LITTLE RED RIVER (GREERS FERRY TAILWATER) The river is clear with the 12-hour generation continuing through Friday with a possible slight increase starting Saturday. This increase will probably amount to an hour or two of generation. This will increase gradually to an 18-hour release schedule, as the lower rivers will allow, until the lake is at the normal level of 462.04. Trout have been biting mayfly nymphs and midge pupa. For Trout Magnet fishing use hot pink-colored bodies on chartreuse jigheads.

WHITE RIVER Brown trout are biting sculpins, shad, minnows and white jigs. Rainbow trout are biting river rigs, PowerBait, Power Worms and shrimp.

NORFORK TAILWATER The most productive flies have been small midge patterns like ruby, root beer and zebra midges. Black or red with silver wire and silver bead are best. Soft hackles like the green butt are working well, too. Egg patterns also have been productive. Double-fly nymph rigs have been very effective. Try a small Y2K suspended 18 inches below a brightly colored San Juan worm. Best colors are hot fluorescent pink or cerise. The fishing is better in the morning.

BEAVER TAILWATER Trout have been biting PowerBaits fished with light terminal tackle. Spoons of various colors have produced nice numbers as well. The area between Parker Bottoms and Spider Creek has been the hot spot.

SPRING RIVER Nymphs and woolly buggers have been hot. Brown and olive have been the best colors. A small split shot above the fly will help get the fly down to the bottom where the fish are. A black or hot pink Trout Magnet can be hot most days.

LAKE HAMILTON TAILWATER Rainbow trout will bite PowerBait, waxworms and mealworms, nightcrawlers and corn presented under a bobber or fished just off the bottom with a marshmallow floater. Shoreline anglers can catch fish this way in slack water. In fast water, spin fishermen can catch trout with white or brown Rooster Tails or black/silver Rapalas. Trolling shallow running crankbaits against the current will also produce results in the early morning or late evening. Crappie can be caught close to the bank near the dam with live minnows under a bobber or tightlined from a boat, or with small jigs in gray or white.
