The Tricos are still going strong, but the spinner fall depends on weather. Warmer mornings gets things moving earlier and cooler mornings take it a while to get moving. A #24 parachute or a 180 Degree Trico have been working well. The smarter fish eating single spinners require a bit more precise imitation in a size 26! They will eat it, but hooking them is a bit challenging with the small hook.

The Arkansas has been fishing great as well. If you can cast, there are hungry fish all around. Some fish have been taken on big dries, but most have been on droppers such as the PMD Barr Emerger and now, anything with red on it. Think tungsten to get down where the fish are in faster water. Pocket water is key!
