The Middle Fork was seasonably low on Sept. 22, but yielded a surprising number of fish.

Big fish swim in small waters when Ozarks streams shrink to low levels in autumn.

Becky Roark wades a pool on the Middle Fork of the White River. Roark is outreach coordinator at the Beaver Watershed Alliance.

Roark uses single-tail grubs to catch smallmouth bass like this one.

Work for clean water

The Beaver Watershed Alliance formed in 2011 to work to maintain high quality drinking water in Beaver Lake and improve water quality in the lake watershed.

The alliance represents a diverse group, from conservation, education, water utilities, business, agriculture, recreation and local government, working together for clean water.
