I just got back from Alaska and have not been on the river much. However we did have Duffy Oyster and his Grandson Luke up for a couple of days and they slayed the fish on both Flies and Bait.
A great fall fish!
The river is in perfect condition due to our lakes finally reaching pool level a week or so ago. The White has been running the equivalent of about 3 to 4 generators which is just about perfect for drifting and flyfishing in my opinion. The hopper bite has slowed down some but is still good and coupled on a hopper dropper combo it is deadly right now.

This weeks weather is predicted to be excellent and the fishing is going to just continue to get better. There have been some concerns about low dissolved oxygen levels near rhe dam but after talking with Steve and Jim who both fished it two days ago the fishing was excellent. Steve was whacking lots of fish on hoppers and Jim was nymphing under an indicator and said they pretty much caught a fish or two on EVERY drift. Thats about as good as it gets!
This early fall weather offers some of the most ideal conditions and scenery that the Ozarks has to offer. The leaves are just starting to change andthere is a pleasant crispness in the air in the morning with shirtsleeve weather by mid afternoon. For all of you fair weather fishermen now is the time to be on the White River.
