Arkansas River, Pool 5

Recommended Posts

Fished some backwater in pool 5 today. Fishing was a little slow but managed several small males and 2 females 4lb+ and 2.5lb. Both Females had spawned out. Noticed lots of fry. Definitely moving past the spawn. I heard a guy crappie fishing say they weren't liking his minnows so they must have been slow today too. We did catch one nice crappie. All where caught on chartreuse, gold willow leaf spinner bait and a craw colored shallow crank around wood cover. Slow but always good to be on the river. All fish released to be caught another day.


Conditions were low 70's and WINDY. Water was getting muddy. Flow at a touch over 40,000cfs. Never turned on the DF so can't say exactly what the water temp was. I figure mid 60's.

Great report. I bet things will start to pick up soon.


Good luck!
