LITTLE RED RIVER (GREERS FERRY TAILWATER) Generators are running about 14 hours, creating continuous high water. Use long leaders and weight for fly fishing and Trout Magnet fishing. Streamers are effective near the shore, as are San Juan worms, micro jigs, and march brown patterns. Pheasant tails, sowbugs and streamers are effective in normal water conditions. Hot pink, cotton candy and white bodies on chartreuse jigheads are recommended for Trout Magnet spin fishing.

WHITE RIVER

High water has been prevalent in the morning and drops to minimum flow for several hours around noon. High water returns in early evening and lasts through the night. Trout have been hitting small pink midge flies. They are also biting Zig Jigs and Maribou jigs, white on white or white with red or pink heads. Silver/blue spoons are effective, as are Rebel Wee Craws, live crawfish 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.

LAKE HAMILTON TAILWATER Bank fishermen are catching trout on waxworms or mealworms floated just off the bottom with a marshmallow floater. Redworms or nightcrawlers also will be effective if presented in the same manner. Fly fishermen can catch limits of fish casting egg patterns in white or yellow under a strike indicator. San Juan worms in red or hot pink will draw strikes from hungry trout in areas close to the main channel where some current is present. Spin fishermen are successful casting silver or gold Super Dupers near rocks in current.
