Opening with a photo of a rainbow trout doing its best imitation of a jumping tarpon, Steve Taylor’s article on this Arkansas river describes at length how to fish the 29 miles of river below the Narrows Dam near Murfreesboro. Local guide Jeff Guerin explains his summertime tactics: “‘You’re usually fishing in shallow water-from 1 foot to ankle deep-in summer, so I go to a 10- to 12-foot leader with 3 to 4 feet of tippet. We’re fishing 7X and 8X tippets and fluorocarbon (the lightest, lowest-visibility line available) and getting refusals. These fish know what a leader is.'” In Arkansas Game & Fish.
