The spawn has not really started yet. This cold snap will help it tremendously. I have posted a picture of a redd. Please be on the lookout for these spots on the shoals. Please do not walk through these areas if at all possible. Water levels will be very low over the next few weeks at least.
It is an amazing thing to witness. I posted a video in the blog last year and it is so cool! These fish are very stressed during this time. Please treat these beautiful fish with respect. Try not to foul hook these fish. If you do please break them off. Try not to keep these fish out of the water for too long. Take a quick picture and return them to the water. Enjoy this truly special time in Arkansas!!! Send us your pictures and we will try our best to post them for you!
