The Spring River of Hardy Arkansas is a world class trout fishing destination. In years past, anglers would pass this river up to fish the Norfork and the White Rivers of Arkansas but now, the river is catching up to awesome fishing and size limits comparable to a blue ribbon world class trout fishery!
Do not pass an opportunity up to fish this worlld class trout fishing destination! It's nice fishing for a freestone river such as that is not effected by the dam generation. This river has class 3 rapids but pretty tame river for the most part.
Your fly rod sizes should be from a 3 weight to a 6 weight with more experienced anglers using 3 weights and the bigger trout yielding more to the 6 weight rods. The trout on the right was caught with a 4 weight rod. Trout of this size is not uncommon with practicing patience and persistence.
The dam has also been in repair for the last year but was completed as of the beginning of October 2014 which is just in time for the Fall and winter spawning season.
