LITTLE RED RIVER (GREERS FERRY TAILWATER) The Corps of Engineers is releasing 12 hours of two units of generation daily. This generation pattern provides wading opportunities on the upper sections of the river early mornings, and on the middle and lower sections later in the day. This pattern is also providing excellent drift-fishing on all sections. Use midges, sowbugs, emergers, blue-winged olives and streamers for fly-fishing. For Trout Magnet fishing, go with hot pink bodies on chartreuse jigheads.

WHITE RIVER Rainbow trout are biting shrimp and scented egg baits and jigs. Best jig colors are brown/orange, ginger/orange and tri-olive. Fishing is also good with 1/4-ounce Little Cleos, gold and silver.

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.

SPRING RIVER Olive and brown Woolies have been the hot flies in size 10-8 with a small split shot to get it down to the fish. An olive or yellow jig can work well, also. On the tough days when a bite is hard to get, downsize to a size 14-16 tungsten bead-head Woolly Bugger or nymph. Orange, black and white Trout Magnets are working well.

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.
