    By Wayne Morgenthaler We had enough rain to bring streams up to almost normal levels.  Catch and release is still in effect, so return the trout back into the creeks as quick as possible.  Spin casting or fly casting has had good success.  I prefer spinners in the small sizes.  Gold or silver Panther Martins work the best on sm...

    A week plus of June-like daytime temps took care of all ice (Trout out as of this weekend).  Many smaller lakes had temps shoot up so quickly as to have had the walleyes finish up spawning.  Sunday saw temps back down into April reality, but, with many lakes in the high 40’s already, spawning should continue, just not as quick...

    By John Luthens Trekking to southwestern Arkansas to mine for diamonds was measured in my mind against Klondike gold in northern Alaska. I’m not a prospector and had never been to either place. I only held visions of what it would be like. Thoughts of Alaska were easy. They garnered snow-capped mountains; Rushing streams splitting boulders,...
