A recent trip for a group of friends to Lake Conway produced a great day of fishing for redear sunfish. Two of the anglers were Kayce Wilson (who works at the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission) and McKenzie Peters, who are holding up a couple of the nice shellcrackers that eventually resulted in a nice fish fry afterward.

Braelyn Bridgeman, age 13, and his uncle Kyle celebrate the catch of a golden rainbow trout on Memorial Day. The trout was caught right above Crooked Creek before the catch-and-release area toward Rim Shoals while they were camping with family at the White Buffalo Resort. After this catch of a lifetime, Braelyn released the trout back to the waters for maybe someone else's future fishing story. Photo provided by Joanna Bishop.

Gary Harris caught this catfish on a Rat-L-Trap in shallow water late in the evening while bass fishing on Lake Ouachita last weekend. Catfish will begin spawning in later spring, so begin to look first for a nice flathead bite around the Memorial Day weekend holiday.

Doug Isanhart of Conway recently went back to the exact location, White Hole on the White River, where last year he had caught some beautiful brown trout and one year later connected again. In fact, his son, John, and Doug Hagee also caught brown trout in the same location. They had a great day until hitting a rock and breaking their motor, which put a halt to a three-hour fishing day. But, Doug tells us, they nevertheless landed four species of trout from the White River.

Bryson Harpole of Beebe caught this dandy brown trout on the Little Red River while fishing with guide Mike Winkler of Little Red Fly Fishing Trips. Greers Ferry Lake is high and the Army Corps of Engineers has been moving water off the lake with long (12-hour) releases at the dam. Nevertheless, Mike says, when the water is falling out the trout fishing on the Little Red has been very good. Caddis patterns and pheasant tail nymphs along with midge patterns have been great, he said, and streamer fishing has been excellent.
