We launched at 6:30 this morning in the fog and headed upstream.  Aboard was a nice  young couple from London, England, who decided to spend some of their USA vacation here in north Arkansas and check out the trout fishing.  We didn’t see much in in the way of wild life, perhaps due to the heavy mist. Several birds, including some blue herons, and an otter did provide some entertainment for our guests from overseas. For bait today we used both Power Eggs and Power Bait of varying colors.  The bite was slow, but productive, so we moved again a couple of more times.  No slots made it into the boat today, but the fish we landed were quite fiesty and fun to catch.  Time ran out so we had to return to the launch ramp.  We were happy to send this couple back to their night’s lodging with a bag of filleted trout to cook for their dinner.  In England, they are not allowed to keep the fish they catch, so this was quite a treat.  See you on the river and tight lines to all.
