Arkansas (South Basin)

Rating - Fair   

Saturday, Nov 30 2019
Flows below Salida are around 620 cfs. Expect to see a significant drop in flows in the coming weeks. Nymphing is going to be the primary method to catch fish. Small stoneflies like Pats Rubber Legs, Two Bit Hookers, and Wired Stones will work well. Below that try a small midge or baetis pattern. Zebra midges, bling midges, foam back emergers, juju baetis, and darth baetis are all productive choices.
