February 1st - It's like Christmas to Trout Fishermen on the White River

By Gastons White River Resort
Christmas is to children, like The Catch and Release Area below Bull Shoals Dam is to the White River Trout Fisherman. The trophy trout have been able to feed, breed, and grow without any negative pressure from an outside source. Many of the Brown Trout have been spawning over the past two months and are now hungry. These trophies are going to be hungry and agressive, feeding on some if not all flies and bait fish. Any fishermen willing to try their luck in what could be cold weather, has the potential to catch, photograph, and release a real Trophy Trout. The bite should be nothing short of magical!

I am a magazine-aholic!  One of my favorite magazines that covers travel all over the south is the AAA Southern Traveler.  The newest edition, May-June 2009, gives some wonderful information about setting up camp in northern Arkansas, the outstanding Ozarks! The article covers camping along the Buffalo, waterside camping at Lake Norfork and cave country camping.  You can read the article by Jinny Ravenscroft Danzer  by clicking the following link   http://www.ouraaa.com/traveler/south/2009/05/fNatural.html  

Carp Return to Quarry Marina

By Quarry Marina
Each year in the late spring, the school of carp return from their winter feeding grounds to their home at Quarry Marina.  It's amazing how they come back to the same place each year, specifically to the same stalls.  This morning 8 carp appeared in the front stall "begging" to be fed!  I recognized one of the carp as one that has been here for at least 6 years...it has a unique crooked mouth!  An internet article stated that common carp can live up to 25 years in the wild......so our carp will be returning for a long time and hopefully their numbers will increase!
