12 pounds, which puts Plyler in that category. The state record for drum is 45 pounds, 7 ounces caught in Lake Wilson in 2004.
